1. When You Smile, the Whole World Smiles
“Who said there’s nothing for free these days? The only inflation a smile ever faced was on the face. And they also increase your face-value.”Kim Myles
Do something that brings a smile to your face. Read your favorite book, watch a movie, or go to your ideal place, spend time with children, meditate; indulge yourself. There are many options depending on your taste. You only have to open up to let joy in. Your moods cannot change unless you are a willing participant. Happiness is a choice.
2. Dance to the Beat of Your Own Drum
“Music has charms to soothe a savage beast.”The Mourning Bride by William Congreve
Listening to music can have an immediate impact on your mood. Whether you are looking for peace of mind, motivation, upliftment, or to depress, it has the potential to influence or incite various emotions within us.
3. Don’t Be Frozen, Let it Go
Holding on to stressful thoughts keeps you in a negative state. It’s impossible to improve your mood for the better while dwelling on things which make you feel down. Releasing unproductive ideas, habits, or patterns is crucial to usher fresh ones in.
4. Wax on, Wax off
Activities such as walking; jogging, dancing, or sports can improve your mood. Working out can help you work your way out of a bad mood. Walking 10-30 minutes/3 times a week can benefit your moods, as well as your mental health.
5. Can We Talk?
Communicating your thoughts aloud to someone can be beneficial. If you choose to ruminate in a negative mood, it makes it difficult for you to reach out to others. Sometimes discussing what’s on your mind with another can bring a different perspective.
Some individuals may have the ability to improve your mood just by speaking with them. If there is something troubling you, it’s beneficial to share. You may not want to burden others with your problems. But you don’t want to be a problem to others because of what’s burdening you. Getting things “off your chest” clears the way for you to feel better and be at your best. When you lighten your load, it lightens your mood.
6. Dive in
“The mind is like water. When its turbulent, it’s difficult to see. When it’s calm, everything becomes clear.”Prasad Mahes
