I felt down while taking a shower and reminded myself of this. I attempted it and felt better almost immediately. Definitely within 10 seconds.
Perhaps it's a placebo; I expected this outcome (me shifting towards more positive emotions) and therefore my body shifted towards more positive emotions. Perhaps it's actually effective this quickly.
However, placebo or not, I don't think it matters. My mood did (subjectively) improve.
(To my future self)
I should do some research into this.
