Lately I have been a bit distant on writing on the blog because truth be told, I haven’t been feeling my usual self. I simply thought how can I advise people on something I can’t even help myself. I took some time out for myself and felt better because I did a few of these steps to get me back into my normal state of mind.
This is how you kick those feelings in the butt:
Exercise- Getting out of bed can be one of the hardest things to do when you feel like sh*t but even doing a few stretches or a bit of cardio can boost your mood. When you exercise you release a hormone called Serotonin which boost up your mood.
Get some fresh air- This can be from taking a long walk to sitting in the park. Getting some fresh air opens you out from your confined space and makes you feel relaxed in an open space.
Read- Whenever I feel in a rut I always read as it distracts me from what my mind is actually thinking and I end up forgetting what I was feeling.
Meditate- Just doing a 10 minutes body scan can be all what you need to feel at ease.
Listen to your favourite song– Turn the speakers up and dance around to your favourite tune. Pretend you’re in a music video or dancing in front of your friends.
Healthy Eating (Fruits)- I have to put my hand up to this one, I am terrible when it comes to eating healthy ( those damn pizzas) but even starting small by having a simple banana or fruit salad, can point you in the right direction.
Journaling– Writing down everything that comes to your mind is the best way to reflect on how you feel as its all written down in front of you. This is a great way to filter out what is the cause of your mood and it also brings out some hidden emotions you never consciously realised.
Thank you for reading and always remember
