HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR MOOD…NOW!

➠ Go Outside:  Researchers say we need at least 2 hours of outside time per week for physical and mental well-being. 


➠ Talk to a friend:  We need social interactions to stay emotionally and physically healthy. Loneliness is associated with a reduction in lifespan equivalent to what you’d see if you smoked 15 cigarettes a day. So, call your best friend or someone you haven’t spoken to in a while.

➠ Spend some relaxing time alone:  We need alone time too. That includes time away from electronic devices. Take just 15 minutes to be quiet, alone and peaceful. 

➠ Exercise:  When you do, you sleep better, feel less stress, and improve your mood. Even a short burst of exercise can improve your energy level. 

➠ Eat a healthy meal: Multiple studies have found a correlation between a diet high in refined sugars and impaired brain function — and a worsening of symptoms of mood disorders, such as depression. 

➠ Listen to Music:  Research shows that “music seems to ‘selectively activate’ neurochemical systems and brain structures associated with positive mood, emotion regulation, attention and memory.” Generally, music that’s slower with more gentle chord progressions and longer notes is best. 

➠ Go to bed early:  This could be the most important one. Poor sleep habits lead to adverse psychological and physical health outcomes. A nap during the day can also be beneficial.
