Bad Mood and Finances

Bad mood, bad emotion. Bad state. Money and mood. Angry.

Every day we meet people who seem as if they are immune to problems. The reality is that we all have bad moods.

Where does that bad mood come from?

This universal emotion is a state of mind. However, what follows this varies and most experts have different opinions. Even some of them see incredibly positive things coming out of a bad mood.

One of the reasons we have bad moods is the denial of reality. “They are not satisfied with the expectation they had deposited. This produces a frustration that can turn into a bad mood. This makes them see things still more negatively.” Says psychologist and therapist Marta Centellas, who sees a bad mood as a distortion of the perception of the present.

Who suffers the most?

Egocentric people suffer more bad tempers than others, according to psychologist Diana Perez Cortés. “Bad moods are being in resistance with yourself, second guessing yourself because you feel bad about yourself. The ego wants things for itself and by not getting it, frustration sets in.  Obviously, I am speaking in the extreme case, as in everything there are degrees. ”

Apart from the egocentric, there are people equally likely to suffer this state : Hypersensitive, because they always live in a state of alertness and tension. Perfectionists, for their high levels of demands and dissatisfaction.  Depressive for their recurring feeling of hopelessness.

Yet there is a bright side:

There are other studies that even seem to applaud the bad mood. Joseph Forgas, writes for the Australian Journal of Science and is a Professor of Psychology at the University of New South Wales in Australia, says that bad moods improve coping skills because they are less credulous people, think more clearly, and have a greater communicative capacity. “Irritability, in moderate doses, tends to promote a more concrete and ultimately more successful style of communication. While positive moods seems to promote creativity, flexibility and cooperation, bad moods fosters melancholy and activates a more attentive, thoughtful and careful way of thinking. ”

However, other experts advise better to let anger and bad moods pass to make decisions. “It is not appropriate to make decisions when one is under the effect of an overwhelmed emotion. What is blocked is rational thinking and then the decisions that are made may be the least effective. These thoughts are contaminated by an effect of an emotional type”, says the psychologist Gustavo Marín.

One thing we can be sure of, we live in a society where we need money. Money is essential in our life yet is not attended to feed our emotions. Yet, it is intended to fill our basic needs such as food, hygiene, transportation and education. That is why it is very easy for financial problems to affect our moods. Or even worse, other problems tend to have us make all kinds of decisions especially financial ones that we will later regret.

When making any financial move, make sure you are cool, calm and collected so there will be no regrets.
