Some people seem to be able to maintain a calm, positive, cheerful mood without struggle. I HAVE NEVER BEEN ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE! I have struggled personally and explored professionally many ways to create and maintain positive moods. I hope to share much of what I have learned with you while I push myself to keep up the good work.
I think one of the big things to remember is to pay attention to your mood every day and to remember that you have control of how you feel emotionally. This is a huge change in mindset for some of us. To actually accept that it is not only possible to change your mood, but to then DO IT! You may have to do it many times a day on really hard days.
I’ll start talking about ways to find moments of peace next post!
