Have you ever started your day off great and then something happens that just ruins your nice day?
This is what it’s called… mood poisoning. What is mood poisoning?
Anything that changes your mood from good to bad.
What would’ve caused me to become such a sour puss? Hmm…
I hate walking into a room searching for something that I’ve forgotten in the 10 seconds it took me to walk there.
I hate that I have chronic pain every day.
I hate that I feel like I’m missing out on Life when I’m sick.
I hate feeling like I actually hate someone or something. (It’s lousy practice as a human being!)
I tend to place the blame on anything but me, when in reality, I’m the only one who can control the bad or negative emotions!
What causes you to change on a dime? Do you realize that you’re doing it or do you blame someone/something else for YOUR reaction to a problem?
Take charge and recognize yourself. Recognize your own reactions to things that upset you.
That’s giving yourself half the power back. You are giving yourself half control over your negative emotion.
The other half is changing your reaction to what upset you.
Actually calming yourself down and changing from upset to collected.
You can still be disturbed by what upset you, but you can also calm the anger. The dismay. The hurt.
Use that negative energy for something positive. Like taking deep breaths. Or going for a walk.
What do you do to calm yourself after you’ve had a case of “mood poisoning”?
