How To Make Your Day Better… Feeling blue? uninspired? Like you want to crawl back into bed? We all have those days, but each day is special and it would be a shame to wast one, so here is how to make your day better in 5 steps. No matter if it is morning, afternoon or night, take a moment to do these 5 things and give your mood a boost so you can do something with your day.
1. Pick your favourite upbeat tunes and turn up the volume.
Music affects your mood, so no deep brooding songs and save the heavy metal for another time. Just as music affects us, so does the weather, now we can’t turn on the sunshine but we can turn on a light or make a room feel cozy. So set an atmosphere that you want to be in, this also includes getting the lighting right and maybe even lighting a candle or spraying a room scent… light, sound and scent.
2. Get your blood pumping and your heart racing.
Just 10 star jumps will do the trick to get your heart rate up . It is very well know that exercise causes the release of chemicals in the brain, that ease pain and lift spirits. So try to do some sort of exercise every day. There are plenty of great workouts you can follow along with on youtube or go for a brisk walk or run. But for a quick boost, 10 star jumps is perfect.
Your car needs fuel to work and so do you. Make yourself a quick healthy snack, a bowl of fruit or a smoothie is perfect… put down that junk food!
4. Make someone else’s day better
A simple act of kindness can make you feel better about yourself, so go out of your way to spread the love. It can be as simple as writing a thoughtful comment on someones blog or going all out with a surprise for someone special. Anything big or small can make someone else’s day.
