Expert Says The People You Chill With Have An Impact On Your Mood

Expert Says The People You Chill With Have An Impact On Your Mood. When you are in a good atmosphere where people are positive, your mood tends to rise.

When you are in a good atmosphere where people are positive, your mood tends to rise. However, when you are in a bad atmosphere, your mood tends to blunder. This happens without you even recognising but when you feel positive energy waves through words or emotions, your mood just tends to abide to the feelings.

A number of studies have been made on how the people you chill with affect your health. Michelle Crawford, a clinical psychologist, stated the source of the reasons why people choose the type of people they surround themselves with. The clinical psychologist says that the way one speaks and relates to their family forms a basis of how one relates to others outside of the familial relationship. “So if we come from a family where there has been abuse, or lack of attentiveness or parents who weren’t very attuned to our needs or dealing with their own things, then the way we relate to our family of origin forms our earliest templates for relationships,” says Michelle Crawford.

The clinical psychologist told W24 that this means that seldom when a person has had tough family relations they tend to choose the same types of relations as grownups, and when they’ve had loving family relations as a child they tend to choose people who’d treat them the same as grownups. The first stage of choosing relations that aid your health is by understanding how certain relations are affecting you as an individual. The clinical psychologist sees hardships in relations as a great chance to heal and stress that individuals can use communication and self-reflection as ways of working on issues.

Judging oneself and one another has to be taken out of the equation for both parties. If one is not down for change, taking a step back from that person might be a good thing for oneself. Scientists Nicholas Christakis and James Fowler, in work titled ‘Connected: The Surprising Power Of Our Social Networks and How They Shape Our Lives’, stated that people can be impacted by the people they work with, their family member, friends and also social media. This means that a person has to look at all the relationships they have in order to have a good relationship.
