Top Tip - MANAGING LOW MOOD



So how do you manage a low mood?

Together there are a few ways we can change a low mood.


  • Talk about how you are feeling to someone who you are comfortable with to share your thoughts e.g. a friend or a relative
  • When other people say hurtful things to you, try not to take it personally.  Maybe they are projecting their feelings on to you?
  • Keep a positive diary and everyday list 5 positive things about your day - it can be as little as being aware of the sun shining.  Note - no negative things can go in the diary!
  • Keep active physically by exercising daily, even if it's only a short walk.  Just getting out in the fresh air can be beneficial.
  • Try to keep active mentally as this will help distract you from your negative thoughts.  Keep a list of things you can occupy your day with.
  • Eat regular nutritionally balanced meals as this can help maintain your mood
  • Try to socialise even if it's just for a few hours a week
  • Do things that you enjoy daily such as a hobby
  • Take time to relax everyday and listen to music that elevates your mood
