We all have those days, when you find yourself in a bit of funk. Getting stuck in a bad mood can be easy, and sometimes we don't always have a bath tub close by for us to zen out in. So, to avoid slaughtering the next person who looks at you funny we have put together a list of 10 quick fixes to get you back to your happy place.
- Listen to music, good music.
And crank it up. Music stimulates blood flow, triggers happy memories and has been linked to reducing the signs of depression. I recommend tuning to the HUSTL. spotify and listening to a PACE playlist from top to bottom – warning, you will feel like a boss ass b*tch. If calming music is your thing, you do you.
- Go for a quick 10 minute walk around the block.
Trust us when we say nothing bad will ever come of stepping away from the screen and getting some fresh air. Hello serotonin!
- Literally google something funny, and laugh.
- Dance party, guests = you.
*que PACE playlist
- Call someone you love.
Boost your sense of belonging and purpose by phoning a friend, even if its only for 5 minutes to see what they had for breakfast.
- Book yourself a self-care appointment.
My favourite is eyebrows, because when your eyebrows are in check everything else just seems to fall into place.
- Sit in the sun and eat a banana.
Just trust us on this one.
- Quick breathing exercise.
Slowing down our breathing sends messages to our brain to relax, ultimately de-stressing the body and making us feel human again.
I love you always,
