Turn that frown upside down!
As humans, we are able to feel a wide range of emotions daily. This means we can feel different emotions at any moment. We can easily go from sad to happy to frustrated all in the span of an hour. That being said, when we wake up or are faced with a bad mood, it can be harmful to our lives. A bad mood can make us unproductive and place us in a negative head space. However, there are some simple steps we can take when we find ourselves in a bad mood that can turn us all into positive Polly’s.
Feel The Emotion
The first step in conquering our emotions is to feel them. By allowing your mind to acknowledge the sadness you are feeling creates a sense of acceptance within yourself. By accepting your emotions you can make steps to move forward without giving in to the emotions.
Find The Lesson
This is a critical step in the process of getting out of a bad mood. Every situation or circumstance provides us with a lesson or greater understanding about ourselves. When we take a step back and view the circumstance from a broader perspective we can start to grow as humans. Oftentimes, it’s the consequences that we interpret as negative are the situations that lead to some of the best inner growth opportunities for ourselves.
Embrace All Your Emotions
Anger can often be refreshing, activating, and invigorating. All these emotions can propel you into action. This may mean you are more productive at work or more proactive in creating a life that is beyond your wildest dreams. When you allow yourself to fully feel your emotions and use those emotions to move you forward you can turn your mood around in no time.
