Improve Your Mood – Takeaways from Life & Wealth Mastery with Tony Robbins
Want to improve your mood or conquer your emotions?
I have a nerdy, quick way to make it happen!
I learned this when I spent 10 days in San Diego at a Tony Robbins event called Life and Wealth Mastery. In 10 days, I learned soooo much. Had so many a-ha moments and took home soooo many action items.
I love to share these takeaways with you because it helps me to remember them and use them in my daily life even more.
Would you believe that your negative thinking can cause disease in our body?
One of the causes of disease is having a destructive mindset and negative thinking.
Scary! So what can we do to stop being so negative and in such a bad mood?
If you can measure it, you can manage it.
Introducing : “The Mood Meter.”
It’s a table with all these words that are ranked from -15 to +15, and periodically throughout the day you mark which one you are and the level you feel, then you write down what you could do right now to move up the ladder.
The first time I used this tool I marked -2 in “worried” and I didn’t want to feel that way.
It was the first day of the event, we were doing the cleanse, and wrote down “stop thinking about Cheetos.”
I am not kidding! I was hungry and thinking “I don’t get to eat food for three
days. This is crazy!”
So that was the action within my power that could move me up the ladder: “Stop thinking about Cheetos.”
Distract Yourself : get up and walk around, go do something else, and quickly you will start moving up the ladder. Do this periodically. Set up an alarm on your smartphone, do it for a day or two, and see what happens.
At first, my chart was up-and- down, up-and- down, but as the days went by, I started to score higher numbers: 5, 6, 7, 8… My highest number was 12!
It was just cool to see what everybody was doing, how they were feeling, and at one point, the entire room was above zero, like we all were in a happy place.
If you’re feeling like “I’m never in a good mood” or “I’m always thrown off my good mood when stuff happens and then I’m in a bad mood,” then take this challenge and track your mood.
All you have to do is use a scale of -15 to +15, set an alarm on your smartphone, and ask yourself “What can I do within myself, within my environment, to make this number go up?”
Send me a note and let me know how it’s going. I’d love to know the things that you do that make you happier.
