Bad Mood

How to Stop Feeling Down

The fast-changing nature of emotions could, in a few seconds, turn moments of happiness into moments of deep sadness. How many times were you feeling right then? In less than a minute, you felt down?

In my article covering Mood swings, I mentioned many of the reasons behind these fast swings in the mood, and in this article, I am going to continue talking about such causes.

The accumulation effect

One of the compelling reasons that can force you to feel down is the accumulated effect of two or more unresolved issues.

If you felt good, you received some information about potential problems; your mood will swing in less than one minute.

Suppose that you woke up feeling good and as soon you got out of your bed you remembered that you have an appointment after 20 minutes, this alone won’t make you feel bad, but it will establish the base for which a pile of annoying emotions could be built upon.

Suppose that a few moments later, you found that the shirt you intend to wear was stained. At this moment, you may feel very stressed and thus become vulnerable to wild mode swings.

You don’t have to lose your money in the stock market to feel bad because at this state you are in, any tiny bit of bad news will spoil your whole day.

Consequently, small problems alone never succeed in changing our moods; however, it’s their combined effect that can completely alter our mood.

How to stop feeling down

The best way to deal with this accumulated effect is never to allow the pile to be constructed in the first place.

Usually, when people face an unsolved problem, they just move on without trying to deal with it because it doesn’t cause them much pain, but a few moments later, when another issue appears,s they start to feel bad and even depressed.

The advice I have for you is to try to deal with all of these small issues as soon as you encounter them. Don’t underestimate their effect because if they accumulated together, they could make you feel terrible.

The major bad moods you experience may result from the accumulation of a few unresolved issues of smaller size. I know that some problems can’t be solved at the same time they are encountered, but you must at least tackle the ones that can be solved.

You can also delay the process of encountering new information until you feel that you can handle more surprising news.

For example, if you were waiting for a mail from the person who interviewed you, that will determine whether you will work form for him or not then you should only check your mail when you feel like being able to tolerate more new events.

If you were stressed or if we’re already feeling a little down, then it’s better to delay checking your mail until your mood returns to its normal levels.
