What do you do when you're having a bad day?
If you’re like us, you kick off your shoes, get in to some comfy clothes, pop on a movie and plop on the the couch with a big giant bowl of delicious ice cream.
Ice cream just seems to make us feel better.
Well, there’s a reason ice cream makes us feel good.
Neuroscientists at the Institute of Psychiatry in London scanned the brains of people eating vanilla ice cream. (How do we get to be a subject in this study?) The scientists found an immediate effect on parts of the orbitofrontal cortex, which is a part of the brain known to activate when people enjoy themselves.
In fact, just one spoonful of ice cream lights up the happy zones of the brain. How cool is that!
Ice cream scientifically makes you happier.
So now when we’re spoon after spoon deep into an ice cream binge…we’re not simply indulging, we’re practicing science.
It Gets Even Better
Ice cream creates happiness. Literally. But it turns out that there’s something that will make you feel even better than that! So what’s that, you ask?
Acts of kindness.
London-based chartered psychologist Dr. George Fieldman and his studies have found that there are scientific benefits behind random acts of kindness. He explains, "If you eat a bowl of ice cream, you get a good feeling…" But "An act of kindness endures better.” In other words, doing acts of kindness makes us feel happy, longer.
