There are many people right now who want to get up but just don’t know how to snap out of it. However, there are many tips on how to boost your mood instantly. These mood boosting tips can be done by anyone and any where. All you need is your willingness and able body to do so.
The first thing I do before my two feet’s hit the floor is Thank God for another day. That instant gratification removes any negative thoughts of not wanting to go to the office. Or whatever you may have going on that day. My grandma used to say some people went to sleep last night and didn’t wake up. You were on the “wake up list” as Tabitha Brown would say. So just being thankful to open those eyes again is something to be happy for.
After saying thank you, that sends a message to the people in your head to click the positive button. From there, tell yourself aloud, “today is going to be a great day”. I know this to work and be true because those are the two lines I say to myself every morning. Expecting to have a great day sets your mood for the day. You have made a conscious decision to be positive and have a great day.
“Hallelujah, thank you Jesus. Today is going to be a great day!!!!”
Tip #2-Open the Curtains
How you can boost your mood instantly is seeing the sun shine through your windows. Open those curtains or blinds and let the natural light shine upon you. That instantly boost your mood. Seeing the sun shine makes you feel happy and want to go out to enjoy the day. It brings a natural smile to your face and makes you stick your shoulders back.
Bonus Tip: Open some windows for some fresh air. There isn’t anything like the fresh smell of nature. Opening windows allows fresh air to flow through the entire house to awaken your spirits.
Tip#3-Freshen Yourself Up
After thanking God, and letting some sun light shine through, go freshen yourself up. Now if you have to go to work of course you’re going to get ready. But even on the weekend, if you work from home, or if you are still looking for employment spend a few minutes investing in you. For example, brushing teeth, gargling, washing face, showering, putting on a little perfume, and some lounge clothes will lift your mood instantly. I know those things seems like a no brainer , but there are some who can’t even get themselves up just to do the basics. As my father used to say “look like you care about yourself.” SPRING SELF CARE TIPS YOU CAN DO NOW
Tip#4-Clean the House
How to instantly boost your mood, clean the house and get rid of clutter. This is my all time go to. I use cleaning as a 3 in 1 deal. It’s my way of getting out of a funk, exercise, and mental therapy. When I’m feeling a little out of sorts, I go on a cleaning spree. The act of dusting, sweeping, mopping, vacuuming, and doing laundry gives me energy. I receive a boost of “I’m back.” Things are back in order which mentally puts me back in order. The house is fresh so now my mood is fresh and I’m ready tackle on the rest of the day and days.
Bonus Tip: Listening to music is an instant mood booster. On the other hand, cleaning is a great time to get in a motivation podcast or listen to something inspiring if music isn’t your thing. While cleaning or doing laundry listening to music is the best way you can escape and let go.
Tip#5-Watch Something Funny
We are surrounded with negativity. So when you sit down to watch a program, choose something that will make you laugh until you pee your pants. Laughter really is the best medicine. After watching something funny, you will have forgotten about what you were sad about. Once again, a comedic show allows you the escape to think about something else.
These tips on how to boost your mood instantly is great for anyone. It’s not just for those who aren’t doing well mentally and emotionally. These are things that I do everyday. Even on the days I don’t go into the office. These are just a few. Of course, there are many more. But the key here is to take all the tips and use them where you see fit. You can switch things up so you don’t get tired of the same ole routine.
Be you so you can be free.
