A period of time

If you won a prize at a competition, you will be happy. You will remain happy for a period of time then you will be normal.

If you lost a sum of 1000$ in the street (keeping in mind you are not a millionaire), you will be disturbed. You will remain disturbed for a period of time then you will be normal again.

If your neighbor's kid broke you car window, you will get angry. You will remain angry for a period of time then you will be normal.

If you listen to a classical music, your right brain will take the lead. You will remain in a creative and simple and romantic and strategic and out of the box mode for a period of time then you will be normal again.

If you spend 2 hours writing a C# program, then your left brain will get the lead. You will remain in a focused and analytical and hunger-for-detail mode for a period of time then you will be normal again.


Now compare all periods above. Some of them are great to make decisions at, some of them are really bad. Some of them rarely happens and when they happen we must use them to do something remarkable.

Is there a name for this period of time? If not choose one. Because I did.
