6 – Moods – landscape of the mind

Moods are the backdrop to our experience of the day. They influence how we feel and how we think. It is much easier to be happy, and to think positive thoughts when you are in a good mood, than those times when you are in a bad mood. Your mood influences your feelings, your emotions and your thoughts. Equally your feelings, your emotions and your thoughts can influence your mood.

Moods come from the brain stem, which is like the engine room of the brain. It is the deepest part of the brain that controls the basic functions of life, such as breathing, sleep and wake, blood pressure. Moods are more pervasive than emotions and thoughts, they are harder to notice both from a personal, internal perspective as well as seeing and directly responding other peoples’ mood.
