Senia Maymin addresses how to deal with “bad” moods in an article:
“The problem with bad moods is that they stop you in your tracks, they hinder you from doing other things that can lead to continued small successes and that can move you forward in life.
“Additionally…you can’t always be waiting for the muse. Most often in life, you need to do things whether you’re in a bad mood or a good mood.
“For example, compare a person who takes actions to move his life forward only when he’s in a good mood (or when the muse strikes him) to a person who takes actions to move his life forward no matter what mood may have set on him temporarily.
“Who will likely be more productive?”
She goes on to explain:
“Here are the three principles Karen Reivich teaches to get out of a bad mood. I remember these as A.P.E.
A – Alternatives P – Perspective E – Evidence
“Karen Reivich suggests that these are best used ‘When you need to disarm negative thoughts so that you can stay focused on the task at hand.'”
