A bad mood or depression? I’ve battled depression for over 50 years. It’s taken many, many years to find the best coping mechanisms that work best for me.
I use a multi-layered approach. My go-to is music. That and staying away from other people. Music, upbeat only, frees my mind and helps take it off what is bothering me. For a bad mood that is usually enough.
If I’m really irritated I will stay away from everyone. When I’m feeling this bad other people annoy me beyond belief. I become intolerant and I have a hard time dealing with stupid people even on my best days.
Last and most important I meditate.
Hope this helps!
