5 Ways to Boost Your Mood in 60 Seconds

Looking for some ways to feel better fast? Here’s what we do when we need some positivity interjected into our day!

  1. Bring on that shiny, good smelling, shimmery, tasty—have you guessed it yet?? Lip gloss! Throwing on some lip gloss—bonus points for fruity flavors!— just makes it easier to smile.
  2. Turn up the volume! Music has a way of being tied closely with memories, some good and, of course, some bad. Find music that reminds you of better days and TURN IT UP! Of course, be sure to have ear buds handy if you’re in pubic. Your co-workers or housemates will be grateful!
  3. Grab that packet of gum from the bottom of your purse that you’ve been keeping for just this occasion. Chewing gum has been shown to decrease anxiety and what better way to boost your mood than axing anxious feelings.
  4. Reach for your secret weapon— sweet smelling hand lotion that you’ve tucked away in your desk drawer or tossed into your purse for a little midday pampering. When massaged onto your hands, be sure to take deep breaths and close your eyes, taking in the experience with all of your senses.
  5. My favorite tip for starting the day with a mood boost involves a hairdryer, a candle, and a lighter. Strange combination, right? When I’m getting ready for the day, I grab my favorite vanilla candle and burn it while I get ready. It’s the next best thing to coffee in the morning! You should definitely give it a try!

Try one or try them all! Share your favorite tip with your friends!
