Real talk: it’s okay to be in a bad mood. It’s part of life!
tbh I was in a really bad mood when this photo was taken. I woke up that morning stressed about all the things on my to do list, I worked out & wasn’t feeling great about my body, I felt tired and kind of run down. Things just weren’t going right that day. BUT instead of letting my mood ruin the rest of my day... I said “okay, I have 5 more minutes of complaining and then I’m going to stop and change my mood” so that’s what I did. I set an alarm and then spent the next 5 minutes talking about everything that was upsetting me. When it went off I took a few deep breathes, and then started talking about all the things going WELL in my life, what I was grateful for & a few dreams I’m trying to manifest a la my vision board. My day TOTALLY changed after that. I spent the rest of the afternoon having insightful and silly conversation. Starting the day with a feeling of dread and ending it with a feeling of excitement ..all bc of a mindset shift. Moral of the story: you can pick your mood!! You have that power. Remember that. And sometimes you need that last 5 minutes of complaining - but then stop! U have so much to be grateful for.
Found a pic that describes my entire mood today. 🤘🏼
Exercise plays such a huge role in my mental health. I don’t necessarily exercise for aesthetic reasons. I exercise because it helps get my brain in the right place to work in the field that I do. I FINALLY felt like myself all day today and I know it’s because I was able to sweat this morning. Two days off gave my body time to heal, but it was craving that workout when I woke up this morning. Grateful to have found such a good stress relief and something that makes me excited to get out of bed.
