Your mindset is most often either your biggest roadblock to overcoming a bad mood or the best pathway into seeing things more positively. If you practice sitting/sulking in your bad days and spouting off negativity about how nothing will ever get better, you won’t be able to see anything good. But if you focus on taking in those moments that aren’t great and understanding that they don’t have to define your whole day, or even a whole hour – you’ll be able to handle them better.

It’s taken a lot of work to cultivate this mindset, and it’s not a linear journey
