Our mind flows through a rhythm of cheerful as well as unhappy moments. We deal with several thoughts, circumstances, and energies day-to-day. Hence, here are some ideas to trick our minds and help improve our mood instantly.
Listening to Your Favorite Songs
Some songs just clicks in our head and never leaves at least for good amount of hours. Indeed, creating a playlist full of songs one requires when needed, is a perk. Music sparks our minds with love, happiness, and joyful memories. Hence, just put the headphones on and cheer yourself on some happy tunes.
Additionally, one may listen to a guided meditation playlists. Just by listening to 10 minutes of affirmations can help us improve our ego and self-worth.
Pick a Pen and a Paper
Pick a piece of paper and declutter your mind. We do not need a beautiful, pretty colored journal. However, one may carry their journal wherever they go at their own risk.
Just by writing our current thoughts and speaking our mind out on a sheet of paper, help us make enough space for new, improved ideas. One may tear the letters or deeds and trash them, so those thoughts are practically gone.
Often I prefer writing affirmations and events that I want to exhibit against what my current situation may appear to be. Assertions are one of the fastest ways to boost us up during difficult times. However, each of us is unique, and our response to a particular activity might vary.
Treat Yourself a Coffee Break
Treating us with a tea/coffee break is like going for a short picnic. We receive a quick walk, fresh air, and who knows might meet someone fun-loving. Taking us away from the scenario that might be bothering, helps to release all the negative energies.
Sometimes the number of coffee breaks we take can be an indication of a stressful mind. Creating space helps to think, revise, and analyze ourselves as well as the cause of our stress.
Talking with Your Go-To Person
We all have that one friend who is always available to have a small conversation. The person can be your co-worker or a long-distance friend or even your family member.
Several times, I have ended up befriending the guy at the coffee counter. It feels safe to let out your thoughts to someone who might be completely unrelated to the people you deal with every day. We may share our grievances and worries with them; nevertheless, it is never too late to switch topics and discuss something that can distract us from our current reality.
Pictures and Gifts
Pictures of our loved ones and gifts received are an example of the love and value they shared with us. It is healthy to keep and decorate our house and office space with these small remembrances. Likewise, reading those short notes and greeting cards received on various occasions may help us switch our mind back to normal and in a loving state.
A friend in need is a friend indeed. Sometimes, we need to become our friends in need, and so, we need to figure out the ways that keep us in a happy place. Our mind creates our reality. Hence, it is worth taken care of when needed.
