How does Happiness improve our Vision?

The human eye is an extremely complex piece of machinery so to speak. It consists of 30 different components working together making us able to see.

You probably wouldn’t expect that feeling happy could make any difference on the functioning of this organ.

Well, actually it can.

A study from the University of Toronto found that our state of mind had an impact of our ability to process information from a number of pictures.

People in a negative state of mind picked up fewer details from the pictures than people with positive emotions. The happy people pretty much saw everything!

Other experiments have reached similar conclusions. One study found for example that a positive state of mind improved our peripheral vision - the part of vision outside the very center of our attention.
