Get New Input

You may notice that often when you are in a bad mood you don’t do very much. Depressed people often perpetuate their mood by remaining in the same environment.

Going to see friends, watching a movie, reading a book, even doing the errands and chores that need to be done, are all methods of getting new input.

The term is generally used to explain one's present moment or how they feel about their life in a broad sense. Psychologists see it as a 'subjective' emotional state of a person's well-being. It focuses on our personal feelings in the existing moment.
