3 things you can do to change your mood

Featured

Sometimes words tire you, and to stay alive you need to dig deeper. You need to understand there are moods and these moods could very much swing. In fact, it’s normal to have mood swings.

Some days you’re brimming with excitement at each word, renewed energy, and other days the words taste stale, sour, if you like. Is this normal? Hell yea! it’s normal.

It’s normal for you to feel fatigued. It’s normal for you to feel disconnected, once a while. Don’t be too hard on yourself, and don’t think you’re lazy either. You’re just tired, it’s okay to be tired.

And it’s also okay to spring back up to life.

Words matter. That’s the truth. Yea, they’re clicheric, yea they are onerous, but they matter. Words make sense. Words are powerful. Powerful enough to give birth to this platform (WordPress) we use in expressing ourselves through writing.

Here are a few things you can do when you feel sapped of creativity.

1. Take a break

Did you know it’s okay to take a break? Yea, don’t worry, you won’t come off as lazy.

Just know that it is okay to take a break. It is okay to say “enough”, shut the lid and just take a stroll.

Are you a writer or a painter or anything in fact? Then just know that when you’re tired of doing what you do over and over again, you can take a break.

It doesn’t mean you lack stamina. It doesn’t mean you’re not cut out for it. So don’t be too hard on yourself.

2. Do something totally unrelated

Let’s say you’re writing a book, and you get to this point where it doesn’t make sense to you anymore. Everything in you is telling you to give up. The better part of you is telling you that your work is crap and it’s not going to see the light of day.

But sometimes not listening to the inside you is the best thing you can do. Sometimes you just need to do something totally unrelated.

Yea, go skiing, go bowling. Do something unrelated to what’s depressing you.

3. Meditate

Did you know that meditation is the best cure for an anxious mind? Are you feeling anxious right now?

Good. Anxiety is a good thing, because it gives you a chance to calm your nerves.

So just take a seat. You don’t have to bend your legs yoga style, you just have to switch off the lights (don’t think of anything horror), and just breathe. It doesn’t get any easier than that.

Do you feel better now?

If you have any techniques you use when you’re feeling low and maxed out, please let others know by commenting.

Loads of love to you all reading. It’s takes love to read someone else’s writeup.

There Was This Burning Curiosity Alive in Me

Sometimes you look at this world and you’re like, yea, life is cool. And sometimes you look at this world and you’re like, what kind of hell is this?

Growing up, I was philosophically hard on my parents. Why am I here? What am I doing here? What is here? I was always this child that would relentlessly ask questions. I wanted to know. There was this burning curiosity alive in me. It wasn’t enough to just go to church and swallow everything I was told, I wanted to know. How did the world come about? Well, that’s not your question to ask, they said. In fact, God abhors questions.

And now I’m thinking, the white man God or the universe God?

The thing about me is I don’t play politics. We die either way, so why do I have to please you? I’m going to speak the truth in black and white. Yea, slavery happened. Yea, it’s messed up. Yea, humans kinda have no clue.

For me, mostly, it’s all a dream. Trying to understand reality is progressively futile. Uncountable atoms work all day, not for you to try to understand them, but for you to imagine, to create.

Think about it, why atoms? Why electrons moving about a thing called nucleus? Why are there so many of them? Why all the clockwork? For us to dwell all our infinitesimal lifetimes figuring it out? All these existential industry for us to keep asking why it’s happening?

It’s intricately futile!

The storyteller would say, I know reality (existence) is complex, complex enough to make me, so why don’t I seek to connect the dots, creat my own reality?

Well, what will the philosopher say? What will you say?
