Default How do you deal with bad mood?

Hi guys and girls!

I've been training for years and one thing that always presents an obstacle for me in terms of performance and strength is having a bad mood. Whenever I feel sad, angry or frustrated by something happening with my life, my strength and performance are considerably affected.

One thing that helps me a bit is music. But that doesn't always work.

How do you guys deal with having a bad mood? What has worked for you?

Knowing why I'm in a poor mood helps me to contain the mood so that others aren't affected by it and sometimes being in a bad mood can make for a productive session, if you channel the emotions.

When I'm in a bad mood, a little shooting always cheers me up.

Understand your triggers and have coping strategies for when they arise.

Between pizza, deadlifts, and sex, I've got my bases covered. Preferably all at the same time.

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.

when i train. i crank up whatever music strikes my mood. can be for the length of the song or the same style or even band or sometimes the same song the entire workout. whatever triggers the emotion. I then use my time training as my meditation. its my time for me. i clear my head and just focus on the immediate task at hand.
