Boost Your Mood Today

By Angela Bekiaris

With the silly season not too far away, it might be time to boost your mood and feel better about everything. Stop stressing, worrying and freaking out – instead, relax, prioritise and make every day better with these small but very helpful tips.
Get Moving: That’s right, get off the couch and get some exercise in daily. It’s proven to boost your mood thanks to the release of endorphins in the brain which help you feel good – and hey, you’ll be killing two birds with one stone by getting your body into tip-top shape for bikini season.
Catch Up With A Buddy: There’s nothing like a good old coffee session – or girls’ night out over some cocktails – to distract you from the stress of life, and ensure some great laughs. Phone up someone who makes you smile, and who you’re guaranteed to have a fabulous time with. Make it happen!
Start A Gratitude Jar: A what, you say? Write down what you’re grateful for (trust us, there’s plenty) and place it in a jar. Months later open it up and read through every single one – you’ll see that you had a better year than you thought. Plus, experts reveal keeping a gratitude jar, or journal if you prefer, has been associated with both short-term mood improvement and a reduced risk of depression over time.
