It’s totally OK to be in a bad mood from time to time. But knowing some ways to get yourself out of such a state of mind is important too and really helpful. So I gathered my top 5 tips on how to pull yourself out of a poorly mood and cheerful again. So pour yourself some tea and prepare yourself for 5 tips to be briskly. And don’t forget to share your tips at the end! xx
Allow yourself to feel it
We all have those times we don’t feel ourselves. And it’s totally fine. It’s human! That’s why we need to allow ourselves to feel those feelings. Let them out. Staying in with a girlfriend, eating ice-cream, talking and sometimes even crying. Don’t be sorry to feel the way you feel. Accept it. Live it for a moment (as I said a night in with your girl or eventually even for a little longer time period). And don’t be sorry about it!
It’s proven that working out lifts the mood. So next time you feel a little sulky. Put on your trainers and go for a run, play tennis with a friend, or take a yoga class. Why? Working out relieves stress. Stress hormones are THE WORST and put you in a bad mood. So working out actually cheers you up. Another reason to work out when you’re in a bad mood is, you’ll feel so much better afterward. You did something for your health. You’re powered out. And you probably lost some calories *win-win* haha.
Rewatch your favorite TV shows
Yesss. I love me a Netflix marathon. It always sets my mood and get’s me comfortable. Especially when rewatching my favorite shows/series. And shows that have given you pleasure in the past are most likely to cheer you up again.
Some of my favorite shows are:
- Gilmore Girl
- The Office
- New Girl
- The Simpsons
- OC California
Have a snack
By this, I mean like a really yummy snack.I talk dessert here. Treat yourself to a donut, some ice cream or cake. Believe me, it’ll jolly you in no time! There are little things that give you such a pleasure as eating your favorite dessert. Especially when you’re not one of those persons who enjoy dessert on a daily basis, your favorite treat can give you an extra little high. Do you get what I mean? The idea is to derive pleasure from simple things such as eating your favorite dessert. So grab a cupcake and feel good.
Puppies Puppies Puppies
Who doesn’t adore puppies? No matter which breeds. Puppies are the cutest thing on earth and I believe they’re supposed to make humans happy. Haha. So the next time you’re in a bad mood visit a friend with a puppy (*note, every dog is a puppy!). And if you don’t know anybody with a doggo… visit an animal shelter. The people who work at animal homes always like to see people come along to spend time with the dogs and the puppies are so excited for some sweet attention. And maybe, you’ll adopt one you become friends with someday?!
For the ones who don’t have the chance to cuddle a real dog. The internet is your friend! Go online and type in Puppy compilation.
My favorite is this one Funny & cute golden retriever
