Washing Your Hands Can Boost Your Mood
Feeling a bit sluggish today? Have the winter blahs? Head to the bathroom and wash away those blues. Really?
Yes, really. Researchers at the University of Michigan say washing your hands not only does the obvious, but also can improve your mood as well. The reason? Well, according to the study, cleaning your hands, even taking a shower, is about removing residue and that also translates into mental residue. The study’s leader says “people can rid themselves of a sense of immorality, lucky or unlucky feelings, or doubt about a decision” by the simple act of cleansing. Not near a bathroom? No problem. The study also found that just thinking about washing your hands or taking a shower can make you feel better. Try it and let me know if it works.
