Organisations are aware of the need to maintain the mental health of their employees. People’s capacity to recognise and manage their moods and emotions is critical to sustainable mental health, performance, and quality of life, while failure to do so can result in underperformance, disengagement, and in some cases, mental illness. Employees of org...

Systematic reviews and meta-analyses examining the effects of Ramadan observance on athletes’ mood states are lacking. Thus, this systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to identify the impact of Ramadan observance on athletes’ mood states assessed using validated scales. Six electronic databases (PubMed, Web of Science, Scopus, Wiley, Taylor & F...

Moods have been investigated previously in a range of cultural contexts. In our study, we investigated if six mood profiles previously identified, termed the iceberg, inverse Everest, inverse iceberg, shark fin, submerged, and surface profiles, were also evident among a Lithuanian sample. A Lithuanian translation of the Brunel Mood Scale (BRUMS-LTU...

Mood profiling is frequently used among athletes and several distinct mood profile clusters have been identified in the literature (Parsons-Smith et al., 2017). In our study, we investigated whether previously identified clusters were evident in a Malaysian population. The 24-item Malaysian Mood Scale (MASMS; Lew et al., 2022) was completed by 4,92...

Mood measures have been used with athletic populations over several decades for a multitude of purposes. In the present study, we sought to develop and validate a Malay-language version of the Brunel Mood Scale (Terry et al., 1999, 2003), referred to as the Malaysian Mood Scale (MASMS). Following a thorough translation-back translation process, the...

Mood can be considered as a diffuse and global emotional state, with both valence and arousal characteristics, that is not directed towards a specific object. Investigation of moods in specific language and cultural contexts relies on the availability of appropriately validated measures. The current study involved the translation and validation of...

Sport psychology as an academic pursuit is nearly two centuries old. An enduring goal since inception has been to understand how psychological techniques can improve athletic performance. Although much evidence exists in the form of meta-analytic reviews related to sport psychology and performance, a systematic review of these meta-analyses is abse...
Conference Paper
Mood profiling has a long history of use within sport and exercise psychology, dating back to the 1970s. Six distinct mood profiles have been reported in the literature, referred to as the iceberg, inverse iceberg, inverse Everest, shark fin, surface, and submerged profiles (Parsons-Smith et al., 2017). In the present study, we investigated whether...

Mood profiling is used in Brazil for several purposes, including prevention of overtraining syndrome (Marques & Brandao, 2010; Rohlfs, Rotta et al, 2008), evaluating cardiac rehabilitation patients (Brandt et al., 2014; Sties et al., 2014), and monitoring pre-performance moods of youth athletes (Verardi et al., 2018). The Brazil Mood Scale (BRAMS;...
Conference Paper
Mood profiling is used in a variety of sporting contexts to, for example, predict performance from pre-performance mood, monitor psychological responses to training load, injury, or travel across time zones, as a general indicator of psychological wellbeing, or to catalyze discussion between a sport psychologist and an athlete. The purpose of the p...

Mood responses are a well-established mental health indicator. Gauging mental health status over time often involves periodic mood assessment using a standardized measure, a process referred to as mood profiling. Comparison of observed mood scores against relevant normative data is central to effective mood profiling. The primary purpose of our stu...

Background: COVID-19 lockdowns have reduced opportunities for physical activity (PA) and encouraged more sedentary lifestyles. A concomitant of sedentariness is compromised mental health. We investigated the effects of COVID-19 lockdown on PA, sedentary behavior, and mental health across four Western nations (USA, UK, France, and Australia). Method...
Article
Researchers in sport and exercise psychology have shown an enduring interest in mood responses, the study of which relies on well-validated and culturally relevant measures. The current study was a cross-cultural validation of the 24-item Brunel Mood Scale (BRUMS: Terry et al., [1999]. Development and validation of a mood measure for adolescents. J...

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of its first issue, we explored publication trends in the International Journal of Sport Psychology (IJSP), with a particular focus on research contributions from Asia and Oceania. A descriptive analysis of all articles published in IJSP between 1970 and 2019 (N = 1,175) was conducted to identify trends related t...

In the area of mood profiling, six distinct profiles are reported in the literature, termed the iceberg, inverse iceberg, inverse Everest, shark fin, surface, and submerged profiles. We investigated if the prevalence of the six mood profiles varied by sex, age, and education among a large heterogeneous sample. The Brunel Mood Scale (BRUMS) was comp...

Mood profiling is a popular method of quantifying and classifying feeling states. Previous research has identified several novel mood profiles in predominantly Western English-speaking populations (Parsons-Smith et al., 2017), and replicated the findings in the domain of sport and exercise (Quartiroli et al., 2018; Terry and Parsons-Smith, 2019). T...

Regular physical activity has multifarious benefits for physical and mental health, and music has been found to exert positive effects on physical activity. Summative literature reviews and conceptual models have hypothesized potential benefits and salient mechanisms associated with music listening in exercise and sport contexts, although no large-...

Mood profiling often focuses on the antecedents and behavioural consequences of the iceberg (Morgan, 1980) and inverse iceberg profiles (Terry, 1995). Four novel and theoretically-meaningful mood profiles, termed the inverse Everest, shark fin, submerged, and surface profiles, were identified in the general population (Parsons-Smith et al., 2017)....

Mood profiling serves several functions in the sporting domain, including monitoring of athlete mindset, early problem identification, performance prediction, and screening for pathogenic behaviours. The 24-item Brunel Mood Scale (BRUMS; Terry, Lane, Lane, & Keohane, 1999) is yet to be validated or researched extensively in a Singaporean context, a...

Running in high heat and humidity increases psychophysiological strain, which typically impairs running performance. Listening to synchronous music has been shown to provide psychophysiological benefits, which may enhance running performance. The present randomized, crossover study examined effects of listening to synchronous music on psychophysiol...

In this paper, we propose a framework for the design of massive open online courses (MOOCs) based upon the principles of self-determination theory, which posits a relationship between intrinsic motivation and the basic psychological need for autonomy, competence, and relatedness. We also report the results of design-based research that evaluates th...

Music that is carefully selected to match the requirements of activities and the characteristics of individuals has been shown to produce significant impacts on performance enhancement (Priest et al., 2004). There is also evidence that music can enhance imagery (Grocke and Wigram, 2007), although few studies have investigated the effects of music o...

Mood profiling has been a popular assessment strategy since the 1970s, although little evidence exists of distinct mood profiles beyond the realm of sport and exercise. In the present study, we investigated clusters of mood profiles derived from the six subscales of the Brunel Mood Scale using the In The Mood website. Mood responses in three sample...
