It’s 8.30 pm in the clock when I writing this in my diary. And my mother will be typing this later for me. Today morning when I woke, my eyes refused to open. I did have a slight pain in my left eye for two days but today was the worst day.
I couldn’t blink my eye and the pain was unbearable. So I took a sick leave from the office and went for an eye checkup. It’s some kind of an eye infection. I’ve slept for the entire day. The eye is still swollen and I can’t look at the laptop screen.
My mother knew I was upset because I couldn’t face the screen. So she offered her helping hand as she did not want my Blog Marathon to be affected.
That very moment my mood was uplifted and I started writing today’s blog on how to change your mood instantly so that you also can learn the same art.
Today, it was because of my mother I was able to change my mood instantly. One more reason was an email (I checked around 8.15 pm on my laptop)- that said my article was published today on a website. This was a guest post blog that I had written a few days ago and today it’s live on their website. Click here to read the blog.
I’m so grateful and happy for this. And I’m glad I read that email (almost instinctively )otherwise since morning I haven’t checked my phone at all.
Before I extend the introduction let me stop here and without any ado give you a few tips on how to change your mood instantly.
Change your physiology
Your posture, the way you sit, stand and walk plays a vital role in changing your mood.
When you sit with your chin in your palms, you’re bound to feel gloomy. Or even when you’re lazying in your bed for no reason you feel diffident.
On the contrary, examine your mood when you’re sitting up erect, or walking with your head up. Aren’t you more confident and happy?
Whenever you feel a little low, just get up from your chair in the office or home and walk for a while. This uplifts your mind and body supplying energy to both.
And hence, changing your mood to a great extent.
2. Change your psychology
How to change your mood instantly, is completely in your hands. You have to prepare your brain for the same.
You need to choose between the two states of mind. Whether you want to continue sobbing or quickly forget about it and play around happily.
If I would have mourned over my eye pain and slept for the rest of the day, it would have affected my blog marathon and as a result, I would be unhappy for the rest of the day.
So, you need to set your psychology right to keep yourself uplifted always. Always remember one thing – Nobody should be responsible to uplift your mood except for you. This eliminates dependency.
3. Shift your focus
Focusing on the dark part of the day will only ruin your mood more. Then why not shift your focus from the bad to the good?
Shifting your focus will fasten your mood changing process and you’ll train your mind to the brighter side of everything.
4. Do something nice for somebody else
You and I are often self-centred about our troubles. But when you see your sufferings are far less than that of others, you feel good about it.
Similarly, when you go out of your way and help people in need you start feeling good about yourself.
Your mood changes almost instantly after you’ve done something good for someone else.
Maybe it is helping a blind man cross the road or helping your mother in the kitchen. In both the scenario you’re the reason for someone’s happiness. And in return, that’s the reason for your happiness.
5. Laugh at yourself
I’m not even kidding when I say laugh at yourself. When I feel low about the office environment, I crack jokes on myself and laugh aloud. I laugh and make others laugh along with me.
By doing this, my focus is shifted from the bad to the good. Laughter collaborates your mind and body. It facilitates bonding across a group of people. Laughter lowers anxiety, releases tension, and improves your mood.
So, laugh it out. Your mood is bound to change.
I hope you liked today’s blog. I would like to thank my mother for delivering this one successfully. Without her, it wasn’t possible.
