Main Question or Discussion Point
I just realized how people's moods seem to affect the people around them. I mean, if some one you can tell is in a bad mood, your mood seems to deteriorate as well. Has that been proven by psychology?
That's exactly what I was refering to. I probably should have specified that. More anthropological than psychological? I hadn't thought of that.Moonbear said:I don't think Chrono was just talking about people with mood disorders, but just generally someone with a bad mood. I don't know if anyone has really studied it, might be more of an anthropological study than a psychology study, but I know I've experienced it as well. Sometimes you're just around someone who's had a really bad day and is grumpy or angry and after a while, it starts to "rub off." But, it works the other way too, if you're around someone in a good mood, it can also rub off that you end up being in a better mood too.
That's especially the case since laughing is contagious. I do know that. Of course, if that doesn't work it's probably time that they need a good hug.Moonbear said:Hard to be grumpy when someone you're with is laughing and smiling.
Would be cheaper, wouldn't it?Moonbear said:Does that mean we don't need Prozac to treat depression, just more happy people? LOL!
i often wonder if prozac takes away the body's ability to stimulate the natural seratonin in the brain? i have heard that one drops into a deep depression once they are off the happy pills.Moonbear said:Does that mean we don't need Prozac to treat depression, just more happy people? LOL!
