Even the most positive person you know has moments, hours or days when they feel flat and are not quite themselves. There are ways to stop feeling flat in under 10 minutes.
The way you feel is a matter of mindset, and there are many practical ways to support your mind to internally support your mood, and your body so you feel better in under 10 minutes.
- Fresh Air and Nature:
Being inside for long periods, when we are working, cleaning the house, or even during down time watching a movie can deplete our positive endorphins and change the way we feel.
It’s a mood killer.
An open balcony door, a quick walk outside, or even smelling a fresh bunch of flowers can really shift the way we feel super fast.
2. Move Your Body
There are way too many studies by over qualified people that show any sort of movement of our bodies helps the way we feel almost instantly.
Yoga is fantastic for the mind, but so is a brisk walk, or even a stretch.
The best way to guarantee you feel good every day is to have an exercise session booked into your daily routine somewhere even if it means iris gealrier every day.
3. Phone A Friend
A quick chat with someone who really knows you will life your mood and make you feel so much better in minutes. Nothing can replace an old friend, and the shared experiences you have had.
4. Eat A Treat
Yes being healthy is important, but so is rewarding yourself on occasion. Whether it is dark chocolate, ice cream, fresh strawberries or a slice of banana bread, sometimes having a treat is just what you need for a mental health boost.
5. Do a breathing exercise
These are more helpful than you may think. Soma breathing is a breathing technique done to a drum beat that relaxes and calms the subconscious and fills your body with oxygen and lifts the spirit. Check out you tube for direct links to spoken word breathing meditations.
6. Watch comedy
Again, this is a shortcut to getting our of your head and into something that will distract you, and laughing is such a great way to boost your mood in an instant.
7. Write a list of wins
We all have wins, some are major, others are tiny, but writing them down will remind you of what you HAVE achieved and what is positive in you life.
8. Hug someone
Soma breathing is a breathing technique done to a drum beat that relaxes and calms the subconscious and fills your body with oxygen and lifts the spirit. Even if you hug an animal – and studies now shoe a tree – you will feel so much better about everything.
Music is another way to instantly shift your mood. It will make you feel good, distract you and lift you up or clam you depending on what you need.
You can declutter any space you regally use – your car, makeup table to kitchen bench. Decluttering helps clear the mind and calm.
