How to instantly feel better? I have 3 easy ways which always make me feel better. Just before Easter I was feeling very good about myself, my work flow was steady and I would wake up with a very positive attitude each morning. I took some time off to just chill during the Easter but somehow I fell into a “funk” and couldn’t seem to get out of it for the most of the past week.
I knew that I was in a need of a quick “feel good” medicine and I have 3 bullet proof ways to lift my spirits up and instantly feel better. Whenever I notice that I’m getting more anxious about my daily life, normal tasks take me extra time or effort to complete or when I’m just “down” for no specific reason, I realise that it’s time to do something about it.
My ways to instantly feel better are:
- PUT ON A FULL ON MAKEUP/ OUTFIT – Yep! I know that a suit doesn’t make a human more or less worthy but there is some kind of magic in getting all dressed up and looking bit extra dressed up than you are usually. When I look good, I also feel good. I know that to some, this might sound too vain but it’s not like that. Somehow red lipstick, fave pair of shoes and a bit more dressed up outfit are my natural self esteem boosters and give me more confidence to deal with anything on any given day.
- SMILE AND MAKE SOMEBODY SMILE – Here we come to that genuine, heartfelt moment of instantly feeling better without much effort. Just smile more people, I swear to you that a smile a day can change the world. Whenever I’m down, I try to remind myself to just smile for no specific reason and find happiness in the smallest of things. When I do that and esp. when I just smile to a random stranger and get a smile back, my, at first “forced” smiles are flowing naturally for the rest of the day. You guessed it right, my mood has shifted and I’m instantly feeling better. There is nothing better than giving a smile and making somebody smile. By making others smile, you make your day better instantly too.
- GET OUTSIDE FOR A LONG WALK – This is my ultimate advice on how to instantly feel better – go for a walk! Yes, stretch your legs a bit, breathe the fresh air, clear out your thoughts and spend some time surrounded by the sea views or beautiful greenery of the forest. It’s good to be by yourself, with your own thoughts and meditate at the same time while moving and simultaneously doing well for your body and your brain.
Let me know what are the ways how you make yourself feel better instantly? I know that the real problems and unsatisfaction can have much deeper roots and also require much more work on getting them fixed but for the short while, when you just can’t seem to get to feel better, try all you can think of to get yourself feel better. Even the simplest of problems might look huge and unsolvable if you have the wrong attitude and are feeling down.
Have a great beginning of the week dear readers! Much love to each of you!
