In A Bad Mood? You Might Have Picked It Up

MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Like a cold, good and bad moods can be ‘picked up’ from those around you.

Your friends have the most impact, according to a new study led by the University of Warwick.

It is easy to understand why the ungodly are in a grumbling bad mood, they have hopeless lives, but there is no excuse for those whom God has called out of sin to trample on the grace that is attempting to save them.

So the men Moses had sent to explore the land, who returned and made the whole community grumble against him by spreading a bad report about it- these men responsible for spreading the bad report about the land were struck down and died of a plague before the Lord . (Numbers 14:36-37)

  • According to the study, the opposite applies to people who surrounded themselves with more positive people. – CBS

Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always try to be kind to each other and to everyone else. Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not put out the Spirit’s fire; (1 Thessalonians 5:15-19)

(miami.cbslocal.com)—“Evidence suggests mood may spread from person to person via a process known as social contagion,” said Public health statistics researcher Rob Eyre who led the study.

The team’s findings show that’s not the only thing that spreads among friends – so do symptoms of depression like helplessness and loss of interest.

While those are contagious, they are not strong enough to push other friends into depression, researchers said.

It’s also about how many people you surround yourself with.

They found that having more friends who suffer from bad moods makes it more likely for you to be in a bad mood with a lesser chance of improving your mood.

There is flip side to that.

According to the study, the opposite applies to people who surrounded themselves with more positive people.
