Our wellbeing is so important for our physical and mental health. We sure know that life can be a bit of a rollercoaster at times, making it hard to stay present, happy and calm. So today, we thought we would put together 10 ways you can improve your mood today.
Let's start simple: make sure that you are drinking enough water. Water is so important in enabling our bodies to carry out all of its functions, so ensure that you are drinking around 2 litres per day (about 6-8 glasses).
2. Are you getting enough sleep?
Sorry, still boring but sleep is another extremely important factor in your overall wellness. You need to allow your mind and body to recharge - they advise that adults need between 7 and 9 hours per night.
3. Balanced diet
While we're at it, a healthy balanced diet wouldn't hurt either. Maintain good health and help you feel your best. Read this general healthy eating advice.
4. Make time for yourself
This one is up for interpretation. Spend some time each day, whether 5 minutes or 5 hours, doing something that you want to do.
5. Fresh air
Remember to break up your day with some fresh air. Again, another one that is good for your health but can also help to clear the mind. Taking a bit of time throughout your day to go for a walk or sit outside for 5 minutes can help massively!
6. Move your body
Get your body moving with a bit of stretching or try yoga. Stretching keep your muscles flexible, strong and healthy whilst yoga is a fantastic practice for both mind and body.
7. Talk about your challenges
Talk to others about the things that you are going through, things that you have struggled with.
They say there are many health benefits to reading and that picking up a good book can improve your mood, ease any tension and stimulate creativity! We’ll even give you a bonus 7.5 tip: read self development books.
9. Hot and cold aqua therapy
In other words, turn the shower from hot to cold the next time you're in the shower. Its good for your skin, pores and keeps you on your toes!
10. Children and animals
They say to never work with children or animals but we disagree! Now, you don’t have to work with them but we can all learn a lot from the innocence of children and the pureness of animals.
