Video: How To Manage Your Mood - Self-development
Scientists have proven that by developing the ability to accept new knowledge and experience, you can create and strengthen the habit of good mood. Let's figure out how to become a director of your being.
We are all different and peculiar people
Optimists know how to enjoy life, they are more inclined to accept new things without hesitation and enjoy them. Pessimists are suspicious of the new and prefer the familiar. These are simple statistics. But the mood can and even must be controlled.
We smile at the new
First, remember the simple (and well-known) trick with a forced smile. Everyone knows, but let me remind you - even if you stand in front of a mirror in a disgusting mood and force yourself to smile, your mood will rise. Whether you like it or not, the body thinks it is right to give out "hormones of joy" in response to some stimulation. Many people don't care what chemical formula endorphins have and what receptors they interact with.
Change is immutability in changing circumstances
They stood out - and thanks, most importantly - I wanted to smile and enjoy everything around. Another thing is important. Positive reactions also arise in response to new interests, manipulations, ways of doing things, and changes.
The workshop will take exactly one week. Alas, long-term results cannot be obtained faster. It would be better, of course, to spend 21 days. But we are all busy people, and we can be distracted. So, let's begin.
Find the seven most common things around you. In fact, they are in every home, but if suddenly you do not have them, then ask someone. Yes, even with a neighbor.
- 1. To make it easier - this magazine will be the first issue.
- 2. An ordinary ballpoint pen.
- 3. Trouser belt (better not the one you use all the time).
- 4. Cup (any size).
- 5. Thick book (of any content).
- 6. Children's toy (adult can be used).
- 7. Soap (laundry or toilet soap - it doesn't matter).
Did you get everything? Fine. Now place this set on the table in front of you. Take a piece of paper and a pen. And on one side of the paper, write down seven non-standard daily uses for each item. Let me emphasize - everyday. That is, of course, the belt can be attributed to the ability to act as a medical harness. But then it is required that you personally use this tourniquet constantly. There is nothing difficult in this part of the exercise. However, straining your brains - while your brains, and not your own sense of the new - is unusual. Nothing, try. Anyway, until you finish this part, you won't be able to go to the next one.
Are you finished? We turn the sheet over. And draw a table on it. Columns - days of exercise (first, second, third … seventh). The columns are the ways you just thought of. More or less like this:
Now fill in the table. Moreover, in your choice, you are absolutely free. You don't even need to stick to the seven-day schedule. You just choose every day: today I will use a cup like this, and a magazine like this. And do not pay attention to the grins of others and your own feeling of "uncomfortable".
