Are you suffering from blue days? Here are 5 ways to combat that dreading non-energetic mood
If you have been waking up feeling a little less vibrant than your usual self, you’re not alone.
A combination of this cold-gloomy weather, short days, post-holiday, post-holidays distress, slowly disappearing New Year’s Resolutions and just the simple fact that it’s January, all conspire to drag down people’s moods. But instead of caving into this sorrow, here are several suggestions on how to turn your mood around today – and for the rest of the cold winter season.
Make a Cup of Hot Tea
Tea has many health benefits – and helping to get through a rough day is one of them. Because of its antioxidant powers, tea can help relax your mind, detox your body, boost your energy, and fight cold symptoms that might be coming your way. Plus, what better way to keep your hands and body temperature warm during the day.
Take a Social Break
We can get through anything in life with a good friend on our life. Whether it’s stopping by a co-worker’s desk, at a neighbor’s home, or making a quick phone call to a friend or relative, taking a few minutes out of our day and chat with those who put us in a good mood which can make all the difference in your having a good day.
Make a Hearty Meal to Share
Gloomy days are the perfect excuse to stay in for dinner and cook up a warm yet nutritious meal. Studies have proven that regular servings of whole fruits and vegetables tend to lift the mood.
Take Care of Yourself
There’s no better time of the year than now to take care of you. Whether it’s by meditation, taking a walk, reading motivational quotes, or writing in your journal, today is the day to take the time to do what helps you relax.
Share Positive Thoughts
Whether it’s by Facebooking, tweeting or talking to those around you, share positive quotes or happy pictures which can help to ease the negatives on days like today for you and others.
