Bad Mood

How to Instantly Boost your Mood

In all of my previous articles, I was always against quick fixes simply because they never work. It makes no sense to help yourself feel suitable for a few moments, only to feel bad minutes later under the pressure of your unsolved problems.

However, in some cases, you might find yourself in need of a quick mood boost to motivate yourself to get a particular task done that can, in turn, help you reach your long-term goals.

Let’s suppose that you had the goal of losing 20 pounds in a few months. In such a case, using a quick fix such as traveling or even drugs will only make you feel suitable for a short while, but sooner or later, you will encounter something that will remind you of your obesity problem, and you will end up feeling bad.

In such a case, it makes a lot of sense to learn a technique that can help you boost your mood to become motivated to lose weight.

Now that you knew the right way to use this technique, read this post to boost your mood instantly.

Why does our mood change?

Your mood will never change before an external input sends you new data that forces your mind into a particular track. A word that you might have heard, an image that you might have seen, or even a thought that might have come to your mind might have been the reason for your mood swing.

So if external inputs change our moods, then what about using controlled external information for the sake of changing our attitudes for the better?

After reading the last line, an idea such as listening to motivating music might have come to your mind. While your hypothesis was correct, it still won’t work! In my articles about music psychology, I said that external sources wouldn’t help you become motivated unless they match your inner world.

In other words, a motivating song will only make you feel more motivated if you were already motivated.

So if that’s the case, then how can someone give himself a quick mood boost?
By merely doing any tiny action that can motivate him a bit, then using an external source to multiply this motivational force.

3 Steps to boost your mood instantly

So lets put everything together into practical steps:

  1. Prepare the external source: Find any external source that motivates you, like a video, a song, or a quote. The more emotionally charged the source is, the more effective it will be
  2. Take an action that changes your mood a bit: Your subconscious mind won’t help you transform your mood before doing a real-life story. If you want to lose weight, then writing down the plan you will follow in the next few months can be that action. Note that the project will only change your mood if you believed in it.
  3. Elevate the emotion and intensify it: Once you find yourself a bit motivated, excited or happy, use the external source you prepared earlier to get an instant mood boost
