Get rid of your bad mood by recording, rating, dealing with it — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
If you notice your productivity slipping because you’re in a bad mood, do something about it. Most moods can be summarized in one word, such as depressed, annoyed, afraid. Seize on the first word that comes to mind to describe your mood, and write it down. Then think of another word that comes to mind—a secondary mood. Write it down, too. On a 1-10 scale, rate how strongly each mood feels. Example: angry, 8; anxious, 5. Recording and rating your moods can help you detach yourself from the feelings, evaluate how strongly they’re affecting you and plan how to overcome them.
