Here's the quick fix mood elevator you need.
Have you ever been in a crappy mood and thought that you’d never get out of it? It can be challenging to go from being in a foul mood to feeling happy and light again.
Being in a bad mood isn’t fun. It doesn’t just affect your emotions — you can feel a bad mood in your body, your outlook on life, and it even can change the way you see the people in your life. Jobs have been lost, relationships damaged, and self-esteem weakened all due to someone not feeling good about themselves and the world.
Negative emotions are strong and it can be hard to take the power away from them. No one wants to feel as if there’s a dark cloud hovering over their head; it’s certainly not something that people seek out.
Have you ever heard anyone say, “I’m in too good a mood... I better do something to turn this smile into a frown”? No, probably not. You can try to will yourself into a better mood and focus on the more positive aspects of your life, or you could do something that you love that’s always worked in the past.
Sometimes, the best plan of action is to fully experience the bad mood. Cry, shout, punch the walls — anything that gets all that negative energy out of your system. Some people like to channel their bad mood into doing something creative and using their anger or sadness as a catalyst to create a piece of art.
Everyone has their own method of boosting their mood, and what works for you may not necessarily work for someone else.
Each of the zodiac signs has their own quick fix, and knowing which is the one most likely to assist you in getting over a bad mood is extremely beneficial. Here’s the quickest way to boost your mood based on your zodiac sign.
The best way for you to get a mood boost is to go play a game of touch football or go for a swim. If you engage in an activity that's intense enough to get your blood pumping and your endorphins kicking it, it will get your mind off what was putting you in a bad mood. You know you always feel better after a workout.
I know you don't have to be told twice to go ahead and treat yourself to an expensive meal or go to the spa and have the full treatment. Pampering is often good for the soul and, in your case, it's a miracle cure for your bad mood.
You can sometimes be moody and the best way for you to get out of your bad mood is to go out and socialize. You love people and being around them helps to stimulate you and get you feeling good again.
No matter how old you are, you're an old soul and you can get nostalgic from time to time, even if the time you're nostalgic for was only a few years ago. You're comfortable with all of your emotions, so remembering how you were happy once will help you to see that happiness is something you can achieve once again.
You enjoy looking so sharp that all eyes fall on you. When other people look at you positively, it makes you feel good. Buy yourself a new outfit, get your hair done, make sure your mani/pedi is on point. You'll feel good in no time.
You're never happier than when you've fixed something that leaves everyone else stumped. Find that object or problem that you've put off dealing with and go to town. You'll feel great once you've fixed it and you'll also enjoy how impressed everyone else will be.
You don't like being in a bad mood, so anything that can get you out of it is awesome. It's difficult to stay in a bad mood when you're laughing, so go to YouTube and find some cat videos or turn on Comedy Central — anything that's funny and will make you laugh.
If you have a project that you've been wanting to do but haven't felt as if you can give it all your attention, start it now. When you get focused, you get happy — it's an intense happiness but it's still happiness.
Talking to an older person will help put your troubles into perspective and you'll feel grateful for how good you have it. Plus, they're sure to share some of the wisdom they've gained over the years.
When you need a mood elevator, try making a detailed plan that includes how you'll make room for advancement in your life. When you prioritize what's important for you to have the kind of life you want, you start to feel hopeful and happy. Make sure to include your achievements so far and what things you feel grateful for.
You're constantly working to make life better for your fellow humans, but sometimes you need to do something for yourself. When you go camping in the woods or walking on the beach, you'll be able to catch a breath and decompress. By hearing birds singing, smelling the wonderful smells of nature, and feeling the ocean on your feet, you'll start to feel happier in no time.
When you tell a stranger "Good morning" or give your leftover food to a homeless person, you'll start to feel better. Kindness doesn't just help the recipient, it helps the giver. Everybody wants to be the kind of person who helps others, and when you confirm that you are one of those people, you'll feel better and happier.
