7. Get your Sweat On
It’s no surprise that physical activity will boost your endorphins (or good mood vibes). So go for a jog, a power walk, a cycle, a yoga class, or a swim—whatever it takes to get you moving and feeling better (and you will because you’ve accomplished something).
8. Treat yourself
Instead of your regular morning java; treat yourself to a fancy cappuccino, splurge on a nice lunch, put a piece of dark chocolate under your tongue and savor it, or by that colorful scarf you’ve had your eye on…you know, in the color that really brings out your eyes.
9. Get Outside
Grab your walking shoes and get outside into nature. A brisk walk and a few clean breaths of fresh air during lunch will clear out those negative cobwebs!
10. Give Back
Your bad mood can often seem trivial if you step outside of yourself and give to someone less fortunate. So volunteer at a soup kitchen, read to seniors, ask to take your pet into a children’s hospital, gather up old clothes and donate them to the Salvation Army.
11. Get out Your Good Mood Box
It might sound silly, but I made myself an emergency bad mood blasting kit! I just filled a colorful gift bag with tiny treats that I know will blast me back to positivity—like a pack of my favorite jelly beans, a mixed CD of my favorite feel-good tunes, a DVD of my favorite movie, a few sentimental photos, and a yummy scented candle.
