RANDOM FACT: Happiness

According to a new Yale University study, heating up will improve your mood.  Our physical temperature and how connected we feel to others both register in the same part of the brain and often become linked, explains study coauthor John Bargh, Ph. D., professor of psychology and cognitive science.  Plus we associate warmth with the love and security we experienced during childhood.  “Any source of heat – wearing a sweater, bundling up in a blanket or holding a mug of hot chocolate – should give you that sense of comfort,” Bargh says.
