On some days, we feel extremely low, don’t we? Our moods keep changing and sometimes, sadness just takes over.
But what can we do about it?
Here are 10 proven ways to uplift your mood:
Chat up a stranger:
Research reveals that simple social engagement such as a brief conversation, making eye contact or smiling can immediately prep up your mood. So go on, try chatting up an unknown person (except the creeps) and see your mood improve immediately.
This old trick still works. Stand in front of the mirror and just smile. We bet it will bring back your confidence and make you feel better.
Drink some coffee or caffeinated tea:
As revealed by research, caffeine can impact your mood positively unless you’re one of those whose metabolism will react to it. So go ahead and make yourself a cuppa.
Music has a powerful impact over mood. So make sure you tune to some favorites you can tap or dance to. You’ll feel the difference almost immediately.
Look outside the window:
Open the window, let in some light, and peer out. Because natural light is proven to be crucial in regulating your sleep, metabolism, and mood.
Take a walk:
Head out to the nearest park to meander in the green spaces, which is again a great way to feel fine again.
Ring a good friend:
Emotional well-being is directly influenced by deep social connections; a heart-to-heart chat with a good friend will really help.
Do some moderate exercise:
Light exercise like Zumba, a funny dance, some skipping, jumping, or hopping can really work wonders; again as revealed by research.
Watch some kind or funny animal or baby videos:
You know the pups watching TV, or the baby tumbling over; awww...these distractions will really give you some relief.
Get lots of sleep:
Doctors recommend at least 8 hours of undisturbed sleep in the night so you wake up feeling fresh and happy for the day.
