6 Top Ways to Put You in a Good Mood FAST
The holidays are great but can stress you out and leave you feeling exhausted or depressed. So here are 6 great antidotes! (These are Glamour Magazine’s top 6 from a list of 50.)
It’s just as good as antidepressants! A single workout can give you a boost, reducing stress and releasing feel-good endorphins.
2. Eat Breakfast
It will prevent grumpiness and help you perform. No, a single cup of coffee (or tea or soda) doesn’t count.
3. Speak UP
Being assertive enhances self confidence and shuts down feelings of helplessness, says Elizabeth Lombardo, PhD. Plus, there’s that little perk of actually getting what you want.
4. Do Less
So many people think, “If I do more, than I’ll be happier,” says celebrity life coach Sherri Ziff Lester. “There’s too much doing. We need to do more nothing- just take time to be.”
5. Focus On Making Memories (or What to Spend Money On)
Researchers found that 57% of people reported they were happier when they spent money on an experience (like a vacation or a class), while only 34% reported being happier after buying stuff.
6. Go Outside
Remember that big room? With the blue roof and fresh air? Sometimes the floor is green? Just 5 minutes walking in the great outdoors has beneficial effects. Notice we said “walking” not “walking and texting.”
One great way Glamour didn’t mention is to take an “inner shower” and clear out the stress, stinking-thinking, and exhaustion. CLICK HERE to take our Free 14-day trial of dial-UP Yoga.
It will put you in a good mood FAST. Guaranteed.
