International sporting events have an influence on our appreciation of well-being International sporting events have an influence on our appreciation of well-being
Yann Dalon

In an event such as the Soccer World Cup, the phenomenon of increased identification with the team and greater national pride has been referred to as the “feel-good effect at mega sports events“. Such events facilitate social connections and have an influence on our emotions: they are sources of joy and frustration, anger and pride, depression and enthusiasm; and ultimately affect what psychologist call the “subjective well-being” – which is, as a key concept in positive psychology, our own appreciation of one’s life in global terms.

For man engaged in bromance-type relationship, homosocial relationships let them experience an elevated emotional stability, enhanced emotional disclosure, social fulfilment, and better conflict resolution, compared to the emotional lives they shared with girlfriends.Bromance is essentially when man openly pronounce love for their bromances and engage in highly intimate behaviors, both emotionally and physically in same sex friendships, "it" happens mainly during social activities such as playing sports, drinking, fixing things or gambling.

The bromance is a very much a concept of the 21st century. It gained ground when the idea of friendships between both heterosexual and homosexual emerged (in response to the mass cultural awareness of homosexuality, especially among Western populations) and when the shadow of guilt and peer ridicule gradually disappeared.

Will the digital transformation liberate humanity or tether us with virtual chains? Do communicative technologies fire our imaginations or dull our senses? Do social media nurture community or intensify our isolation, expand our intellectual faculties or wither our capacity for reflection, make us better citizens or more efficient consumers? Have we become a nation of skimmers, staying in the shallows of incessant stimulation, or are we evolving into expert synthesizers and multitaskers, smarter than ever before?
