OK.....so we love Halloween. We love to get scared. We love candy too I guess.

Here is the thing. Why do we love to get scared? Why do we go to Haunted Houses? Why do we love to watch scary movies? Why did I try the Nightmare King at Burger King last night, in hopes to have a nightmare?

Why is this a welcome thing for a lot of us? Have you ever wondered about that?

Well there is a scientific explanation. According to a new study when we do something scary, when we know there is to actual danger....it affects our brains the way a real scary situation actually would.

So basically your brain is tricked into releasing endorphins....those endorphins are what make you feel good and makes you in a much better mood. Try it!

Get scared and see how your mood improves!
