    "Tragedy + Time = Comedy" - Woody Allen
    Sometimes you simply have to weather the storm. It's impossible to stay happy all of the time. When I get blindsided the first thing I tell myself is; "This time next year you will be laughing at this."
    That statement alone takes me from (present tense) to imagining a (future) beyond the mood or pain I feel right now. It's my way of reminding myself that (this) is temporary.
    The next thing I do is take a "mental vacation". Unplug from TV, phones, laptop, and social media. Go to the gym and work out while listening to music from my iPod. Afterwards I might treat myself to a favorite food or go check out a movie alone. (preferably a comedy or escapism type of movie).
    When I get home I read an uplifting book or positive motivation book until I dose off to sleep. Odds are once you wake up you'll be able to plan how you want to move forward one step at a time.
    Taking action is the only cure I know of for depression. However before most of us can do that we need a "time out". That is where the gym, a walk, listening to music, going to see a movie, and taking a nap come into play. It's important to put things in perspective by realizing whatever you're going through is just a slice of your life and not the whole cake.

    First of all, don't give into being in a bad mood. It will take over and negativity in your body will be released. Once that happens, it's much harder to be happy. Just remember it will pass, and there will be better days ahead. We all have problems, or situations that cause us to feel unhappy sometimes. Focus on the solution not on the problem. Listen to music, slowly take a couple of deep breaths, keep busy with a hobby, exercise, talk  to someone, watch a funny movie, laugh, cook something you really like. (Don't use anymore sad faces...that just emphasizes your sadness.) Good luck!

    Understand that all moods depend on your "current thoughts". Change the thoughts and the mood will change automatically. We all create our own worlds with our thoughts and feelings. If you don't like the world that you have created, you can always change it with better thoughts. If a problem has caused the bad mood, then seek the correct solution and put it into action as soon as possible. And lastly, if not first, keep your thoughts on God. "Thou will keep thee in perfect peace who's mind is stayed on thee". Whatever you are thinking is about the world, which is an illusion. If you shift you attention to the good or God within, the world illusion disappears. You have to make a choice, laughter or tears. http://srit.hubpages.com/hub/Can-you-be-happy-now

    An interesting question I am sure most of us can relate to such moments,  when feeling  in such moods the best is to smile and get outside go for a walk and clear your mind. You will find that fresh air makes you feel in a much better mood. Think positive  and laugh about something
