Mood 2

I think I've found a useful guide to keep my mood in check. Actually, it's being idle in my email for quite sometime ... until this morning when I've gather some courage to open my 'cluttered' email.

 

I don't have the opportunity to practice the guide just yet, but I've to start sooner rather than later. My mood has affected a lot of people to unpleasant effect in the past, in the present and in the future (if I do not do something to keep my mood in check).

 

To my dearest, Iím very sorry for my unpleasant mood yesterday and today. Although Iíve been upset for some reasons, most of them were not because of you. I just have hard times adjusting my emotions.

Mind Your Mood - from RealAge

If you need a mood boost, consider being more mindful."

Practicing mindfulness meditation each day may improve your mood, increase your self-awareness, and decrease stress levels. For a quick start to this art, sit quietly for 10 to 20 minutes, clearing all thoughts from your head. Focus your eyes softly on an object. Note new thoughts or sensations as they occur, but then return to your original focus.

A good way to approach mindfulness meditation is to think of it as the practice of moment-to-moment non-judgmental attention. As you softly focus on an object, allow your thoughts or your attention to drift from experience to experience or from thought to thought without judging the new experience or thought. Many people feel more in tune with themselves and their surroundings after practicing mindfulness meditation. Some people also find the practice very calming, which may explain its correlation with improved well-being.
