Bad moods are apparently ordinarily related to one of these ten causes: Guilt, Small rejections, Outstanding tasks, Brooding, Low self-esteem, Fearing failure, Feeling disconnected, Unexpected disruptions out of your management, Hunger and Exhaustion. Knowing what is causing a bad mood will make it easier and quicker to get out of it.
Knowing the reason is of course only the beginning, and the next step can be easier or more challenging. Some of the ideas for addressing guilt, hunger, exhaustion and low self-esteem appeared to me to be in the ‘easier’ category:
1. Guilt – take some time to think about a way to apologise in a really meaningful way; then do the apology well.
2. Hunger – have a snack (a healthy snack would make sense, otherwise weight gain or health issues might impact self-esteem one day)
3. Exhaustion – Rest. If needed, rid your life of some responsibilities to urge the rest you need. The trick is of course to try and do this without feeling guilty; however guilt has been covered already. Rest and sleep are completely essential to good health, good mood and creativity.
4. Low self-esteem – think of it as a low self-esteem day; just like a foul hair day. And when you notice low self esteem creeping into your day, do something you are sensible at. Do it whenever you’ll be able to fit it in this day. It can be one thing that takes an hour or a lot of, like a work-out (which also releases those feel-good endorphins), or something that takes only minutes, like changing into clothes that you simply feel smart in, or making a phone decision to organise to attend one thing you may look forward to, or speak to someone who really appreciates you and makes you feel good about who you’re.
Being constantly in a bad mood is also a reason to hunt help from a gp, psychologist, psychiatrist or a natural healer. A good book written by somebody qualified or experienced on the subject, trying natural or different therapies, a change to your diet, or a change to different elements of your lifestyle might equally be useful. Some of the choices might not be accessible right away if they cost significant ongoing cash or are long, That is why any useful free recommendation on the internet may be valuable; which web log really seems to be one of those gems.
Some of the common reasons for a bad mood is also harder to deal with. But if you find yourself in a bad mood, it may be worth reflective if guilt, hunger, exhaustion, or low self-esteem may be the reason, and knowing there can be some simple ways that to deal with these. It may just lift a weight off your shoulders.
