Now when I know that I’m upset:
1. I first try to see if there’s a reason for why I am upset and what that reason is.
2. Once I know what that reason is, I sit on it for a bit and see if there’s something I can do to fix it. (This works especially if I’m overthinking something.)
3.If I know what’s upsetting me, I try to sleep it off – (it works best). Have some food, the nutritious the better and listen to some good music. I also like distracting myself with some feel good shows or I talk to a friend.
I try with one of those first, assess where I’m at mentally and try something else on the list if I’m still in a definite funk.
Once I’m even 5% out of a funk, I’ll try to think of a different activity. If it takes more than 15 mins to think of something, it’s back to the list for me.
