SelaciaDecisions and Mood


When it’s decision-making time, your mood can be pivotal. Common sense tells us this. Now there’s new research validating this idea. Here’s a link to a new study published in the Journal of Consumer Research:

We make decisions every day and our choices today will determine how happy we are tomorrow.  This latest study shows that when we are in a positive mood we will make speedier and more consistent judgments. The quality of our decisions will increase because we have chosen things with a happier mindset.

The next time you are in a store or online considering a purchase, check in with yourself to discover your emotional state. If you have just had an argument with your best friend or your husband just served you with divorce papers it might not be the best time to buy something.

A similar principle applies to your judgments of situations. Here’s an example. You have a quarrel with your partner just ahead of attending an event. Before this happened, you had high hopes of enjoying the event and connecting with some new people attending. When you arrive at the event you feel anxious and you are upset over the unresolved quarrel. Your mind races back and forth between being present at the event and being angry with your partner. The end result is that your mood sours your experience and colors what you see.

In my new book, You Guide to Earth’s Pivotal Years, you can read more about decisions and optimal ways to make them. In the chapter “The Art of Making Choices,” you’ll find helpful tips and processes that can help you to demystify the process of choice.
