How to Get Over Those Slumpy Moods
For some people, they’re having ‘one of those days’ every day. It’s a phenomenon they manage to get through the day when they’re battling their inner self.
Although I’m a firm believer that everyone is allowed to get angry and sad, it shouldn’t affect how your day’s mapped out, and even your life choices.
With that being said, here are some productive ways to get over a slumpy mood.
Find Your Quick Fix
There are ways and means to uplift yourself by indulging in something you love.
Here are a few common solutions:
- Listen to your favourite song
- Scroll through past pictures on your phone to your favourites
- Treat yourself to your favourite coffee
- Take a 5-minute walk around the block
- Google ‘funny jokes’
- Text a loved one
- Remind yourself of how great your life is
Find your quick fix to happiness and start with this to beat the blues.
Establish Why You’re In A Bad Mood
I’m a positive thinker; you won’t see me complaining about being stuck in traffic, but using it as a chance to rock out to my favorite tunes.
Ask yourself: Why am I in a bad mood? Replay the past few hours to establish what made you feel this way. Most times it’s because of other people, or something has gone wrong at work. But, it’s up to you how you let that affect your day.
Then ask yourself: What can I do to make the situation better? Most times, it’s to take it on the chin and move on and stop feeling sorry for yourself.
Now Take Responsibility For Your Life
Don’t dwell on things which keep turning your mood upside down… do something about it!
You know, it’s not compulsory to hate your job just because everyone else does. If you’re overcome with dread on a Monday morning, then it’s time to make a change.
You deserve to be happy, and that means owning up to your bad mood being caused by you. Hate your job? Search for another. Not happy with your body? Hit the gym. In a hopeless relationship? Communicate with your partner.
Things don’t just get solved by themselves, you have to take responsibility for your own happiness and wellbeing.
