8 Tricks To Make a Bad Day Better
Let’s face it – not every day can be a GREAT day.
We all have bad days. Whether it is a succession of little things going wrong all day or one big catastrophe – bad days create bad moods.
And while we can’t always control the negative circumstances – we actually do have the power to control (or at least influence) our moods!
These 8 simple tricks can help bust a bad mood even on your worst day.
😊 Smile. Studies show that the simple act of smiling can actually significantly boost your mood and release tension.
😊 Smell lavender or citrus. Both natural scents have components that release stress and increase your calm.
😊 Think of what you are grateful for.. Even write it down. When things aren’t going well, it’s easy to only focus on the negative. Taking a minute to write down the good things will help change your perspective.
😊 Get cozy. According to research, climbing under a soft blanket or putting on your comfiest sweats can actually boost your mood based on the contact with soft fabric.
😊 Blast an upbeat song. And sing it at the top of your lungs. Music releases feel-good endorphins. And belting it out can release some stress too!
😊 Get some sunshine. Sunshine boosts your serotonin. Serotonin boosts your mood.
😊 Stretch. We carry stress in our muscles. Releasing physical tension can help release emotional tension.
😊 Do something for others. It’s hard not to feel good when you are making someone else happy.
