Strategy 5-Don’t be fooled by a bad mood
-Self-awareness allows us to know what we are going through even if you cannot change the outcomes. To avoid a bad mood deception let us:
Admit to ourselves that our mood is bad.
Ask God to show us why we feel this way.
Remind ourselves that we can be going through a mood swing.
Do not make any decisions while we are feeling this way.
Do not dwell on the low mood for too long.
Strategy 6-Don’t be fooled by good mood, either
When we are feeling excited and happy, it is easily to do something we will later regret. Spending, investing on what we thought were deals, can lead to impulsive decision that can result in financial debt. Before making any decisions, let us ask ourselves who will be getting the glory out of this? (self, family, god)
Remember “And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7).
