Any tips for lifting yourself out of a bad mood?
I almost said cleaning but was afraid people would think I was nuts.I have a playlist specifically for singing at the top of my lungs to. It always seems to clear the cobwebs a little. Also cooking or cleaning; any sort of relatively mindless and mildly to moderately physical busy work, really. Weeding the garden, mowing the lawn.
Hence why you could perform surgery on any surface in my house at any time, lol.I think cleaning for me is very... "Problem: Solution". Like, I might be overwhelmed at work or other things may be very complicated and there's so much yuck in the world BUT I CAN GET THE DUST OFF THE CEILING FAN DANGIT.
That might be what I need. I've had a headache for the past four days from trying to hold back tears...just have to wait until I get home. Or I could burst into tears at my committee meeting this morning - that would be more interesting than anything on the agenda. Having someone to talk to would be nice, too.If it is a deeper sadness then it may be worth taking time to remove distractions, look inward, accept sadness as part of yourself and let it be for the moment. Cry, write down how you feel (and keep or burn it), and/or call a friend who is good at listening. It is important to let yourself be sad sometimes.
I appreciate the good thoughts.hope you feel lifted soon......
