Lonley People's Brains Work Differently

Did you ever have a song play in your head like, “Ah, look at all the lonely people?” That’s the old Eleanor Rigby Beatles tune.  Consider a new research finding that the brains of lonely people are not looking for smiles and laughter to cheer them up, instead, because we are wired for survival, and isolated people are more vulnerable, they remain vigilant looking for perceived threats such as frowns or sneers. So smile a few more times today and look for happy faces to make the world a more warm and welcoming place.

Emmys 2015: Jon Hamm prostrates himself on stage in supplicating Emmy ‘Thank you’ speech, Patti Wood

Emmys 2015: Jon Hamm prostrates himself on stage in supplicating Emmy ‘Thank you’ speech

acceptance speech — and that made him an even bigger winner.
Hamm oozed humility, with an “I’m not worthy” approach that made him the sexiest supplicant in Emmy history.
The 44-year-old “Mad Men” star is in a 12-step program, but he didn’t take the stairs to claim his prize as best actor in a drama — his first after seven consecutive snubs. Instead, Hamm took the floor, wriggling onto the stage on his belly.
Yes, he prostrated himself before millions. And that came after he dropped his head to his chest after hearing Tina Fey announce his name.
“It's not pretty. It’s all awkward. (He’s saying) ‘I don't even deserve to walk up the steps,’” says Atlanta-based body language expert Patti Wood. “It’s clearly saying, I am humble.”
Hamm’s self-censure comes after his personal annus horribilis .

Yes, Jon Hamm smiled after he accepted the award for best actor in a drama series for “Mad Men,” but not after he prostrated himself on stage and acted very humbled.

Back in February, he spent 30 days in rehab for alcohol abuse. Earlier this month, he split from longtime girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt. They’d spent 18 years together.
Despite their separation, Hamm thanked “Jen” in his speech — right after he thanked their dog, Cora.
Woods, author of “SNAP - Making the Most of First Impressions Body Language and Charisma,” believes that Hamm’s decision to go belly-up rather than taking the stairs was planned in advance of the telecast.“I know these kinds of events,” says Woods. “It’s as if he’s saying ‘I can’t do this the normal way. I’m doing it the hard way.’”
