What do you typically do when you feel down in the dumps and you want a mood boost? Eat chocolate? That’s what I do, but then you have to deal with the calories. Do you want a calorie free way to brighten your day? According to Prevention magazine, researchers at the United Kingdom’s Open University examined how much people’s mood rose after eating chocolate, sipping an alcoholic drink, watching TV, listening to music, or looking at photos. Guess what they found? Music and chocolate didn’t do much of anything. Alcohol and TV gave a slight lift. But viewing personal photos was by far the thing that really made people feel sigificantly better. I don’t really know how they can measure such things. But, I can’t disagree with them, when I know how much special photos mean to my clients. Now, looking through photos while eating chocolate and listening to my favorite music; that sounds like a good time.
