  • Become more effective & efficient in managing moods

    The process of ensuring that we are
    in the most appropriate mood for
    the situation begins with simply
    knowing what mood we are in at a
    given moment. However, few of us
    stop to assess our mood during the
    course of the day; we are often
    influenced by our mood without
    being consciously aware of it.

  • Test your mood

    How often do you stop and consider
    what mood you are in? Moodism can
    teach you how to test your mood and
    use that information to your advantage.

  • Mood swings can be positive

    The existence of mood swings
    demonstrates that moods can
    change. The term mood swings
    rarely refers to moods swinging
    from bad to good. Moodism is
    about pioneering a new kind of
    mood swing—a planned one A
    mood swing that occurs when we
    realize we are not in the right mood,
    and that our mood is negatively
    influencing our interactions with
    those we encounter. By right mood,
    we mean matching your emotional
    content to a successful outcome.

  • Changing Your Mood

    Instead of letting your mood
    control you, you can manage and
    control your moods so you put
    unhelpful moods behind you and
    generate moods that allow you to
    be successful. We might want to
    swing from the cheerful mood we
    gained from talking with our
    children to a tough-minded mood
    for our upcoming business meeting. 
    Moodism is about intentionally
    changing our mood so we are in
    the right mood for the situation.

  • Changing Others Moods

    Have you ever been in a group when
    you are in a good mood but no one
    else is? If these individuals are people
    you are trying to work with, their bad
    moods can be counterproductive.
    Happy people are more creative and
    productive people, so helping others
    be in a better mood can benefit you,
    them, the company you work for, and
    anyone else with whom that other
    person comes into contact.

  • How You Change Moods

    All the possible techniques for Moodism
    have one of two possible goals: to get
    us out of the mood we are in, or get us
    into the mood in which we want to be. 
    The variety of ways to change your
    mood is unlimited & unknown.

    • Walk
    • Read
    • Run
    • Leave
    • Nap
    • Eat
  • Connectivity

    Moodists believe a more fulfilling,
    satisfying, successful, effective life
    can be led by understanding our
    moods and connecting with others.
    Our ability to empathize with others,
    and thus to connect with them, is
    enhanced by our willingness to find
    something in our past that allows us
    to identify with the struggles others
    are encountering. This may require
    taking a risk and exposing ourselves
    emotionally, as well as an effort to
    comprehend the motivators for another
    individual’s emotion. Once we connect
    with others, we find that we look
    forward to working with those people,
    we trust them, and believe in them.

  • The Value of Trust

    Empathy allows us to start building
    connections with others, and building
    connections with others fosters the
    development of trust. Once you are
    connected through your moods and
    emotions, interpersonal efficiencies
    increase. Your natural fear fades
    and a willingness to trust, accept,
    understand and challenge others
    in a functional framework is
    now available.

That is how so many people go through their day. Going through the motions; out of touch with themselves and the world they live in. This is not a condemnation, just honesty. I too spent most of my days missing more than I would like to admit.

Then at a family event, just joking around with family and friends I rambled straight into a playful idea that has changed my approach to family, work and life. Moodism. Our goal is to help people be better people. Finding the right balance between emotional management and the management of emotions. Some of the benefits include:

  • Increased Efficiencies
  • Increased Member Satisfaction
  • Improved Member Communication
  • Improved Overall Work Environment
