In a Bad Mood? Here's What to do

Sure, sometimes bad moods come out of nowhere. But more often than not, there is a deeper meaning behind them. Once you find out what's causing your bad mood, you are one step closer to moving past it.

Rejection

The truth is, rejection is hurtful. Especially if it comes from someone, you care about.

Even though it hurts, it's so important not to take it personally. There are two sides to every story. Even if you think you know it all, chances are you don't.

Have you ever had a friend or family member ignore your texts?

Take a minute to think about how it made you feel.

You can either jump to the worst case scenario and assume they must not like you anymore. 

Or you can remind yourself, their delayed response has nothing to do with you.

Maybe they lost their phone, or perhaps they’re driving. 

Low Self Esteem

Self-esteem is an interesting thing. Sometimes it's way up. And sometimes it's way down.

Like so many things in life, you can wait patiently for the feeling to pass. Or go the extra mile to get passed it.

You'd be surprised how many things you can do to increase your spirit on those low self-esteem days.

Maybe it's wearing your favorite shirt, or doing something special with your hair. Whatever makes you happy - just do it!

Hunger

Have you ever been so in the zone that the outside world pauses?

Yup, a good book or study session can do that. 

Now, when we get so in the zone, eating can completely slip our mind. 

For some, going just a few hours without eating can make their mood go from 0 - 100.

If that sounds like you, don't be afraid to set reminders on your phone to have a little snack. Learn More
