It is not the situation that causes us to feel the way we do.Rather, it is the way in which we interpret and think about the situation that influences our emotions and behavioural responses. Challenging the way that you think about a situation in a realistic and positive way will help you to feel more positive and to cope with the situation.
Being aware of your moods and the factors which may affect them is important in better managing depressed mood. Mood monitoring can also be helpful in reducing a sense of helplessness by graphing progress over a period of weeks and months. This is a more objective measure of actual progress that accepts mood fluctuations occur.
The lethargy circuit theory of depressed mood clearly states that depressed mood often results in reduced motivation and desire to engage in previously enjoyed activities. The concern is that engaging in less activities also then reinforces and worsens your mood.
