This morning while surfing through the Spark Articles I ran across the following one: Bad Mood Busters: 35 Surprising Ways to Boost Your Mood. If you haven't had a chance to read through these you should. I have placed the link below for your convenience.
It is always nice to get someone else's perspective on what breaks their bad mood. I'm rarely in a bad mood but when I am watch out . I'm normally a happy-go-lucky kinda gal and not much bothers me. I'm sure it was the way I was raised, plus the fact that I'm spiritually in-tune with myself.
But...when I am in a bad mood I write. No, I don't journal, but I write poetry or songs. It releases whatever I'm thinking about, plus there is always a way to reflect back at another time for the just-in-case it every happens again scenario.
So what do you do to bust your bad mood? We can't eliminate all of our emotions so we need to listen to them and not just brush them under a rug.
By this I mean when getting on SP do you have a certain order that you go in when viewing articles or gathering those SP Points?
First thing I do is read all of the articles that come to me via my email. After those articles are read it do my actual Spark Spin . If I haven't accumulated enough points to get my bonus spin , I continue to read articles until I do.
After the bonus spin I answer those darn trivia questions. Some are pretty easy while others are not.
Then it's on to documenting my food for the day and what I will be doing exercising (then I do my exercising after so I don't forget, prolong it or procrastinate my way out of it).
Exercise done . Now I'm off to see what else I can do to accumulate at least 100 points a day.
Ah yes.....Those SparkAmericia extra team points. Do ya find yerself hollering at the monitor.. 50 points! 50 points!? I do.. lol.. poor Mike got woke up again
That just about does my routine for getting on Spark People every morning. Fun! Fun! Fun!
This weekend with the band was awesome. We had a great time and I got to see many people who had followed our band previously. It was so much fun and I haven't had fun like that in awhile. My knee did pretty good considering I was standing more than usual. And I only had to take one pain killer so that was pretty good as well. It took the edge off.
If you are on facebook and would like an invite to our site or you can look us up as Klassic Kountry. And I'll add ya if you want to follow us.
As many of you remember I used to sing in a band that played Classic Country music. You know all of the old good country music not today's stuff. Well this weekend after being split up for almost five years our band "Klassic Kountry" is having a reunion. We will practice on July 4th and play at a Sportsman's Club on July 5th.
Wish everyone could come to hear us. We played so many venues I can't even remember all of them. I have put together a scrap book which none of the group has ever seen so I'll be taking that with me.
On another note: I went to physical therapy yesterday. I had forgotten to take my pain meds before going and I made it through okay but a few hours after that I could barely bend my knee. So I iced it again and than I put some Aspercreme on it to get rid of some of the extra muscle aching. It still hurts this morning which isn't going to be a good sign for the rest of my day but I've learned to compromise and adapt. I took an ice pack with me and left it at work and I also have something that I can prop my leg on when the swelling starts to get too bad. It's tolerable but who wants tolerable? I want PAIN FREE!!!
Doesn't it feel like a Friday? To me it does. Mostly because I'm done with work for the next four days, WooHoo!!!!!
