Positive Psychology is an approach to psychology that studies positive experiences, positive individual characteristics and institutions that promote their potentialization and that significantly affect the quality of life of individuals, in addition to contributing to the absence or reduction of psychopathologies. Within the contribution of Positive Psychology, the importance of flowering is highlighted, which is achieved through several elements, among which we highlight positive emotions that contribute to the well-being of individuals. This study presents the results of a literature review of positive emotions and physical and mental health, from the perspective of positive psychology from 2013 to 2018. From this review, the relationship between positive emotions and physical and mental health is determined, by consulting the Scopus and Proquest databases.
