Ask DN: How do you handle mood shifts?

    I seek out ways I can gain control, because usually my mood shifts come from feeling overwhelmed and anxiety.

    For example, I'll reorganize my desk. Or clean off the files on my desktop. Or write something super easy on my to-do list (like, "eat lunch"), then I'll do it immediately, and check it off.

    Those little things build up tiny bits of momentum and give me a nice runway for getting back on track.
