Re: List of emotions that feel good.

What counts as an emotion? Play is an activity or maybe an orientation more than an emotion, to me.

Re: List of emotions that feel good.

I’m sorry but I don’t really have anything to add. So, I looked up emotions and came across this scientific paper related to the thread. I thought you may enjoy it Mild.

Re: List of emotions that feel good.

Play is important for emotional development, but I agree with peri that play
itself is not an emotion.

Feel good emotions:

Love
Joy
Gratitude
Serenity
Interest
Hope
Pride
Amusement
Inspiration
Pride

Okay ... discuss.

What ever definition of emotions that feel good, members prefer.

I just wanted to have a thread that listed good feelings members have experienced in general.
