坦然接受負面情緒有益於心理健康，來自加州柏克萊大學的慕斯助理教授（Iris mauss）並同時發表於Journal of Personality and Social Psychology，開放的態度對於負面情緒也許是其中的關鍵，因為你不會在難過的情緒上放入過多注意力，又或者是你持續反思你的情緒，更容易解開其中的結。
The results suggest that people who commonly resist acknowledging their darkest emotions, or judge them harshly, can end up feeling more psychologically stressed.
By contrast, those who generally allow such bleak feelings as sadness, disappointment and resentment to run their course reported fewer mood disorder symptoms than those who critique them or push them away, even after six months.
"It turns out that how we approach our own negative emotional reactions is really important for our overall well-being," said study lead author Brett Ford, an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Toronto. "People who accept these emotions without judging or trying to change them are able to cope with their stress more successfully."
Three separate studies were conducted on various groups both in the lab and online, and factored in age, gender, socio-economic status and other demographic variables.
"It's easier to have an accepting attitude if you lead a pampered life, which is why we ruled out socio-economic status and major life stressors that could bias the results," Mauss said.
