Book Review: Win your Mood by Nidhi Singh Chauhan

Win your Mood is a resourceful self-help book by the subject matter expert Nidhi Singh Chauhan. Written in highly presentable form with lucid language, this book indeed lifts up the mood with its tips, tricks, and other positive insights. In a sense, the book is not a dull or drab repetitive effort. The teachings inside are evident of Nidhi’s values and healing experience she doled out to people in need.

The book stretches up to 25 chapters. The last chapter sums up many important lessons briefly – it was indeed a gem in the book. The core teaching of the book highlights the vitality of self-talk and choices. They both are critical to our overall mental, physical, and life success. The book starts with classification of our mind like conscious, subconscious, pre-conscious and it goes on with quotes from eminent figures, and a few short stories from the daily lives.

Nidhi has done a wonderful job by commencing the book with mind thing. It’s imperative to understand our mindset/frame before we accept anything to implement in our life. Yet, her focus remains on converting a diffident and negative mood to positive state. In a shocking revelation, it comes out that our mind is engaged into negative self-talk for around 96 percent. Thus, it’s really important to empower our thoughts with good feelings for meaningful actions.

Thoughts > Feelings > Actions

Right at the beginning, the author pinpointed the state of mind with resourceful and unresourceful. Diagrams, charts, quotes, activities, affirmations – all these aspects decorate the book with full gusto, adding a charming authenticity to Nidhi’s words.

The entire book is like a kind of encyclopedia on mood shifting, yet this excerpt may help you in winning your mood.

Affirmations for Positive Mental Attitude:

  • I am getting better every day
  • I am an amazing person
  • I choose today to be a joyful day
  • I am grateful to have individuals in my life who inspire me, care for me, and provide me with opportunities to develop.
  • Every day, I make a difference
  • I feel proud of myself
  • Happiness depends upon me
  • I believe in myself and respect myself
  • I am learning valuable lessons every day in my life
  • I feel fortunate and deserving.

As the book chugs ahead leaving core mental aspects, it begins shedding light on personality development silently, for instance topics like ‘Face your Fears’, ‘Boosting Confidence’. In many chapters, the book follows a particular approach and format so the learning becomes easy and presentable. As you completed reading, you will feel the power to win your mood for positivity and life that needs to be lived and enjoyed, not to be sulking in futile hedonistic endeavors. Practically, the book achieves its veracity as mentioned – simple ways to uplift your mood by changing your thoughts and feelings.

Nidhi’s wordsmithing power ropes in lucidly. She rides high on explaining most difficult concepts in very simple and docile language usage. The book is full of take-aways.  Highly recommended!

Stanza 1: I met a traveller from an antique land Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand, Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown, And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command, Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed; Summary: The poet narrates the poem through the eyes of a traveler who seems to have come back from a remote and far-away land, referring to Egypt.
