It's Not-So-Ritzie

Something Good

I recently read an article on regarding something that we need to overcome on almost a daily basis.

10 Ways to Let Go and Overcome a Bad Mood

1. Get to the root.

2. Be real.

3. Complete the “I’ll feel better when I …” sentence.

4. Take responsibility.

5. Think it out.

6. Change the story in your head.

7. Want to understand.

8. Uplift yourself.

9. Use the silly voice technique.

10. Repeat.

Great suggestions on how to readjust your mood. However, the weekend we just had was also a remedy for a bad mood.  Getting outdoors, and more importantly getting exercise are both a way to overcome a bad mood. It was a beautiful weekend to breathe in some fresh crisp air, view the fleeting foliage, and laugh with the company of good friends.  We had an early trek through the woods.  Proto was a happy little pup taking an early morning swim and diving for rocks. If it was a little colder, his fur would have formed icicles. My husband had a great day of mountain biking which came in three parts.  First, a father and son ride which usually has a little battle up the hills but ends with a proud father and a stoked son. Next an adventure with a friend and then a solo mission through the mountains of Michaux.  Later he made a comment about needing to remember days like today when things aren't going so well.  All in all, if life is throwing you some negative vibes, take those vibes and turn them around.

“Every day may not be good, but there’s something good in every day.”
