Moods have essential connections with our mental and physical well-being. Moods can affect how you perceive, interpret, judge, and translate the world around you, and can also direct your behaviour. Bad moods are connected with depression, anxiety, aggression, poor self-esteem, physiological stress, and a decrease in sexual arousal.
A moody person may be going through a difficult stage in their lives; they may be exhausted, ill, chronically worried, or lacking what they need in terms of love, sleep, challenge, or security. But there is another type of moodiness; that of the bully, who will use their moods to intimidate and manipulate. They use it to garner attention, power, praise, and pity. It is some of these aspects of moodiness that I want us to look at in this lecture.
This discussion (held on 9 August 2015) attempted to explain some of the aspects of moodiness that affect our lives and those of others around us. Listen, learn, laugh, and edit your Youniverse!
