How To Officially Handle Your Bad Mood

I’ve always been told that I come off as a happy, positive person, and I have to agree that I am. But don’t get me wrong, I definitely have my moments where I simply feel off. Sometimes I wake up just feeling crappy and go through the motions with no relief. It happens.

Here’s what you can do to actually deal with your bad mood and even feel better!

Make a Record of Your Bad Moods

Any time you feel yourself having one of the moments, it’s important to jot down exactly how you’re feeling. How would you technically describe your bad mood? Did something happen to cause it? This will help you acknowledge certain things that you may not have noticed before. Perhaps your bad mood has a simple explanation and solution, but you’ll never know until you actually try and figure it out.

Plan for Some Self-Care

No matter how busy you are, you need to make time for yourself. Being ‘busy’ is no longer an excuse. Your self-care is detrimental to relieving you of your bad mood. Once you figure out what caused you to have a bad mood, you’ll easily be able to find a simple self-care strategy to clear your mind and help you feel better.

Go With the Motions

There’s nothing wrong with being in a bad mood. We all have our moments, and allowing yourself to feel exactly what you feel is just as important as seeking some kind of relief. Some bad moods you just have to let run their course, and that’s OK. Just try not to be too hard on yourself.
