You decide what type of mood you are in and no one else. It’s true, we could let anyone ruin our day. We could let the guy that cut us off on the way to work control our entire day simply by allowing that one action to negatively affect us. Or we could let it pass and move on with our day.
Thoughts are a big one, what are you thinking about, what usually puts you in a better mood and then there’s the opposite. What are you dwelling on, what is festering and keeping you in a bad mood.
We could also find things to put us in a better mood. Exercise is important because it almost instantly puts us in a better mood with all those positive thoughts and feel good endorphins flying around. Of course nutrition is there, if we put better quality foods in our body, we have more energy and more energy always makes us feel better.
The list goes on but what it comes down to is, how will you control your mood, who will you allow to change your mood and what will you do about it.
