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.)

1. Exercise 60th Birthday- Wow
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.

What People Are Saying. . .
I just completed Michele’s 90-day MORE program. As Michele will remind you, if you decide to study with her, things don’t happen to us; they happen for us. Michele happened for me just when I needed what she is committed to teaching. Commitment is the key word because she is always thinking of what she can do to help others live happy, successful lives filled with joy. She takes care to really understand what each of her students needs and instinctively suggests just the right message, yoga exercise, meditation, food, experience, etc., that will resonate with them to help them courageously live the life they want. Michele is a gift you deserve to give yourself when you’re finally ready to live your best, authentic life.

...I have suffered from emotional eating for 6 years, during which I have juggled and switched through different therapists and treatment options. I continued to feel "stuck" as the approaches focused on the past and why I acquired my disease. ...Michele's plan of remaining present- right here, right now- in addition to helping me choose love for myself, has allowed me to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually... Michele is a true gift from God.

The benefits have been significant. My reason for doing this yoga is to improve and maintain good health. Each morning class provides me with the motivation to get up and improve my physical and mental strength. I also think one of the greatest things about Michele’s 365 Yoga Course is I can join a class any day of the week, drop in at any time during the class and leave at a time that works for me and my schedule, from anywhere I am.
