Did You Know Chat GPT Could Do This?

No, not the image. That came from Midjourney when I asked for Lion’s Gate and a full moon. I’ll talk more about my AI art adventures in another post.

Did you know that Chat GPT can give you “advice” if you ask it a question? I learned this the other day when I was on a zoom call, so I decided to try it out myself. I typed into the chat box: “I’m feeling blah tonight. How can you help me?”

Feeling blah because… maybe Lion’s Gate energy… maybe because work was extra challenging this week… maybe because I had a tough day personally today. No matter the reason, I have taken steps to make myself feel better and I was rather curious to see what Chat GPT had to say. This was the reply:

I’m sorry to hear that you’re feeling blah. While I can’t provide medical or professional help, I’m here to offer some suggestions that might help improve your mood. Remember that it’s important to reach out to friends, family, or a mental health professional if you’re struggling with persistent negative feelings. Here are a few things you could try:

  1. Relaxation Techniques: Consider practicing deep breathing, meditation, or progressive muscle relaxation to help calm your mind and reduce stress.
  2. Engage in a Hobby: Doing something you enjoy can divert your focus and bring a sense of accomplishment. Whether it’s reading, drawing, playing a musical instrument, or any other hobby, spending time on it might uplift your spirits.
  3. Physical Activity: Engaging in physical activity, even if it’s just a short walk, can release endorphins, which are natural mood boosters.
  4. Listen to Music: Music has the power to influence your mood. Listen to your favorite songs or try uplifting, energetic tunes to get your spirits up.
  5. Talk to Someone: Sometimes, just talking about how you’re feeling can make a big difference. Reach out to a friend or family member you trust, or consider seeking professional help if needed.
  6. Practice Gratitude: Reflect on the positive aspects of your life and things you’re grateful for. Writing down a few things you’re thankful for can help shift your focus away from negative feelings.
  7. Watch or Read Something Positive: Watching a funny movie, a heartwarming TV show, or reading an uplifting book can provide a temporary escape from negative emotions.
  8. Engage in Self-Care: Take a relaxing bath, pamper yourself with a skincare routine, or do something else that makes you feel cared for and nurtured.
  9. Try Mindfulness: Engage in mindfulness exercises to stay present and cultivate awareness of your thoughts and feelings without judgment.
  10. Set Small Goals: Accomplishing even small tasks can give you a sense of achievement and purpose. Start with something manageable and build from there.

Remember that it’s okay to have moments when you’re not feeling your best, but if these feelings persist or worsen, it’s important to seek professional help. Your well-being is important, and reaching out to a mental health professional can provide you with the support and guidance you might need.

Wow. I’m actually rather impressed with that response. Well done, Chat GPT.

Before trying this experiment, I took a relaxing bubble bath, reached out to a friend, and posted in a group that I’m in. Not at all in a poor me, victim mentality. Rather a “Hey, I’m having a rough day today but I’ll get through it” state of mind. I wish the same for you.
