Wouldn’t it be cool if you could foresee or control your mood? We present you with 3 hacks to manipulate your mood. We are positive that you will be impressed.
1. Singing in the rain? Yeah, not so much.
Research points that the sunnier and more pleasant a day is, the more pleasant your mood will be.
It’s not really that hard to believe, you wake up in the morning, open the blinders and the beautiful sun is shining down on you. The trees look greener and the sky looks bluer. You tend to think that nothing will go wrong and hence, your mood is manipulated.
Infact, in a research study, 122 students were approached with ideas on how to conduct an examination. Some were approached on sunny days and some on gloomy ones.
The results demonstrated that students approached on days with pleasant weather were more easily persuaded by weak arguments.
2. Music to my mind!
When you’re in a foul mood, just listen to upbeat and happy music, and we can guarantee that it will make you feel better! We have research that says so!
Research published by the University of Missouri shows a positive relation between upbeat music and elevated moods.
3. Go green, literally
We’ve previously spoken about how looking at nature or even pictures of nature can have a calming effect on your mind. But here we are talking about the fascinating psychology behind the effect of different colours on minds.
While the effects of the colours red and blue are fairly well documented, here is a lesser known fact about the colour green – it boosts creativity!
According to research study:
Participants who were shown glimpses of the colour green, even briefly, outdid the participants who were shown other colours when it came to creative tasks.
