Bad Mood Fouls Your Health

JUNE 01, 2002

The key isn?t how stressed you are, but how long you are stressed,? said Scott Hemenover, PhD, who presented his findings at the Midwestern Psychological Association conference. Dr. Hemenover said that teaching such people to change their negative way of thinking could help them bounce back from depression and anger more quickly, and thereby protect their health.
