Everyone knows that Psychology is the study of the mind and it’s important to know about the way in which we humans behave and interact with ourselves and others. Have you ever wondered why you feel so anxious about talking in front of the class during a presentation? Or why during certain times of the year you might feel a little bummed out or depressed? Or maybe you find it hard to socialize with people in general? Due to psychology, we are able to discover why our brains make us feel these things.
Psychology is important because it essentially can explain why people act the way they do. Professional psychologists with their insight can help people improve decision making, management of stress, and their past behavior figuring out ways to better predict future behavior. Psychologists help people have a more successful life by helping them have a better career, healthier relationships, stronger self-confidence, and be able to communicate better. Through the study of psychology, people have discovered that you might feel anxious because there could be an “imbalance of hormones and chemical messengers in areas of the brain.” Or because of the lack of sunlight during the winter, people’s serotonin (a chemical in your brain, sometimes called the happy chemical) levels drop causing people to go into a depression. The best way to seek help for these types of conditions is to talk to a professional psychologist.
