Humanoids have a natural negativity bias – this means it’s easier to focus on the bad things in life than good things.
This bias has evolved over millions of years for survival purposes. When the cave person had to go out and hunt for food, for example, his negativity bias helped him watch out for danger in his environment.
In modern day, the negativity bias has other effects. You might focus on negative feelings, emotions, and events in your life far more than positive ones due to this bias.
To counteract the bias, you need to practice happiness skills. You will learn how to do this in the program!
