For weeks seven through ten we in the science of happiness class embarked on a huge journey through learning wonderful topics that all flow and correlate with each other. We first began with talking about depression and mood states , and how each different situations we face in life can and will foster mood changes. The larger problems come when you allow those mood changes to go along without being addressed and that consistent mood becomes depression. Then our focused turned to anxiety disorders , and we began to think on the things that we worry about on a daily basis. A correlation was shown that poor states or mood and depression and all of their effects can lead to anxiety disorders. which is like a building block affect.
Our discussion on romantic relationships brought forth a new ideology to my life. We learned why relationships ( romantic) play a role in our happiness. Then we found that the most successful relationships we knew of practiced or tried their best to practiced better states of mood , which would allow them to achieve competence. which plays a key role in having a successful romantic relationship.
The last topic we talked about really pulled all of the other topics together , because it shows you your personality types and what type of person you are , ad what traits you lack or have a strong presence of .With that knowledge of who you are as a person you are able to asses yourself and see what mood states you have , see if we had characteristics or traits that are linked to depression , and analyze ourselves lives and see what we worry about and if we are extremely anxious. Most of all we were able to see if our personality traits we posses would or wouldn’t be viable to a strong and prosperous romantic relationship.
Having more knowledge on our strengths and weaknesses and positive psychology we are able to make much better connections to the material that we learned from weeks seven through ten. It also caused me to become more mindful of the topics and how to implement them to my everyday life. Basically what I have learned from these few weeks were the materials to be happy and to promote happiness to those around me effectively. I have also learned that no matter the test or trial I may be enduring , I have to think positively I try daily to imply positive thinking into to my day, which was hard at first and has become easier and the days have become more happier. which in turn I don’t stress as much or worry as much as I did before I cut out negative thinking , hence the picture in the beginning of the post.
