Dave’s Diary: For A Better Mood Throw Negative Thoughts Away

Continuing my search for a stress free existence I give you a new study published in Psychology Science on the fasted way to improve your mood. Here’s the recommendation– writing down your negative thoughts… and throwing them in the garbage. Something as simple as that can erase your bad mood. Lead researcher, Dr. Richard Petty, a professor at The Ohio State University, says for the experiment 83 people were asked to write down thoughts on their body image, then throw them away or keep them. They then had to rate their bodies. Petty says people who kept their papers were more likely to rate their bodies in accordance with what they wrote, and those who trashed their paper saw no change in how they rated their bodies. Petty says just as the mind controls the body, your body can control your mind. (Women’s Health)

So…put it to paper and then to the match and watch your bad mood go up in smoke!
