CHANGE YOUR WAYS | GETTING OVER A BAD MOOD

Saturday, 18 November 2017


A completely different post today, I am going to talk about a couple of tips to help you shift that bad mood during the day. This is real guy's trust me! 

I will admit that I am one of those girls who can sometimes suffer with waking up in a foul mood and I have no idea where it has come from. Unfortunately it is just one of those things.

It has taken me a hell of a long time to figure out ways of distracting myself from those nasty mood swings, and now that I am starting to find them out I thought it would be a great time to tell you about them especially as we are heading into the those dark nights and winter days. You may not find these to help but they are there to give a try if you want. I am trying my hardest to remember that it is just a bad mood sometimes and that is it and there is no need for me to carry that bad mood throughout the day, because if you think about it, there is nothing worse than letting someone else see you in that way as it could also effect their day too, so I'm learning to just smile and crack on with it.

But if you need a bit of help, then give these little tips a try!!

Talk to someone

This could be anyone; a friend, colleague, partner, parent or even somebody new in your path. When I am at work sometimes I find myself really irritated or frustrated and I just don't know why. I have a couple of people I can go and talk to at work that simply make me laugh and instantly take my mood away or even make me realise that whatever negative thoughts I am thinking, they are just not worth it. Why would I want to ruin a whole day being moody and negative when I can have a great day surrounded by friends and simply enjoying what is around me.

Take 5 and listen to music

Most people have a song that suits their mood, well I know I certainly do but just recently I have created a playlist on Spotify of songs that seem to help me relax and just zone out for a little bit and I honestly feel like this helps. I find that slow piano music helps me out or slow songs from movie soundtracks help. 
Just find a song that you feel your happiest to when listening to and keep that in mind if you feel a bit down in the dumps, it is sure to brighten your mood.

Write it out

This is also a new one for me, but my god has this helped me out. Have a notepad near you, weather that's at work, your bedside table, in the kitchen, in your handbag. Basically anywhere that you want. If your feeling down, angry, irritated whatever your feeling right at that moment write it down in a notepad, and keep it to yourself. You can always rip it up after or keep it that's up to you, but you need a way of releasing that negative energy and I have found this to be a great help to me.

Organise your favourite space in your home

This might sound like an unusual thing to do but again it's another way I find to cheer myself. I have a couple of favourite spaces in my home, those being my dressing room and my bedroom. When I'm feeling like the day isn't working in my favour or just feel pretty crap I find myself getting up and re-organising my dressing room around or having a bit of a declutter. I feel like it helps to clear my head and make a fresh start during the day, and getting rid of any negative energy in that particular space.

Treat yourself

It doesn't have to be expensive at all, but just treating yourself to something new can help lift your spirits a bit. Weather that be a new piece of make up, new item of clothing, something to do with your favourite hobby, something for your house, even your favourite food or drink. It could be anything. We all like to receive presents every now and then so why not go and pick something up for yourself. I love it when I can pick out some new make up or a new item of clothing, it boots my confidence and makes me feel a little happier. It is a simple little trick if you've got a spare bit of cash available.

Walk if off

You've probably heard a lot of people say this is a good way of calming yourself down or a great way of relaxing. I don't do this one very often but sometimes I have had to literally walk away from several things that put me in a foul mood. I have had times where I have slammed the front door and just walked out of the house not knowing where I was going to go, but I ended up just going for a short walk around my village. I have found that putting my headphones in walking to some music just helps clear my mind and calms me down and just take some time away from any issues I might be thinking about.

I could put in a few others but I'm still trying those tips out to see how they work for me, but for now I will leave you with these ideas that I find useful. I hope they help you in some way!!

Let me know if you have any tips too I would love to learn new ways to shift that bad mood!
