Tipp FM Radio

Toxic Positivity – Dr Dean Burnett – Neuroscientist and writer - Author of 'The Idiot Brain' 'The Happy Brain' & 'Brain Yapping' - We are often encouraged to take on a more positive mindset and always look at things with rose coloured glasses.This advice has never been stronger than during the Pandemic but there are warnings that negative thoughts and experiences should not be ignored.‘Toxic positivity,’ ‘is when positivity ignores reality. It’s when people insist on themselves and others being happy, when the situation fully justifies the opposite. Its a fascinating subject and has been written about by neuroscientist and author Dr Dean Burnett, who spoke to Fran on Tipp Today this week.
