A lot of our responses have been automated. Our brain does this to save us energy and protect us from unnecessary decision-making. Automatic reactions are often so fast, that we can only catch the emotion they evoke but not what happened before that. In this context we often talk about negative reactions. Yet today I would like to look at automatic reactions which are helpful: catch yourself holding open the door for someone, genuinely smiling or letting someone go first. Acknowledge these positive automatic responses and be proud of them.
