Are you in a bad mood right now and you want to improve it or were you recently in a very bad mood? Or maybe, you have a pile of homework but you just can’t get it done because of this mood.
It’s true that you can sometimes feel at the mercy of your feelings. However, you should realize that moods are not things that just happen to you or anyone else to accept. In fact, you can influence and change them, very easily in some cases.
First, you need to imagine the mood that is best suited for your situation. After which, don’t waste any more time but get into that mood. As long as your thoughts are positive, focusing on the following will help you reset your mood:
First, identify what you want to do and what you must do. For instance, you might want to do your studies fast and well before visiting your friends later.
Nothing influences your mood more than the environment. So, put yourself in the right place. For instance, if you need to study, then you should find a table and a chair or a desk in a quiet room instead of sitting in an open area such as at the coffee shop where you would be exposed to a lot of distractions.
The right person
Identify a particular classmate or a friend who can help you feel the way you’re supposed to. If you want to study, then a focused classmate would be your best companion instead of a chatty friend.
Music is actually among the most powerful influences on our mood for the obvious reasons that it’s all about communicating and inspiring emotion. So, create relevant playlists that will communicate and inspire the most helpful, powerful and positive moods for your life.
The right posture has a way of creating the best mood. For instance, if you want to study, you should try some exercises that will help you focus on your physical posture such as yoga. On the other hand, if you’re preparing to go to bed, then you should do some deep breathing, gentle stretching or any other soothing activity.
You can also encourage yourself with self-talk because it’s actually a way of using your thoughts to influence your mood. You can tell yourself, “I can do this!” or “Ok, let’s get this done right now”, and in that way, you’ll have used self-talk, which can easily get you into the right mood for a situation. Again, self-talk will go beyond creating the right mindset that supports mood, it will also help you a great deal in keeping a mood going.
