• The scientists have proved that we sometimes "get up on the wrong foot"
Sometimes there with you is that you wake up in a bad mood?
Did you have in the morning feeling that now everything goes wrong - whether you're stuck in a traffic jam on the road, whether you inflict boss spacing, or all your dates will end nothing? And then, thank God, nothing happened. So how are you today legs up?
The anticipation of trouble can lead to real trouble
In the new study, conducted by psychologists at the University of Pennsylvania Zhinshil Khayan, scientists have found that a person's mood after waking up in the morning has a great influence on the rest of the day. You see, people have a tremendous ability to predict what will happen during the day, and it can be very useful when you need to do to prepare for the worst. Maybe there is nothing too surprising. But the fact is, Khayan says that the ability to predict the worst "may cause damage to memory, whether occurring anticipated stressful event or not."
That's the problem. Of course, if you have properly tuned to a bad day, you can prepare for trouble, or even prevent them. But if you are not correctly configured, your day is likely to go wrong, as you would like, simply because of the thought alone. Anyway, psychologists have long suspected this, and in order to test this hypothesis, they asked 240 volunteers every morning using a special application on the smartphone to record their mood and tell them. In particular, the participants had to predict how stressful it will be for them a day, and then tell five more times during the day on their current stress levels. Finally, before going to bed, they should let you know how tense is the next day, according to their mood.
The trouble can be prevented
In addition, the researchers asked the participants during the day to test their working memory. And, surprisingly, it was found that higher stress levels correspond to lower performance indicators. However, it is noteworthy that a premonition of stress early in the morning had an even greater effect on working memory than the actual stress. That is - if you wake up feeling that everything is horrible, your brain will be "overwhelmed" by this thought during the day.
One factor that has had little effect on working memory, there was an expectation of stress before bedtime. This is exactly what will help you manage stress in anticipation of future events: If you think that in the near future you may be in trouble, get ready for the day before, before going to bed. Thus, you can wake up with a prepared plan for avoiding trouble, rather than anticipate something bad for a morning coffee. According to research, it will also help you sleep better.
