Our patience is tested several times a day. From fighting bad drivers in traffic to listening to your boss ask you to do something when you already have a hundred things on your to do list for the day. With these stresses and more it is easy to let your mood get the best of you and go off! Going off won't solve a thing nor will being in a bad mood for half of the day because you got cut off on the freeway. I'm sure you have heard the saying, "Life is short" a million times but it's so true! Life really is too short to let little things that you can't change affect your mood. Who enjoys being irritated or grouchy?! I sure the hell don't! Staying positive can be a up and down from day to day but one thing I know for sure is that no one is prone to it. Even the most positive thinking, Zen folks are none to get hot under the collar at some point in their life. The great thing is that it doesn't take much to turn that frown into a smile. Here are things you can do TODAY that will instantly boost your mood!
Eat some good food! Making your tummy happy will lift your spirits!
Cocktail-time! - one or two can add some laughter to a long, trying day!
Take some time to enjoy the Sun and the view. Looking out at the huge sky can helps to put things in perspective. It makes you realize how small some things really are!
Working up a good sweat does wonders for stress!
Retail therapy - getting yourself a little pick me up gift always does the trick!
