4 Tips to Help You Get Out of a Blah Mood Terri January 6, 2016 4 Comments I woke up in such a blah mood. It got real this morning. You ever have one of those days where it seems like the world is out to get you? That’s how my day began. I’m not sure if I had a bad dream or what, but I woke up not feeling like myself. It doesn’t help that it’s cold (and I’m from the east coast, I know cold) gloomy and rainy here in San Francisco. I had a bunch of to dos on my list that I wasn’t too thrilled about along with some personal things that made me feel even more BLAH. My body was in pain and I was feeling super lazy. Then I thought about the webinar that I’m hosting today at 4:00 pm PST. Sheesh! I gotta get myself together foreal! One of my biggest fears when it comes to scheduling events far into the future, is the uncertainty of my mood and circumstance. When I announced my webinar a few weeks ago I was in a great place and I had no idea what Tuesday, January 5th would bring me. There’s an incredible quote by Joyce Meyer that says: “If we have to wait to see how we feel before we know if we can enjoy the day, then we are giving feelings control over us. But thankfully we have free will and can make decisions that are not based on feelings.” With that being said, I’d like to share 4 easy-to-use tips to help get you out of a blah mood. I’ve used them today and I’ll continue to use these throughout the day if my mood tries me again. 🙂 4 Tips to Help You Get Out of a Blah Mood 1. Reflect Whenever I get into a blah mood the first thing I do is reflect. I think about what could be causing the mood. I reflect on any recent changes I’ve made that may contribute to my mood. I try my best to get to the root of the feeling. Reflection includes journaling, creating a personal voice memo or video where you can dump your feelings and free up more mental space for positive feelings. If you figure out why you’re in a blah mood, then you can work from there. 2. Sing and Dance to Your Favorite Song One of my favorite jams (do people still say jams?) is Mary J. Blige, Just Fine. The song is upbeat, positive and empowering. It’s kind of hard to have an attitude when you’re singing and dancing to your favorite song. I honestly don’t think it’s possible to sing and dance when feeling blah. 3. Share Your Feelings With Someone You Trust There’s something about getting things off your chest… it really has a way of lightening the mental and emotional load. I chatted with my husband this morning and told him about how I was feeling and it really did help. Being honest with myself (and you) is so empowering for me! I realize that everyone has off days and I don’t feel so bad about it because we’ve all experienced it one time or another. 4. Meditate If you find yourself in a situation like me where you have an interview, a webinar or live event and you’re fighting off a blah mood, take some time to meditate and visualize the space you’d like to be in. For me, I’m meditating on the purpose of the webinar. The life-changing content that means so much to me and when I think about the end goal, which is inspiring someone to find their passion and become their best self, my little mood goes out the window. I’m also visualizing a successful event that’s empowering, inspiring and useful. Want to join me for the webinar?
