From the article:
The subjects were randomly assigned to one of four groups. One group drew high-fat, high-sugar cupcakes. Another drew pictures of a high-fat, low-sugar food, pizza. A third drew low-fat, high-sugar strawberries, while a fourth drew low-fat, low-sugar peppers. Each participant was instructed to use red, green and black pencils. Using a research tool that assesses mood changes, subjects rated their hunger, mood and level of interest and excitement before and after the five-minute drawing exercise, which was done on an empty stomach.
Drawing pizzas improved the subjects' mood by 28%, while sketching cupcakes and strawberries boosted spirits by 27% and 22%, respectively. Mood in the pepper group improved by only 1%. There were no significant differences in hunger or excitement levels between the groups.
What would you draw to improve your mood? And would you be satisfied? And, of course, since this is the open thread, what else is going on?
