BIG DECISION??? Turn Down the Lights!
“When you’re under pressure, try heading to a dimmer are to help yourself think more rationally. Bright light magnifies our emotional reactions, according to new research from the university of Toronto, Scarborough. The light can make you perceive warmth — regardless of whether it’s hot or not — and that perception of heat turns our emotional system on, says study author Alison Jing Xu, PhD. In other words, you may feel things more intensely– and possibly react more impulsively– when the lights are beaming down. Softer lighting? A bright idea.”
