10 Daily Habits to Boost Your Mood
Hey there! Today I want to talk about boosting your daily mood! A lot of times, we can feel like we’re stuck in a rut and that can bring down our mood. So, here are 10 daily habits that you can start to boost your mood.
1 // Drink water first thing in the morning
This will not only help with your mood but also your digestion system, which will lead to a better mood. Our body is mostly water but sometimes we don’t give it what it needs.
2 // Write a daily gratitude journal
In a world that’s always focused on the next big thing, and where “the hustle” is praised, make sure you take time and remind yourself what you’re thankful for. Many times we’re so focused on what we want, that we forget about what we already have.
3 // Make your bed when you wake up
It’s easy to just get up and get ready for the day without making your bed, but that doesn’t do you any good. When you make your bed first thing in the morning, you start your day organized and ready to take on the day. Plus, knowing that your bed is neat, makes you happier.
4 // Daily affirmations
Daily affirmations are a great way to start your day. Affirmations help you start your day with positivity instead of negativity. They can also help give you a boost of confidence as well!
5 // Take a walk
Sometimes it’s easy to feel stuck, especially when your job may have you sitting for most of the day. Make sure you take time out of your day to walk around and stretch your legs for a little bit. Not only is it good for your mood, but good for your health.
6 // Journal
Journaling is a good way to keep your mental health in check. You can either go off of specific prompts, or you can just write about how your day went. Either way, it’s good to write things out and get them out of your head, so you can keep a clear mind.
7 // Let natural light in
Natural light is an easy way to boost your mood, it’s also healthier than fluorescent lights. Natural light is soft but also bright, no one wants to do anything in the dark. So, let the light in!
8 // Practice self-care and love
It’s important to make sure you spend some time to focus on yourself. Even the most social need to recharge their batteries. Make sure you’re taking time for yourself every once in a while and recharge. Try to take time once a week just for yourself. Need some ideas? Here are 15 ways to practice self-care.
9 // Get ready every day
Even though there are some days where lounging in pajamas sounds like the best day ever, it’s not something that should be done every day. Getting up and putting actual clothes on helps you feel motivated to get things done.
10 // Soak in the sun
Sunlight is good for our bodies. It provides us with vitamin D and warmth. I love stepping outside and feeling the warm sun on my arms, it makes me feel refreshed!

I had a gratitude journal all through 2018 and it was LIFE CHANGING

I agree with making your bed! I also like to keep my room tidy, and when I’m feeling a tootle low I have a massive clear out, which helps too! Having a nice breakfast and taking my time to eat is something that put me in a good mood also lol
