You lost your car keys again? Late for work because of something nonsensical? Had to wait for customer service for two hours just to get a simple question answered?
We know how it feels.
It’s not easy to stay positive and sunny when a cascade of things are simply going wrong. You’re only human and it’s only but natural to feel “the blues” when nothing seems to be going right.
It’s stressful. It’s hard. It’s simply no fun at all. But it does not have to stay that way.
If you are looking for a major mood boost on a really bad day, here are natural ways to cope.
Get Your Daily Dose Of Sunshine
When you are having a really bad day, it’s tempting to shut the door, draw the curtains and sleep all day. However, no matter how tempting it may seem to stay in bed, keep in mind that adding a bit of sunshine to your life can actually lift your mood. If you can, it’s a good idea to go out of your house, enjoy the sunshine and improve the situation. Better yet, spend time with nature. Enjoy a good walk in a park or - if you have a green thumb - spend time gardening.
Sit Down And Write (About Good Things)
No matter how bad the situation may seem, there is probably still something that you should be thankful for. When you think that all the world is against you, sit down and reflect on all the good things happening in your life. Focusing on the silver lining is not easy, but if you always do this, you will realize that some things are going right. Keep track of the good stuff and the good people who make your life easier. Try to make it a habit to sit down at the end of the day and write down a list of things that you are thankful for.
You’ve probably heard this before but we’re not gonna stop saying it. It’s effective. It’s convenient. And it’s cheap. We want you to reap the benefits too.
It is scientifically proven that exercise helps release feel-good hormones. It makes you feel like you are in control your body. You will feel amazing after pushing your body to move. Plus you get to enjoy the numerous health benefits as well. Exercise is known to help improve blood pressure, sugar and cholesterol levels. Generally speaking, any sort of physical activity will help, but it’s best to choose something you love and to commit to doing it at least three times a week.
Have A Bite Of Dark Chocolate
Okay, maybe two bites.Chocolate is known to help promote happiness. Dark chocolate in particular contains serotonin, which helps improve mood. Don’t forget to consume in moderation. Don’t make it a habit to consume chocolate just because you are feeling bad.
