Team 5″7″ getting after it in HD&CC.

We all have crappy days right?  Days where life just kicks you and it’s really difficult to get going or break the mood that whatever has happened to you, puts you in.  I know I do and I’m sure I’m not alone.  Working out is obviously a great way to alleviate stress and hopefully let us think about nothing else than working out, for at least an hour anyways.

I was having one of those days not too long ago so I did what I normally do.  I went online to see if there was anything that could help me out of the funk.  I read the normal blogs I read, looked at funny videos, but nothing was working.  I  came across an article on a blog that had some really simple ideas.  So simple in fact that I didn’t think they would work, but my normal distractions weren’t cutting it.  So here I present to you the 3 simple tasks that I found that actually worked.  Give them a try and see if they can help reverse your mood if you’re in a funk.  

1. Think about 3 good things about your day so far.

These can be small things.  The first cup of coffee you had.  A great workout you did recently.  Zink not stealing any of my protein.  Maddie bringing me in a new amazing concoction she just whipped up and needed someone to try it out.  Small things can add up!

2. Capture your 3 good things in some way.

Email them to yourself.  Post it on instagram.  You’ll have a record of it and this will allow you to go back and visit it anytime you need a pick me up.  Here’s a picture of Pete hamming it up for the camera.  PETE.  That mug usually does it for me.

3. Share one of those good things.

Sharing a positive memory can help you relive it.  Tell a funny story that happened to you to someone and you immediately get to relive it.  Most of my stories can’t be told on this blog, but you’ve all been privy to them. The story may have shocked you but it definitely put me in a better mood.

Any other suggestions you might have post them in the comments.
