1. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER
Keeping water in our bodies is essential. If drinking water on a daily basis is hard for you then there are plenty of options including infusing water with fruit and yummy herbs which should greatly help. Or using some non sugar added flavoring drops, they also come in many flavors.
2. GET COMFORTABLE
Dress for comfort. Being comfortable in your own skin and clothes is important. It can also make you feel kinda funky when you’re not. So when you can, put on sweats or stretchy jeans and a comfortable breathable shirt. Lay into a blanket or comfy couch, a sturdy chair and sit up straight or a shawl blanket like my roommate gave me recently and now it’s my favorite morning item of clothing.
3. LISTEN TO UPBEAT OR CALMING JAMS
Music is my therapy and I believe in it’s power to change your mood and help you through things. If you’re in a tough spot, having a good day or a bad day or want to get emotions out- a new playlist is a great way to do it. I have recently found a lot of YouTubers and Vloggers are sharing more of their quarantine tuned an I’ve been saving them ALL.
4. DISTRACT YOUR MIND- PRACTICE GRATEFULNESS
When you’re stressed or feeling low it helps to change your mindset and think of positive things. I try to write down 5-10 things I’m grateful for especially when I’m having a hard time or am slow to show it.
5. USE YOUR WOO WOO METHODS (CRYSTALS, FAITH, TAROT, ETC)
If this point isn’t for you that’s okay but I like to reach for things that make me examine my life and give me some answers I’m seeking for security. So at times, my tarot deck is exciting and my crystals make me feel comforted. Sometimes I write out my worries and fears and getting them all onto paper helps a lot too.
6. CLEAN UP YOUR SPACE
Start tidying something, move onto something else. Do the dishes, take the garbage out and vacuum a room. I begin to clean my bedroom and then pick up clothes and do laundry. It’s funny how momentum continues once you begin. Then sooner than you know it your space is clean and you can breathe again.
7. AIR YOUR ISH OUT
Open the windows! Let the fresh air in- it will help you breathe and make everything feel new again. Sometimes our spaces and heads can get musty and we don’t even notice it. I would also add using a air freshener or melt some delicious wax scents can be another great way to refresh a room.
8. HUG A PERSON (OR A PET)
Hugs are healing so make time each day to hug someone you love for a matter of 10-20 seconds. It will ease your stress levels, relax muscles, increase serotonin and dopamine, reduce tension and body aches, increase mood and ease depression.
9. MOVE THE DIAL TOWARDS A GOAL
Feeling stuck is hard and what a way to raise your vibe and mood than by making just a step or two in the right direction. (Do one thing that moves you closer to the goal- Jess Massey-Hustle Sanely) And I swear it will help and you’ll feel like a rock star. If you just answer 3 emails, write one post, call back that important person or finish that budget report- whatever it is- just take your time and it’ll be finished before you know it!
10. EAT HEALTHY AND NOT JUST WELL
Be smart with this one and eat intuitively. Healthy greens, a protein and starch, otherwise called a balanced meal. Eating badly is a trigger and it will make things in your life slide real fast. Snack in a way that’s kind to your body, I am not good at this but whenever I can, I really try to change that. I feel like I have a pretty good balance of nutrition and enjoyable junk in my own lifestyle.
With all these tips you can avoid the moody blues and keep feeling your very best which is exactly what we all want right now. It’s easy to let everything get too much and bring us all down, stuck in that yucky, dragging, lazy place in our lives. But the whole point is not to stay there, there is still so much to explore, more to get done everyday with plenty of ways to keep your vibe high.
