According to a new study, your daily emotional turmoil may have negative impact on your mental health. Scientists from the University of California conducted a study in attempt to answer a long-standing question: Do daily emotional experiences make you stronger or do these experiences drag your down?
As much as we would like to believe the first, the second seems to be true. Even your reactions to seemingly insignificant negative events, such as superficial minor arguments at work or disagreements at home, have tendency to add up and take toll on your mental health years later. Even common chronic negatives like feeling hopeless, restless or inadequate all add up. According to the researchers, it’s the chronic nature of these events that makes them so dangerous.
