6 Quick Fixes For A Bad Mood

bad mood

I can get moody – let me tell you.

I know that you have all experienced it from time to time.

I’ve had to learn that a bad mood does not have to mean a bad day, and I have also learned that a bad mood can be changed.

Sometimes we enter our day and something sets us off, we hear bad news, or encounter problems that seem impossible to fix. These events trigger our stress hormones, and leave us feeling down in the dumps.

Here are 6 quick fixes to get a handle on your bad mood. 

1. TAKE A NAP

It may sound silly, but it works. It doesn’t matter what time of the day it is. If you have the opportunity to take a nap during the day (especially if you are in a bad mood) – do it. Taking a nap helps you break the negative thought patterns that are going on in your mind. When you wake up, you feel refreshed, and are then able to face your day from a renewed perspective.

2. TAKE A SHOWER OR A BATH

Water is very calming. There is something about being in a bathtub or a shower that just washes all your cares away. As a matter of fact, when you are in the shower – imagine that every negative emotions is being washed away. When you are done you will feel calm and soothed, and you can approach your day again from that new feeling place.

3. LISTEN TO MUSIC

There are few things that soothe like music does. Put on a relaxing tune, and embody the feeling of the music. Music soothes the soul.

4. WRITE ABOUT IT

Sometimes we find ourselves in a bad mood because we can’t express what we need to express. Things stay pent up inside and we feel that we have no way to let it out. When you feel like that, a good thing to do would be to write about it. Get your journal or just a piece of paper and write down why you are feeling the way that you do. This will help you get those negative emotions out and not harbor them in your heart.

5. TALK ABOUT IT WITH A TRUSTED FRIEND

Notice that I said, “a trusted friend”. By trusted, I mean someone who is not going to perpetuate the negative emotions that you are feeling. The trusted friend should be someone who is a good listener, grounded, and someone who is able to give you suggestions on how to better cope with your emotions. Sometimes, just expressing yourself makes all the difference in the world.

6. WALK AWAY

Sometimes you just need to walk away. Remove yourself from the situation completely if you can. Get out of the house – if that is where your bad mood started. Walk away from your desk – if you are at work and you feel overwhelmed. Remove yourself from a heated debate – if you notice that the argument is taking a toll on you.

You don’t have to attend every argument you are invited to. {Unknown}.

Day 6: Living From The Heart

Today Has Been Bizarre

For those of you who are following my posts for this 30 day challenge, you probably know that I haven’t been able to fall asleep for the past 5 days. My body said to me today, “good night”, and laid itself down to rest without my consent. It’s not that I wasn’t exhausted from being up staring at the ceiling for the past 5 days, it’s just that my body doesn’t seem to agree with the time periods that I would like to go to sleep.

On top of my fickle a** body not falling to sleep when I want it to, it also went HAM on me today. I mean my body feels like it’s going to war with itself. I feel like I have a fever, mixed with dizziness, mixed with inner turmoil. I don’t know what is going on. This year I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, but I think that it’s more than that.

Mind vs. Body

For some reason my body is not agreeing with my mind, and my personality and life is stuck in the middle of it. If I told you that I feel like electricity is being passed through my body, would you believe me? If I told you that I can feel energy in my home that is not very nice, would you believe me? If I told you that I can sense things deeply, would you believe me?

I think in some way life is trying to reveal my gifts to me, but my mind and body is rejecting this strange energy. I don’t know if spirits are trying to contact me, if the devil is trying to eat me alive, or if my senses are just extra sensitive. Whatever this strange energy is… I wish it would go away.

secret

I feel like I am possessed by something sometimes.

I’ve been having dreams that predicted things that were going to happen throughout my day, I can tell what some people are going to say before they say it, I get glimpses of things and then all of a sudden that same thing will show up on the TV. I am obviously picking up on something. The only thing is… I don’t think I want to anymore. LOL. I just want to go back to my normal life when all of this perception and hypersensitivity didn’t mean a thing to me. I can also feel a lot of pressure over the bridge of my nose. It’s just bizarre. I don’t know how to explain it or get rid of it. I just wish it would go away.

Dear God – Please Make It Just Go Away

When I woke up, after hours of sleep, I started cleaning. I was in a really really bad mood though. Almost like something was taking over me. I can’t explain it. I was dragging my feet around, reluctantly putting stuff back in its proper place, and whining the entire time.

I decided that if I was going to stop the downward spiral of emotions I was going to have to make a conscious decision to try to get in a better mood.

After an hour or so, I made love to my man and some of the tension went away. My body was obviously craving some kind of physical connection. It helped a lot with the mood.

Although I am not 100% right now, I am sure that with doing some research, making a conscious decision to feel better, and taking things step by step I will get better.
