What is Emotion?
To put it simply, Emotion is a mental state which makes us to feel and behave in a certain way. For example when we experience the emotion of fear, we feel scared and we flee as a direct result of it. Our body also responds to the emotions and our physiology changes according to how we feel. For example we fall sick when we are deeply saddened or we glow radiantly when we are extremely happy.
In fact, emotions are the most important aspect of our mental life which contributes to the quality of our existence. Without our emotions, life is not worth living. It's also important to us how the people whom we deal with feel. We look at each others faces to judge the moods we are in. We use the expression of our emotion to let others know how we feel. The true feelings of a human also can be judged by the tone of the voice, bodily posture and body language.
Emotions can be divided into two groups of simple and complex emotions. They can also be divided into positive and negative sub-categories. Some examples of a human's common emotions include happiness, sadness, joy, depression, love, anger, and so on.
Interestingly, over six hundred English words are used to define human emotions and forty two facial muscles are used to express emotional states.

What is Mood?
An emotional mood is a longer lasting emotional state. Moods can last from several hours to several days. Moods are less intense comparing to the simple emotions. Generally, when you are in a positive emotional state you can say you are in a good mood, and to the contrary, when you feel negative emotions, you would express yourself by saying that you are in bad mood.
