When I get sad I like to take a salt bath because it calms me down and helps me relax. I like to put on music that makes me smile and shifts my thinking and if neither of those things work I write in my gratitude journal and remind myself that I am blessed.
To improve my mood I could: 1. Stop comparing myself with others. 2. Make my work the best I know how to make it. 3. Eat better.
Great trio! Have you started doing them?
The 3rd one, yes. The other two are tougher. I’ve not been in the right frame-of-mind to write, but will practice when the muse comes back.
I need to be better at morning devotionals, choose to be in a good mood, and eat breakfast lol
It sounds like a plan!
Exercise. Hug my kids and tell them i love them. Write.
This can really improve your mood 🙂
1. Make more use of my fan (I bought one to help me get through this heat wave. It sure does improve my mood!)
2. Snack more healthily. Maybe I can’t do my regular workouts due to the heat, but it doesn’t mean I can slack off. Snacking makes me feel unhappy afterwards, but not so much when I snack healthy!
3. Instead of focusing on things going wrong, I want to focus on things going right.
Your no 3 is my favorite! 😀
Mine too. It’s also the most difficult one! :’)
But I’m sure it’s the most rewarding.
Waking up healthy is a great start . No really I try to find the humor in situations\life and laugh. I look or think about someone less fortunate. That keeps the focus from myself and on helping someone each day which always makes me feel better. Find something to be passionate about each day and do it.
The humor part is exactly what Will Smith does and look how great he is 🙂
Exercise – even some simple stretches – can make a big difference and give me positive energy. Also singing helps. (Singing is a form of light exercise.) Both of these are things I could do more regularly. Lately, I’ve cut back on my Facebook time, but still looking more at positive and/or humorous Facebook pages. Thanks for asking to reinforce the exercise. I think I’ll stretch right now!
Exercising is a great way to improve the mood!
1. Read a devotional.
2. Exercise a little.
3. Eat healthy foods.
Those three things boost my mood every single day. I believe there’s no more best way to improve your mood but to start your day right.
I agree with you! What we do in the morning can set the tone for the whole day.
1. Meditation (Vipassana or Anapanasati);
4. Listen to music
Awesome list! 😀
Thank you 🙂 <3
Meditation, soaking in a pink sea salt bath, and aromatherapy. Preferably all at once in the dark or in candlelight. I can’t even get stressed after that.
Great combo! These three things eliminate the word stress from the mind.
not much as it is individual to a persons taste and goals , one step for you is me sleeping so the broad idea of this question is simple but the abstract aspect is more defined than a generic answer and its more fun
As long as you know what helps you improve your mood and you do that daily, it’s great! 😀
true , but talking to you is a perk lol my online family
Ok, online family 🙂
is that a scary thought
No. It’s real.
I find attachments aren’t always a human sitting beside you it’s the focus of support that something offers and accepts and appreciates you as you maybe because words are not judged as harshly as humans face to face
okay another question , If the focus on life is achievements than why is the precious resource of education beyond everyone who denies the grinding of actually having to ground yourself and improve your learnt skills is that not a starting point?
Fear of failing and judgment stops us from starting in the first place. If that achievement is seen as an ideal and not achievable, people don’t even start.
based on what kind of worth is the core to these predictions of human behavior , is fear not the basis of many emotions
Fear is stronger than many emotions.
it is subdued by structure and routine is it fair to suggest that it’s programmed like a computer?
Fear is only stronger because we validate it and reinforce the negatives ourselves by our own thought process
Yes, of course, but this doesn’t make it less reak.
True but our emotions rule the process we take for granted but really great point 🤔
Here is my question to you…. What is the core belief to having a selfless self worth that completes the journey we take from birth?
Is it selfless? Maybe some of our intentions are selfless, but I think the outcome is never selfless since it always brings something back. Even the lack of outcome is a sort of outcome that comes from that action. We might think that we are selfless and we do things for other people without thinking about ourselves, but since our actions makes someone feel good which makes us feel good, we might become addicted to that feeling even if we don’t know it. At the same time it’s selfless and not so much maybe.
That is a good answer and makes the point valid that humans are flawless and flawed , but the spectrum of focus is misdirected to a conclusion not a decision, maybe in terms of the slow movements of satisfying the societal required points of achievements but self less is seen through religious and giving more to get less in life by the words of a book. The top of a thought is addicted to selfless conflicts that burden most with a lost memory themselves.
