Lest you think I’m just being goofy, videos have long been used in psychology to induce good moods. I remember working on studies in grad school where the IRB would require we do something positive at the end of the experience to make sure participants left in a good mood; videos of puppies and kittens seemed to do the trick. Watching happy videos isn’t only good for your mood; it can also make you more creative and productive.
So get clicking, and don’t forget to leave some of your favorite videos in the comments to spread the love!
