I often resort to sleep myself. It tends to be a good reset for me and is quite helpful in improving my mood. Not sure it’s the healthiest of responses, but it works.
Someone suggested to me going for a walk might also help your mood.
What do you do to improve your mood?
I have a google doc titled “mean thoughts.” In it, i write about whatever has me in a bad mood. Afterward, I’m usually more calm, and then i can read back over those thoughts and translate them into actual identifiable problems and solutions.
play with my dogs
try hot or cold shower or baths
try something on tv or radio and ignore all the elements around me
sleep also helps me
I like to give my boyfriend massages. I also like to walk at night.
Never hurts to rub out that easy one of the day
I do a Word Seek puzzle that is good distraction and just enough excitement. It causes me to concentrate enough to get my mind going again.
When I don’t know how to be around someone, I found that by wishing them well, it helps to get me out that disconnection. Purely having that thought as opposed to mixed intentions.
I resort to sleep/nap also, @Bowens , it also works sonmetimes as an anxiety reset.
A sleep a walk a ride a snack a wank a pop some candy some coffee anything to shake up the brain lol
Usually it doesnt do much if its a depressive episode tho it just has to do its time and move on
I’ve been busy all day and it’s bedtime. I hate to wonder what I’ve been covering up. There’s monsters down there!
Theres a saying from hippocrates the great ancient doctor.
Its like: if youre in a bad mood, go for a walk. If youre still in a bad mood go for another.
Aparently walking is the best medicine
I usually sleep as well. Or play videogames. Today I did both. Another thing I do is talk to someone. Be it in group, case manager or family.
My ways to get out of a bad mood are three: 1) talk with my youngest sister, 2) take a walk in the park , 3) sleep.
I do guided imagery if I can’t calm that down. It really helps
Yesterday i Did positivity meditation. It helped.
Listen to music
Talk to my budgie or watch my goldfish swim
Thinking affect feeling and feeling affect behaviour.its the fundamental info for cbt.i m new on cbt and i can only advice study cbt.its look like serious theraphy.at least it worked for exercising.i m completely reset my whole life😄
That is a good question.
When I’m alone, I just try to distract myself. Music and crocheting. Music and cleaning up the house. Taking doggo for a walk. Browsing this forum. Looking at memes, trying to find funny things to boost my mood. Coffee. Or the opposite, chamomile lavender tea.
I say to myself, how would they feel if it was them? doesn’t really help though,
Going out, cup of tea and a diazepam is all i can think of, sometimes you just got to go through the motions though, sometimes is harder than others and i’m a pretty sensitive guy.
