How to Feel Better -- Right Away
by C.S. Clarke, Ph.D.
Part 3 of 5


 

Be Zany. Up the ante from smiling and laughing to taking an active part in creating the reason for smiles and laughter. You'll not only get the benefits of smiles and laughter, but you'll also break yourself out of any of the following you may have: 1. negativity cycle; 2. being "stuck" in a boring or depressing behavior pattern or routine; 3. a lack of creativity; 4. a lack of mental flexibility.

Shake up your life a little with a bit of out-of-the-ordinary action (for you.) Wear a green wig for a dinner party and tell everyone you lost a bet. "Smoke" a bubble gum cigar while outfitted with a Groucho Marx nose and mustache. But don't go for a cliché like wearing a lampshade on your head -- I mean, really, it's been done to death. (Unlike Groucho.)

Don't go too far out of your comfort zone on your first tries. You want to be able to build up a tolerance for change and difference. And you want to feel better, not embarrassed.
