Bad mood not such a bad thing: UW study

A bad mood isn’t necessarily a bad thing, according to a University of Waterloo study

UW researchers say a foul mood may it easier for some people to handle every day tasks.

They looked at how mood can influence skills that people need to deal with the demands of everyday life.

They found that a bad mood can help some people’s executive functioning — such as their ability to focus attention, manage time and prioritize tasks.

The research is published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences.
