1.) Be the sunshine in someone’s dark clouds. Be there for people and help others. This makes you feel really good and you find that you are not the only one who suffers.

2.) Get outside. Go take a nature hike, sit by a lake, or just sit out in your yard and soak up the sun. Being outdoors does wonders for our soul.

3.) Find a new hobby or do hobbies you enjoy. When we take time to do things we enjoy, we aren’t so overwhelmed with all the things we have to do. We take a break from need to and change to want to.

4.) Stress relief. Take a nice hot bubble bath or sip a calming hot tea. Read a book, or curl up by a fire. Take time to decompress.

5.) Listen to music. Music has the power to effect our mood greatly. Listen to music that boost your mood.
