COMM 225 (10/4/11) Emotional shit Strategies that don’t improve your mood o Consuming alcohol o Consuming caffeine o Consuming recreational drugs (stoners) drugs just take you away for a while o Drugs don’t consistently improve mood o Sex Strategies that work o Rigorous physical exercise- have to sweat (can include sex) Legally blonde- Exercise instructor isn’t a murderer, exercise releases endorphins, endorphins mean good mood. Happy people don’t kill people Passion: o Blended emotion o Consists of surprise and joy o Heart pounding “positive” feelings o Coupled with feelings of excitement, amazement, and sexual attraction o Doesn’t determine if you are in love with someone Passion facts: o Early stages of romantic relationships often (but not always) involve intense passion (first few weeks) o Passion and love are different (one of the biggest mistakes about relationships. Passion goes away, love doesn’t) o The longer and better you know someone- the less passion you’ll have toward them on a daily basis. They can’t surprise you if you know them
