5 Ways To Better Your Mood/Get Through The Day
Now, we all know we have those days where it’s hard to get up during the day, because you’re cranky and sometimes it’ll wheel on throughout the day and it’ll make you go crazy. Well, there are a few things to help you out throughout the day or throughout the week to keep you upbeat. Trust me when I say, i been through it, but after I tried these options I been feeling so much better!
1. A WARM BATH
Yes, I know “Really? A warm bath? There has to be something girl!” I know, but hear me out! Sometimes, a bath is the best bet, because one of top reasons people are in a bad mood, is because they are tense. Their body is very uncomfortable but sometimes a bath is so much better than a shower. A bath will calm your muscles and wipe away that attitude. Also, add bubbles for a fresh scent of flowers or cotton candy. Also, it’s good to add a bit of Epsom salt, it is said that Epsom Salt is good with relaxing the muscles and pain in your body.

Some say, "Dancing brings out the happiness within." Whether it be a silly dance or something more serious (like a career), it brings down the stress throughout the day. When you don’t bring a little more to the table when it comes to comfort, you can’t be tense and shy when you’re down. Even at a party, say you came in a bad mood, put your pride aside and get up! Show them what you got!
3. LISTENING TO MUSIC
Continuing on from the last idea, sometimes just sitting back and listening to some music will either have you relaxed or lit. Either way it’ll calm your mind and bring you out of that funk. (Don’t listen to sad music of course!) Maybe listen to some “PPAP” (Pineapple-Pen-Apple-Pen). Yes it’s weird. It's actually VERY weird, but it’ll definitely have you laughing or smiling!
4. READ A BOOK
Reading helps relieve stress as well. As you’re reading through a story, most of the time you put yourself in the story. It gives your mind a different set. Almost like a play. Like you’re in a movie or sitcom. Most of the time, the story will bring about real life situations. This sometimes delivers a sense of understanding and varies in mental interpretations. It will have you thinking more on the future of the story, than yourself. TRY IT! I've done it.
5. GO FOR A RUN/WALK/EXERCISE
Getting some fresh air is 85% of the time the BEST way to clear your head. Maybe walking a distance, somewhere you have never been to before, could help you think on a situation deeply. Sometimes it’ll just help with thoughts clouding your mind from bills, what you should cook for dinner or maybe even, should you get your nails done or get your hair done. This is where music also comes into play. You can mix it up. Exercise and listen to music to either get you pumped or calm your nerves. Even do yoga for a change! It’ll bring you peace of mind.
