When you are are feeling down, what do you do to pick yourself up?
turn my radio up, open the windows, and clean my house from top to bottom.
I definitely make a great snack, sit down throw the blanket on top of me, and put in a funny movie, oh yeah and pop open a soda. If I'm not at home, I usually find someone to talk collectibles with or selling at flea markets and communicating with people help release my stresses.
When in a bad mood, always change your physiology. Move around, try to empty your mind and observe your surroundings. Realize that the only thing essential to your happiness is yourself. If you shut everything out you have complete control over yourself. Also, I love the sun. When the sun is out it's hard to get in a bad mood.
Many things- coping skills they are called
making a gratitude list
calling a friend
reading the bible or a positive book like "Battlefield of the Mind" which helps you replace negative thoughts with positive ones.
that is a great answer,maybe because that's what I do when I'm in a bad mood. I can add going to have a nap.Do anything but the ironing!
I am in a permanent bad mood (grieving)so I forgot how I do these things.
Thanks for reminding me.
before，when i was sad, i will went to a market and buy a lot of food,and ate it up,but i found that will make me fatter,and i want to keep slim,so now,when there is something sad happen, i will leave myself alone,walking on the road,listening to light music,or thinking something else, that i will be happy again ,i can forget the sadness soon,may be you can have a try.or you can write the sad thing down ,and then cross it ,some of my friends do this .
Music and laughter are Gods gifts...well, there's sex, too, but sex is not always convenient. When I feel my attitude slipping and I need an attitude adjustment I throw on some Aretha Franklin and sing and dance my little heart out!
Without a doubt it's got to be old school - the '70s, the stuff you can actually understand and sing to. If that doesn't work - of course it always does, then there's always humor and Jim Gaffigan. He makes me laugh so hard that I have to hit the mute button.
I do aerobic exercise which generates those feel-good hormones call endorphins.
Make a 'mood anchor' for yourself. When you are feeling happy and have some time to yourself, close your eyes, breathe deep, and smile. Feel your smile moving inward toward your heart. As you do this, gently press your thumb and middle finger together. You only have to do it for a little bit.
What will happen, is your body will start to associate the movement of pressing your thumb and middle finger with happiness. Then, if you need a boost, just repeat the action and try to feel that same feeling. It can work wonders.
Music always snaps me into a better mood. Or humming a tune that makes me happy.
Call a close friend you have not talked to for awhile . Then get out and do some yard work or walk or even turn on some music and clean a little . It feel good to get something done/
Going on holiday. I'm like a little kid at Christmas, the packing, the airport, landing and then chillin by the pool. Yeah...
Listen to a good song, watch a comedy, or meet with your friends to have coffee or a drink. That should work!
"How To Get in A Good Mood"
External: Fix whatever is f**kg you over in life.
Internal: Eat something to raise blood sugar.
I do go for a work, exercise or playing some outdoor sports with friends.. but every time its not possible so i stay in a room listening to music to give rest to brain waves.. as a health counselor, i want to suggest something to teens, do not go for junk food, they are instant mood swinger instantly but for short period, they can wing your mood from sad to good but youth eat a lot whenever they are depress.. and it has became an habit now among most of them.. i just want to say one thing, do not over eat when you are depress, find something else to do...
Hmmm..I gotta tell you, Kimberly, you're fantastic, and the perfect choices you've suggested are, collectively, the best way to go, without a doubt, except for one. and that's watching your avatar change - and today's, by the way is way cool...thanks...you are, without a doubt, a streaming contact with joy for me, always...thank you so much for that, my dearest, bestest friend....
** Positive Thinking.
** Remembering good times (such memories make me smile)
** Visit the Fridge.... for some ice cream or whatever tickles my fancy.
#Quote "You can change a sad emotion immediately, by thinking of something joyful, or singing a song, or remembering a happy experience."
I watch reality tv.No matter how down you are,sh*t always seems much worse on tv so you kinda start thinking this aint too bad haha
turn on satellite radio...tune it to some good ole' rock n roll...log onto HP and see what goldengurrrl is up to...
intense retail therapy always cheers me up. Unfortunately, then I get depressed with how much stuff I own!
being active, walking or jogging will do If I can't go to the gym or do yoga. music makes me happy too. singing my heart out makes me ecstatic!
