Researchers from the University of Liverpool have published a study highlighting the effectiveness of using positive memories and images to help generate positive emotions. It has been suggested that savouring positive memories can generate positive emotions. Increasing positive emotion can have a range of benefits including reducing attention to and experiences of threat.
