5 Simple Techniques To Get Out Of A Bad Mood In Under 5 Minutes
Doing something outside
Researchers out of one UK university discovered that going for a walk outside in a 'nature' setting was just as effective as antidepressants and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) treatment programs.
'Green exercise,' such as outings in the country or a park, are especially effective in abolishing bad moods.
Talk yourself up; use positive affirmations
One of the toughest things we ever have to do is silence that incredibly negative inner dialogue that is constantly churning in our heads. Recognize that we can fight this negative voice with a positive one.
Use phrases like:
- I will succeed in my endeavors because I have succeeded before
- I am a smart person who is fully capable of completing all of my work today
- Today I will break down barriers and overcome obstacles
- Any mistakes that I make today will help me succeed in the future
