Do you have any tricks that can change your mood around in an instant? Here’s a short list of some of the things I do to snap myself out of a little funk in my day.
Get the heck outside and let the sun hit you in the face
Listen to a podcast you enjoy
I typically do crime podcasts, which may be weird since they’re quite depressing. I just get so caught up in the story and it takes my mind off of whatever is bothering me.
Blast some cheery music
My go-to right now is pretty much anything by Lizzo, especially Truth Hurts and Juice. Seriously. Try to not dance, I dare you.
Run, walk, jog, bike, rollerblade… whatever tickles your fancy. You’ll feel much better, even if it’s a quick 20 minutes.
Hug a friend or loved one. Just a little bit of affection can go a long way. This applies only if you’re the hugging type, I suppose.
Kitchen dance party
Dance around like a fool and give yourself some energy.
This means something different to all of us. Whether it’s doing a mini spa night and bath, or buying yourself the shoes you’ve had your eyes on for the past month. Treat Yourself!
Organize a space
Maybe colour code your closet or organize your junk drawer. This small feat will help you feel accomplished.
