Why is NEGATIVE MOOD such a deterrent to our BRAIN?

“The tricky thing about your brain is that, once a negative mood takes over, you lose sight of what’s good in your life, and suddenly you hate your job, you’re frustrated with family and friends, you’re dissatisfied with your accomplishments, and your optimism about the future goes out the window. Deep down, you know that things aren’t as bad as they seem, but your brain just won’t hear it.”

Adopted from Travis Bradberry’s book Emotional Intelligence 2.0

This is why we should not entertain NEGATIVE mood and remain in good spirits..
