All of these tips are pretty simple and easy to put into practice, but it’s the simple things make me happy and make a difference long term.
Take a shower, or hot bath. The warm water will relax your muscles and the running water can be very calming to your mind. Use your favourite products and afterwards you will feel refreshed and amazing!
Phone a friend. Calling a good friend or loved one to connect and have a chat is such a boost booster.
Listen to upbeat music. Listen to your favourite songs that make you feel good and bring back amazing memories. This always motivates me and there’s a handful of songs that I know can always bring a smile to my face.
Take time out. Spending time outdoors is a great way of brightening your mood. Get some natural light and fresh air.
Sweat it out. Exercise gives you something to focus on other than the negative thoughts spinning around your head. Plus you will get a boost from released endorphins.
Make a cup of tea. There’s something so soothing and comforting about a mug of tea. My favourites are green, peppermint and ginger.
Prepare yourself a healthy meal or snack. Something nourishing that you love and will make you feel amazing. Your body really is a temple, show it some love.
Be Grateful. Write down the things that make you happy and that your grateful for.
Online Detox. Go through your phone and social media accounts and delete anyone who doesn’t make you feel good, lifted or inspired.
Buy some fresh flowers. It’s no secret how much I love flowers if you follow me on Instagram. I love to start my week with a fresh bunch of flowers. I think it’s a pretty inexpensive way to brighten your home and make you feel good. I just feel happier when there are flowers and greenery in the room.
Pamper. Use your favourite face mask or give yourself a manicure
Make plans. Something you can get excited about. Even something as simple as a coffee with a friend.
Do something nice for somebody else. Doing an act of kindness for someone else is a great way to get a mood boost.
Smile. Even if you don’t feel like it, smile. ” When you laugh or smile it triggers a part of your brain that actually makes you happy”
Walk it out. A short walk gets the heart pumping and will decrease stress.
Of course I still I with lots of ups and downs, but I can share what works for me when I need a boost with hopes that it may work for you as well.
