Can a bad mood serve a good purpose?


Can a bad mood serve a good purpose?

According to Jennifer M. George, a management professor at Rice University. Positive moods are better for promoting confidence, creativity and new ideas, but negative moods can be good for focusing on the work at hand and getting it done, she said.

That is because people in bad moods tend to be more realistic, more self-critical and more attuned to detail, she said.
