How To Feel Better When Mood Is Bad

Feeling cynical?

Sometimes the mind does not do what is best for us. There is a strange amalgam of chemistry, biology, physics, and spirit that powers the gray matter that resides in the hollowed out space of our skull. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like Mother Nature, or God, or evolution (take your pick) has gotten it setup quite right yet. There are days where the mood generated by your mind is not the mood you need or want in your heart and soul.

Here comes some unrelated links to my hubs. There is one about the current McDonald's Happy Meal toy. I have another one about 529 plan contributions limits. Then there is that one I wrote about AP Style writing.

When that happens you have three choices. You can use the touchy, happy, feeley, solution of breathing deeply, or trying to thing happy thoughts. (This is a giant FAIL anytime you are feeling cynical because even thinking that it would work requires not being cynical.)

Stop what you're doing and come see a review of Capital One rewards credit card catalog.

You can try medications, but using drugs to improve mood seems like a bit of overkill when you are just having an off day.

And finally, you can go with it. That's what were doing here. I have a giant cynical grumpy mood going on, so I could go on forever. But, for our purposes here, I am overly cynical about the lies search engines keep saying to get us to forget how simplistic and easily duped they are.

Google says that it understands synonyms? Oh, really? Then why do searches for Mom and Mother (with any other keywords of your choosing) bring up totally different results? Is there an easier synonym to understand on the whole planet?!?!

So, I'm building a cynical hub that I will now fill with widgets that fill out the content for me so that I can get some good links without any effort. I may even do several more, we'll see how this one makes me feel first.

Who likes good movies for children? I sure do.

      I am not sure whether it has to do with the monthly periods of women but really I am one of those people who go through bad moods and depression either before or after my 'red dates'. Maybe its some hormonal imbalance or something. What I do is get myself absorbed in so many tasks so by night time I could easily sleep and escape from my bad thoughts.

      This one made me laugh. I've been lying in bed (waking too early) wondering how to write a hub that I could use to add loads of links. You've already thought of a good one.
