Easy Ways to Break a Bad Mood

The best way to improve mood varies from person to person, but trying a variety of suggested methods can help you find what works for you! You don’t always have to understand why you’re in a bad mood in order to change it. You just need to commit to get out of it.

  • Smile. It’s cheesy, but apparently it’s true: The act of smiling really can turn a frown upside down.
  • Sniff certain scents. Inhaling the scent of orange (or essential orange oil) or lavender can reduce anxiety and improve mood.
  • Count your blessings. Think about or write down what you’re thankful for. Even if there’s not time to write down everything, expressing gratitude creates an instant mood boost.
  • Do something nice for somebody else. Yep, being nice can help us feel nicer. Small actions—holding the door for the person behind you, sending a quick love text to a partner or friend, or donating ten bucks to a favorite charity—count, so there’s no excuse not to get your nice on.

Hopefully, these tips work.
