Your moods can tank or energize an entire group – without a word spoken! How so?
Because of mirror neurons you are impacted by others’ moods, like it or not. Ever notice how enjoyable it is to hang out with happy, self-confident peers? The opposite is also true.
Your Moods Impact Others
It’s also true that your bad moods can topple a house, when you least expect it to fall on your head!
People high in intrapersonal intelligence, on the other hand, tend to see issues from others’ viewpoint. You can count on them to come down on the side of compassion when conflict strikes you.
Body Language Fosters or Kills Wonder
Far fewer people recognize how body language fosters or diminishes people nearly, especially those who love you! How so?
Watch others behave badly when you feel edgy, or your amygdala goes untamed. The cortisol chemical that controls your brain may be quietly moody – but cortisol screams discontent through related body language, regardless of spoken or “out of sorts” unspoken outcomes. Moods impact others through mirror neurons – in ways that drag them down.
Moods as Habits
Moods shout louder than words often because they influence brain wave activity and circuitry which can be altered and upgraded to benefit outcomes with influences such as music in the background. Choice becomes the operative tool! Sluggish brains, for instance, can create toxins that lead to depression and moodiness you may not recognize.
So why do some folks revert to moods that hurt themselves and others? Again it relates to choice!
Moods as Choice
Move multiple intelligences up a notch and watch others leap on board with hidden and unused talents and moods that that add value to any project. Show impatience with those around you, on the other hand, and risk empowering the cynic to exclude top talents. Have you seen it happen?
Moods Impact Mental Health
Good moods take advantage of working memory and encourage others to take informed risks that move people beyond conflicts into creation and productivity. Rather than lock your mind into tough times, you can choose moods that inspire discouraged peers who may be stuck in myths.
Consider neuro discoveries about how moods rejuvenate an ordinary day into extraordinary outcomes.
What new neuro-discoveries could offer new awareness to your moods, so that others find spaces to grow around you when their chips are down?
Identify that good mood chemical and electrical circuitry for your brain, and you also choose daily how to remap that for benefit to boot!
