When you are down in tje dumps, angry, resentful, etc., it is so hard to be grateful and see good… what are some quick fixes to get out of a funk/stinkin’ thinkin’?

Honestly, I work hard to stay present, be aware of my moods, my triggers, what is making me feel angry, etc. I'll write about it, call a trusted friend, and then consciously shift the focus to what is going well, or something I appreciate. It always works…

Normally I tell myself that I choose how I feel. Then the questions and answers start in my head. At some stage I tell myself that my anger doesn't hurt them, but only me. Now how can I change my mood/thinking/feeling? I sit down at my desk, breathe a few times. Breathe until my belly pops out, breathe out. Breathe in the goodness, breathe out the bullshit. Close my eyes and go to my *happy place". Everybody must have a happy place. That moment when you feel your are in content. When you experience that moment, you must remind yourself how you felt at that moment. That wanted/needed/loved/laughter moment. Go back to that moment and feel the warmth.
The person that made you feel bad is probably having a bad day. Like we all have someday or the other.

Be grateful for the smallest things that you do have and that are going right, like your health, having food to eat, a place to live, a phone to use, the internet, friends, loved ones, sunshine, fresh air! True gratitude lays in appreciating the most basic things in life, not the big stuff.
