I am not familiar with that, CDM. I measure progress by comparing today to the day before. When I had surgery, I hurt so much for days that I thought I was never going to feel better. One day I realized that I felt a little better and I stayed there for a few days and then I realized I felt a lot better. A few days later, I realized I only had a little bit of pain and I realized that I REALLY was getting better. smile

Progress is slow and sometimes it seems like there is none happening. But if you make daily comparisons, you see that there IS SOME improvement. At least that is what I found when I had my surgery, and sure enough, I DID get well. wink

It is interesting how someone visiting with news, like your housemaid, can affect a person's mood, isn't it? It gives us something to look forward to, doesn't it? I am the same way when my neighbor calls me with news. laugh

I will be away for most of next week but I'll be thinking of ya'll. wink Have a great weekend! smile

WOW! It's been a year and a half since we added to this thread but some of these ideas are TERRIFIC! I have learned alot in the last 1 and 1/2 years and I would have to say that smiling is the first thing that I do to get into a more positive mood. I still enjoy driving around with a smile and giving BIG SMILES away to perfect strangers! It still amazes me how quickly something as simple as a smile can help make another person's day brighter! laugh

Then I force myself to get up and get busy... busy doing almost anything that makes me feel like I accomplished something. Like NIKE's slogan was... JUST DO IT. wink

I LOVE to go listen to birds and surprisingly, I heard a few singing today! It made me feel like it was spring rather than autumn. Anything that brings me close to nature always puts me in a more positive mood. smile

I love to do a few yoga moves, or jazz music. Since the weather is nice in Florida right now, I love taking evening walks after work.

Here are several ways I have used to change my mood:

1) Put on favorite music. (It helps if you notice which music makes you "happy" when you ARE feeling well so you know before hand which music "lifts" you up)

2) Try to help someone else (when helping someone else, often the mood softens)

3) Smile (often this is enough to change the sourness)

4) Clean house (getting rid of clutter seems to help - as well as giving a feeling of accomplishment)

5) Walk outside - move around and breathe. Try to notice the birds, flowers, animals or people around you. If you can't get outside, exercise for a few minutes inside.

6) Meditate or Contemplate.

7) Make a list of 30 things you are thankful for

8) Forgive yourself and the person that caused the mood

9) Make sure you have eaten properly recently, if you haven't eat something healthy for you. This may include B vitamins as they are stress reducers.

10) Call a good friend


I am loving this list!!!
