Good mood: tips that are guaranteed to help
We all know these days when our mood is not the best. The night was too short, everything went wrong at work and somehow everyone really gets on our feet today. Unfortunately, too often we forget that it is we alone who can change our mood.
There are days when you would most like to stay in bed. You have slept poorly or too little and only stress is waiting for you in the office. So it’s no wonder that a mirror stares at you like “7 days of rain” and you growl out of your partner’s way this morning.
We all know such bad mood days, everyone has them. But we often dig deep into them for no reason, without even knowing in the end why we are actually in a bad mood. So, for example, oversleeping in the morning quickly becomes “well, the day can be something”.advertising
Such generalizations are particularly risky. Because one thing you should always keep in mind: there is no one in your head who directs your mood. You alone are the one who decides whether you are good or bad. And so you can do enough yourself if the signs point to storm:
Stand in front of the mirror and make faces. Laugh, stick your tongue out, etc. It will be difficult for you to remain in a bad mood. Incidentally, this also works great in the car in front of the red light, in a traffic jam or together with the passenger.
The reason is that your brain associates positive emotions with a smile and releases happiness hormones, the so-called endorphins , which provide a small but fine high in your body.
2.) STOP thoughts
Be sure to admonish yourself with a subconscious but clear “STOP!” Every time you think of a negative thought and don’t spin this thought any further.
Instead, think of something else, positive, instead of continuing to step up into your bad mood unnecessarily.
3.) You are the boss!
In case you should have forgotten: Always remember that you alone are the designer of your life . There is no one who controls your life for you.
YOU decide what mood you are in and YOU decide who or what may hurt you. It is you who decides whether you want to break up or grow in a situation. So avoid self-destructive thoughts!
4.) React yourself!
A proper workout will cause your body to release happiness hormones. You will feel a lot better afterwards.
So, get on your bike or off to the gym and really work out. Show your mood where the hammer is!
5.) Be thankful!
Make yourself aware of the reason for your bad mood and consider whether there might not be other people who are many times worse than you.
Something like this may always sound very wise from an outsider, but you will quickly find that you are – in most cases – doing pretty well.
6.) Ask for the meaning!
Think about whether there is any benefit in being in a bad mood. Does this undo the cause of your mood or improve anything?
No, definitely not. Not in the slightest. It’s just senselessly blown energy that gives you no benefit. On the contrary: in the time when you are romping around or in a bad mood, you could work much better to solve the problem.
7.) Drawing on experiences!
Remember situations in your life where you felt the same, e.g. with relationship problems & lovesickness, problems at the job, financial worries, etc. You have experienced most of these situations before and you probably thought at that time that you thought of them will perish.
So do you seriously want to make it so difficult for yourself again or has the past shown you that you are still there and that you could have had it a lot easier?
8.) Treat yourself!
Make you feel happy! Go shopping, treat yourself to an ice cream or enjoy a proper wellness day in the thermal bath, the sauna, at the massage therapist, hairdresser or beautician.
Just do what you feel like, whether with partners, friends or alone for yourself.
9.) Kissing is welcome!
If you have the opportunity to do so, try intimate kisses.
The happiness hormones released by your body make every little bit of bad mood fly away. And if kissing becomes more: even better.
Another advantage of this is that you realize that you are not alone and that you can share your problems with someone.
10.) Put something on your ears!
If possible, enjoy your favorite music. But be careful! Melancholic and sad music is absolutely taboo (always anyway!). And if everything does not help: Party hits and Co. will get you going again.
11.) Crap out!
Approaches in a bad mood are ideal for keeping order in your home.
Mucking out of basement, garage, etc. often has something of a mental mucking out: You separate yourself mentally from things that no longer add value to you.
12.) Sun & nature
Go out! The worst thing you can do in a bad mood is to lock yourself up at home and feel sorry for yourself.
Enjoy the sun and nature!
A good alternative for the cold months is a visit to the solarium (vitamin D!) Or to the sauna. Here you can switch off and just let your mind wander.
Spend time with your pet or hang out with friends or acquaintances who have a dog, for example.
Alternatively, you can drop in at the local animal shelter, where both humans and animals will be happy about your visit.
Dogs and cats in particular are very attentive observers and know how to skillfully distract us when we are doing badly.
14.) Maintain social contacts
If you’re not in a good mood, make sure you get out! Meet up with people who are good for you or talk to them on the phone.
So both sides benefit from it and sometimes it just helps to be able to pour out your heart somewhere.
15.) Go full throttle!
If everything stops working, do something that you rarely do or have never done before. Book a tandem jump from a height of 3,000 meters, go partying or speed dating (of course only as a single).
Prove to yourself that you are alive and that you have all the freedoms of the world!
Each of us is in a bad mood. Mostly for no reason, but often also because something happened that just pulls us down.
You should keep in mind that you control and control your mood alone. So be aware that nobody can force you into a bad mood.
Fight your bad mood by doing things that distract you and make you happy. Find contact with friends and acquaintances, do sports and treat yourself to something. Remember: YOU are the boss!
