Feeling grumpy 'is good for you'
In a bad mood? Don't worry - according to research, it's good for you.

An Australian psychology expert who has been studying emotions has found being grumpy makes us think more clearly.

In contrast to those annoying happy types, miserable people are better at decision-making and less gullible, his experiments showed.

While cheerfulness fosters creativity, gloominess breeds attentiveness and careful thinking, Professor Joe Forgas told Australian Science Magazine.

'Eeyore days'

The University of New South Wales researcher says a grumpy person can cope with more demanding situations than a happy one because of the way the brain "promotes information processing strategies".

“ Negative moods trigger more attentive, careful thinking, paying greater attention to the external world ”
Professor Joe Forgas
He asked volunteers to watch different films and dwell on positive or negative events in their life, designed to put them in either a good or bad mood.

Next he asked them to take part in a series of tasks, including judging the truth of urban myths and providing eyewitness accounts of events.

Those in a bad mood outperformed those who were jolly - they made fewer mistakes and were better communicators.

Professor Forgas said: "Whereas positive mood seems to promote creativity, flexibility, co-operation and reliance on mental shortcuts, negative moods trigger more attentive, careful thinking, paying greater attention to the external world."

The study also found that sad people were better at stating their case through written arguments, which Forgas said showed that a "mildly negative mood may actually promote a more concrete, accommodative and ultimately more successful communication style".

His earlier work shows the weather has a similar impact on us - wet, dreary days sharpened memory, while bright sunny spells make people forgetful.

God I love research. Being in a bad mood helps you think clearly, chocolate is antioxidant rich, coffee and Indian food prevent dementia. My life is going to be just fine. Wink

depends on how bad my lows are. but when I'm so bad off I'm vomiting and not sleeping... its all I can do to play my guitar or draw to get the feelings out and manage some sort of control. but there are times where I've just curled up and let the world run without me... but its rare.

Life is full of shitty paradoxes too often. Feeling grumpy sucks yet it is good for you...so good health means feeling shitty??

I don't think the article was trying to imply that good health equals feeling shitty. Although when I do work out I usually feel like crap (sweaty, tired) rather than feeling great, so maybe there is something to that. Razz

i stayed in bed most of the day. i had to take kids to school so that really screwed up my plans. if i didn't have to nurse and take care of a baby it would have been better as well.

tonight i was gunna go and hang with a friend, but i told him last night that i had changed my mind. instead i went to a two hour therapy session. much needed. i go back next week. feeling a bit better after my session.
