Go ahead, mope!

Feeling like moping around?  Go ahead.  Mope.  Just don't do it for very long because it won't get you into a better mood.  Activity is what you need.  So when you feel like just laying on the couch with your head under a pillow, go ahead.  But first, put the timer on for two minutes.  Mope all you want. Wallow in your pity.  Then when the timer goes off, get your butt off the couch and take a walk around the block.  Sweep the floor.  Fold some clothes.  Shoot some hoop.  Make a salad.  Write out a letter to the editor.  But, get active.  I challenge you to see whether you feel like moping around for another two minutes when you finish shooting baskets or walking through the hood.  Even if you do, turn the timer on again and give yourself another two minute wallow.  BZZZZZZZ!  Time for moving!!
