What to do when you are in a bad mood

Written by on November 27, 2018

Kill someone. Just kidding! This post is an effort in avoiding that! I mean if this were an alternate universe where you could purge, go for Donald Trump or Tsipras. Could you imagine though??? Your mood would ultimately boost after you’re named an American hero with your face on the hundred-dollar bill, a star on Hollywood and Vine, and your face on the cover of a magazine of your choice. I’d choose to be on the cover Vogue with Kathy Griffin with the headline reading: Hero’s ahead of their time.


Being in a bad mood is something that nobody likes to be in. You are in a mental state that does not feel good, you feel the need to lash out to others, you want to burn anything that is in your way, and the point of it all is that none of it is what you want to do.


I’m sure, like the billions of other people on this planet, want peace. People want to feel good about themselves and accomplish things but how could that be done when you are in a bad mood? Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s achievable! Just like, mostly, everything in life.


Analyze The Problem


First, we have to analyze the root of the problem. Why are you in a bad mood? Is it because the wait for your Starbucks drink was unbearable? Is it because of too many unstandable people and not enough normal out there? Is it they had a medium and not a small?


There’s a solution for everything. If you have the money for it of course. Like why wait for coffee when you can make your own with your 1k espresso machine that does it all. Alternatively, get a sex toy! I heard those are great. Get the sparkly dildo, not the bedazzled one (that one hurts). Alternatively, gain the weight and fit into a medium. There is nothing wrong with some leftover jelly.


I know, that last paragraph went on a bit of a tangent, and it was unnecessary. Just like the reason why you are in a bad mood. If you’re in a lousy mood for something small, be appreciative. Please don’t wait until Thanksgiving dinner when it’s your turn in the dinner table to speak upon why you’re thankful. It could be as simple as writing a bullet list of the things that you are grateful for. Once you made your list, reflect and analyze why you’re thankful for those items. The act of thinking about the things that matter to you will put you in a good mood.


Do Something


If analyzing doesn’t solve the issue, or you’re too lazy to make a bullet list on things you’re thankful for, then you’re screwed. Just kidding! I’m such a jokester today.


Another thing you could try is doing something. You could listen to your favorite music. Listen to some new music. I recommend Friday by Rebecca Black, God is A Woman by Ariana (god) Grande, and Fernando by Cher and Andy Garcia. Listening to music can calm you down if you hear to slow music. Alternatively, music can get you up on your feet and get you dancing! Dancing by yourself has always been known to calm down the nerves.


Another thing you could do is exercising. Go for a run down or a walk while listening to your favorite music. You could also try yoga. Yoga is an excellent exercise known to stretch out you’re muscles and calm the mind. You may think, I can’t afford that! That’s what I thought too but I started looking up Youtube exercise tutorials, and they helped.


Hopefully doing something else gets your mind off whatever got you in a lousy mood and turns your frown upside down.




One last resort to solving your bad mood is by watching or do whatever makes you laugh. What I do to help me boost my mood is watch The Office, watch the same Tiffany Haddish late night interviews, watch an Ali Kong special, or read my local comedy newspaper: Twitter.

You could also look up cheesy jokes to make you feel better at the expense of somebody else’s dumb joke.


Just do what I do. Find things that make you laugh and get your mind off whatever is bringing you into a bad mood. Following any of my tips will solve the root of any problem for the short and long term.


Don’t let something get you in a bad mood. Life is too short for that.


Look at me being inspirational. Where is my motivational speaking tour?
