A positive mood can help the brain think more creatively

The results of a study published in the journal Psychological Science show that people in a good mood may be able to think more creatively than those in a less positive state of mind.

“Generally, positive mood has been found to enhance creative problem solving and flexible yet careful thinking,” says researcher Ruby Nadler. “If you have a project where you want to think innovatively, or you have a problem to carefully consider, being in a positive mood can help you to do that.”

Volunteers were put in various moods before being given a learning task. Their moods were manipulated by using video and music clips and they were then asked to learn to recognize a pattern. In general, happy volunteers were able to successfully learn their pattern better than those who felt worse.

Those looking to increase their mood and enjoy a more productive day may want to consider taking dietary supplements like those offered by Dr. Newton’s Naturals.
