I wake up, I try to get to the gym, I ride the bus, I go to work, I hate my job, I avoid doing my job, I surf the web, watch some YouTube, have my lunch, and get to my tasks at hand.
Granted, not all of my days are the same, but it seems that my moods have very little correlation to the events of the day. This is, I know, sounding a lot like a need for some psychotropic medication, or at least some counseling, but Britney, Lindsay, and Nichole have all of the good therapists tied up right now.
Does my mood correlate to the frequency of sex? I’ve had sex 3 times in the past 8 days, most recently last night, which is quite incredible for my wife and me. Perhaps there is a 24-hour grace period after really good sex that buoys up the spirits of all involved.
Does it correlate with my lunch date schedule? I had a great lunch with a friend of mine today and the best part was that she sent me an e-mail this morning saying, “See you in a few hours!” It was a short note, but it showed me that she was excited to get together, and that made me feel good about the whole thing. To top it off, we had a good meal, fun conversation, some laughter, some physical contact that feels like bonding, and we got out on time.
I don’t follow any professional sports teams very closely, so I really don’t care what happens over the weekend on ESPN. I watch to see what’s going on so I don’t sound like an idiot when my friends talk about their teams, so I don’t think sports is it.
Maybe it’s all related to blood sugar. I had a good, healthy day of eating yesterday, and I’m back on “Points” (Weight Watchers lingo) and feeling as if I’m on the right track.
Maybe it’s because my boss doesn’t call, or write, or e-mail, but every time she does, my blood pressure spikes and it’s sure to put a damper on the rest of the day.
I’m not sure what puts me in such a good mood some days and why other days are just one big funk. Perhaps I shouldn’t over analyze it on days like today when I’m feeling good. Perhaps I should just go home, have healthy snack, and have more sex. It might not work every time, but it’s certainly worth a try.
What do you think? What puts you in a good mood?
