Simple methods against bad mood and dissatisfaction
Sometimes the simplest methods are most effective. Even against bad mood and dissatisfaction help amazingly simple, but effective measures.
What you can do against bad mood and dissatisfaction
Every morning when you wake up, make a note of three things to look forward to that day. If you find this difficult, look for something simple that will give you pleasure. For example, enjoying a cup of coffee or tea, playing with your pet, enjoying a sunny day, relaxing and listening to music, reading, or talking to a friend.
At the end of the day, every night, write three things that you found good that day on a piece of paper. It may have been something you are grateful for, such as your well-being and health, a friendship or a tasty meal. Or you could imagine the highlights of the day. Maybe you had an exceptionally nice experience or you were given a special compliment.
These measures may seem too trivial to you to be successful, but they are indeed great for helping you change your focus. As you are concentrating on the good things in your life, your negative and gloomy thoughts are faded out. And by looking forward to a few things today, you will perceive them much more intensely and, rather, appreciate them as they happen.
Happiness is usually not dependent on external circumstances
Happiness does not depend on external circumstances as widely believed. There are rich people who are deeply depressed and dissatisfied, and poor people who are happy and content. There are some who feel lonely, even though they are surrounded by a loving family, and others, live alone and feel blessed by the love in their lives. Some people have lost so much in their lives, yet they live joyfully every day because they do not pay attention to what they have lost, or to what they do not have, but to what they have.
It will not be long before you realize that these two simple methods improve your mood and your satisfaction the more you use them. If they seem appropriate to you, start by bringing a fresh breeze into your everyday life. For example, you could cite three arguments a day that will make you feel good, or answer the question every day about how you find yourself loved. So it’s not that hard to gain more joie de vivre, you just have to change your focus.
