How to improve my mood
We all want to improve our moods and feel better but sadly for most of us this is just a distant wish. Most people have been living miserable lives, experiencing bad moods and only feeling happy once in a while even though they really want to be happy all the time.
People might be feeling bad because they are too lazy to take actions to improve their mood or they might be completely clueless of what should be done in order for their moods to improve.
In this article I will provide you with methods that can help you improve your mood and live a happier life.
If you want to improve your mood then you must know why you feel bad
1+1 = 11
This equation will sound funny to a mathematician but not to a psychologist. If you felt angry and stressed in the same time then the resulting emotion won’t be anger plus stress but it will be a really horrible feeling that you can hardly tolerate.
One of the major reasons that prevents people from experiencing a Good mood is the accumulated effect of emotions where the result of two or more bad feelings become really horrible.
You might be thinking that two separate events must happen on the same day in order for both of them together to generate two different bad moods but do you know that lots of people wake up with some carried over bad feelings?? (see Feeling bad when waking up)
Just take a look at the following examples:
I could give hundreds of examples but I am sure the concept is now clear. Lots of us already carry bad emotions before they even start their day and that’s why whenever they encounter a situation that induces another bad emotion they feel really bad.
In my book, The ultimate guide to getting over depression I explained how ignoring your problems and allowing them to accumulate can be the primary cause of depression in many cases.
The first step to improve your mood is to get rid of all of the previously accumulated bad emotions so that you become more tolerant.
Quick fixes that can improve your mood
There are lots of quick fixes that can be used to improve the mood but if not accompanied with long term plans that can solve the problems that are currently bothering you then their effect will only be temporary and your bad mood will soon return again.
You must have a long term plan for dealing with all the chronic problems that are resulting in your accumulated bad moods and while doing so you can use any of the following fixes to get a quick but temporary mood lift:
Final words about improving your mood
Quick fixes never last and some of them are really unhealthy like emotional eating, alcohol and various drugs.
Some people live their lives feeling bad all the time because they depend heavily on quick fixes that improves their moods for a short while then makes them feel way worse later on.
If you want a permanent improvement in your mood then you must make permanent changes to your life instead of using quick fixes.