So in repeating the process is it not a drop of blood that is the most selfless or the creation of a life that will morn and replace you, our actions are auto and our thoughts lack selfish substance which created the whole idea of man in the first place.
Give more so you can have less in this life, but to have a better afterlife. Is that selfless?
depends on the action we under take to become free from the chains of morality and the timeless travel of sharing even when we are silent , courage and being brave by standing alone with a heart ready to grow wings is that not a foundation instead of being darling and sweet
Grow wings for what purpose?
To observe the movements we missed as we are bound by feet
But then again, what’s the purpose to observe those movements? To get better today than yesterday? If so, what’s the point of getting better if not to have a better life?
to be the balance of the water we are as a form of life such as earth , air , fire , water
And why would we want to be balanced?
If not balanced then maybe suggestions on another complexed abstract way of acting a fool in life not love
balance is the unique view of each person so suggestions of perfect balance is the fraction of having another piece of a pie in a shop window
Yes, but it’s not selfless.
How would you define it , for me it’s the process of the internal selves and how I continue the gravity of humanity and it’s liking of structure of thinning happiness and lifting ones mind to other levels which are safe from reality
I think that “balance” is the best term. It express the idea that it’s not tilted to either direction, whatever that direction might be, but having a balanced life is first of all for ourselves (we are ok) and what we do with it goes second. That’s why I think it’s not selfless.
A very good point
I love chatting to you , i like that you challenge my thoughts
I’m doing my best 😀
It’s awesome keep going , good morning by the way
Thank you! Good morning 😀
Morning which has turned into night
So good night then 🙃
Night is good , it’s raining at the moment , I love the smell of rain
Me too 🙂
I love the rain and how it is the best sight any age can appreciate
I mentioned you in a post , you have been dubbed as a great conversation.
Thank you so much! 😀 Can you please share the link of that post?
its the good morning online family update done today one , I have no idea how to link things yet
I found it! Thank you so much! You help me get better with your questions as well! 🙂
Let me ask you a question no 1- what is the connection to physical wants and needs compared to spiritual connections , which one is stronger in foundation and why?
It depends from a person to another based on their life experience and their surroundings.
okay , so do you think that the broad aspect of relationships is part of a spectrum covered by experiences of people or persons , due to many issues surrounding pressure from different angles
I wouldn’t say surrounding pressures, but I believe that our surroundings combined to our personality which has been created by our experiences, create our responses. If we’re always surrounded with negative people and situations and we do have a negative mindset, we’ll have negative responses to almost whatever we encounter.
True so in a sense your referring to a butterfly affect that goes backwards , the giving is an anti version of choice and we are bound to its ignorance in nature without knowing , does that sound correct
Yes, and also the plant (the person) is based on how the seed is (the experience).
Absolutely a valid point
insanity , vanity , compassion , just cause?
I just did a shout out to you , I hope many more conversations are coming my way.
Thank you! I’m sure they’ll come 😀
That is awesome I love chatting
fear being the years we have escaped by having falling tears in many ways we gain our sorrow to learn , but in case of sensitive complexed complications within a tornado that lives in each of us making a path not of destruction but music to listen to as we walk towards bigger things when other things fall away from you.
I improve my mood by: Taking a walk to get air and clear my thoughts. 2 Listen to upbeat uplifting music. 3 Get energy healing, reiki, and massages frequently.
That’s great! And you do this every day?
Thank you! I do #1 and #2 everyday and #3 as much as possible 🙂
Listen to music
Imagine (the simple things basically)
Can you give an example of what you imagine? It seems very interesting 😀
I feel silly just at the thought of talking about it lol, but it helps me quite a bit
Do it only if you want to. I’m always curious about these kind of things so feel free to share whatever you want whenever you want 😀
1. Have a cup of coffee
2. Read something enriching
3. Reach out to a friend with the intent of having even just a short conversation.
Only one cup? :)) can you give some examples of what enriching things have you read today?
Well maybe more than one XD
HM, I recently read an article outlining what it means to be a mother in an age where “helicopter” parenting is perceived as safer and “free range” children are seen as being endangered. I’d like to have children in the next few years so I found the article really interesting and it made me think a lot about parenthood in general. I classify anything that gives me something substantial to think about as “enriching” ^^
That’s very interesting.
2. get enough sleep.
3. helping someone else to get their needs met, then the focus comes off me.
Do you have the chance to do them every day? If so, it’s great!
