Picture this - you wake up feeling a bit blah, and suddenly, it's like the whole world is against you. We've all been there, right?
But guess what? You have the power to turn that frown upside down and flip your mood around! (cheesy I know, but I HAD to do it)
Nobody likes feeling down. It’s hard to be productive, creative, or motivated when our mood is at rock bottom. Thankfully, there are easy strategies for choosing your mood to get back on track. In this blog post, we’ll explore 9 of them that are easy to incorporate into your daily life.
Definition of "Choosing Your Mood"
We’ve all experienced it - the negative thought spiral that happens when we’re feeling down or upset. We can get stuck in a funk, wallowing in our despair and unable to break free.
But here’s the thing: we don’t have to stay in that funk. We can actually choose our mood and focus on the positive instead of the negative.
It's like being the master of your emotional universe, steering your feelings in the direction you want.
Reasons why it's important to choose your mood
How you feel influences everything. Your thoughts, your actions, and even how you perceive the world around you.
How we feel affects how we think, which then influences how we act, which then influences how we feel. And the cycle continues.
That means if we’re feeling down, it can be hard to break free from that cycle.
However, if we focus on choosing a different mood that is more resourceful to us, this can not only help us feel better but also help us stay productive and motivated.
Choosing your mood may seem like a frivolous task, but it's actually one of the most important things you can do for yourself.
By consciously deciding to reset, and approach the day with positivity and optimism, you'll find that your thoughts and actions fall in line with that mindset. Suddenly, what seemed like a daunting task becomes more manageable and achievable.
When you choose your mood, you're taking control of your emotional state and dictating the narrative of your life.
Don't let outside circumstances dictate how you feel; take ownership of your inner world and watch as everything else falls into place.
9 Easy Strategies To Flip Your Mood Around
One of the best ways to boost your mood is to get moving! In fact, there's been so many studies that have proved exercise decreases symptoms of depression.
Exercise releases endorphins, which are hormones that cause us to feel energized and happy. Even just a few minutes of physical activity can make a huge difference in how you’re feeling.
Whether it's a brisk walk, a dance party in your living room, or some yoga to find your Zen, moving your body is like hitting the reset button on your mood.
Listen to Music
My personal favorite to reset my mood.
The power of music should never be underestimated. Listening to your favorite tunes can instantly put you in a better mood, no matter what kind of music it is. It can also help you to relax and de-stress.
Create a playlist that lifts your spirits and gets you grooving. Trust me, there's nothing like belting out your favorite tunes to make you feel like a rockstar!
Spend Time in Nature
Nature is the ultimate mood-booster.
In fact, studies have proven that just a one hour walk can increase our mental health significantly.
Sometimes the best thing for our mental health is to get outside and just be with nature. Spending time outdoors can help us appreciate the beauty of life and give us perspective on our problems. Plus, the fresh air and sunshine can do wonders for our mood.
Take a stroll in the park, hike up a mountain, or simply sit under a tree and feel the earth's energy embrace you. It's like a warm hug from Mother Nature herself.
Visualization is a powerful tool for changing your mindset.
Picture yourself feeling the emotion you wish to cultivate - joy, contentment, peace, excitement - then think of a time when you truly felt that emotion. Close your eyes and let the memory and emotion wash over you. Allow the emotion to grow and take over your entire being.
Doing this can help you reconnect with that elevated state of being and positively shift your mood.
It's like replaying your favorite scene from a movie, but you get to star in it!
Emotional Freedom Technique
Also known as “tapping,” the Emotional Freedom Technique is a powerful tool for managing and releasing emotions in a healthy way. By tapping on certain pressure points while focusing on an emotion or situation, we can quickly reduce stress or fear and increase our positive emotions.
Talk to a Friend or Loved One
Phone a friend! When we’re feeling down, talking to someone who loves and supports us can be incredibly helpful. We all need somebody to talk to - even just venting about our problems can help us get out of our funk and look at things from a different angle.
Call up your BFF, your mom, or even your pet - anyone who makes you feel loved and supported. A good chat can turn a frown into a smile faster than you can say, "Happiness!"

Watch or listen to something funny
Laughter is medicine for the soul.

Put on a comedy show, watch funny animal videos, or listen to a hilarious podcast.
Write in a Gratitude Journal
Writing down three things you’re grateful for each day is one of the best ways to maintain positivity and put things into perspective. This can help us appreciate our lives and see beyond our current struggles, allowing us to choose our mood and look on the bright side.
Grab a pen and jot down things you're grateful for. Big or small, it doesn't matter. Gratitude shifts your focus from what's lacking to what's abundant in your life.
To take it deeper, think about WHY you're grateful for this things. What do they do for you? How have they impacted your life?
