Spring is about renewal. Unfortunately, seasonal themes don’t always correlate with your mood! If you’re feeling sluggish and less than renewed lately, it’s time to put some “spring” into your step by adopting a few “refreshing” habits, backed by clinical research, of course!
Free yourself from dreaded ruts by:
Moving just a little
If you’re feeling bogged down by work or overwhelmed with life in general, try changing your channel, so to speak, with a quick activity, whether it’s walking up a flight of stairs or strolling around your office block. Little spurts of exercise are clinically proven to help you hit your mental reset button and boost your energy.
Mixing it up
Are you bored? You know what they say—only boring people are bored! Keep your life interesting and boost your mood in the process by changing up your routine so you feel excited and have something new to look forward to! Driving to work a different way, eating a new fruit at breakfast, or taking up a hobby you’ve always dreamed of are just a few worthwhile ideas for adding some variety and spice to your life without breaking the bank.
Staying in the moment
Ever feel like your head is a bad neighborhood? You can blame your thoughts, which take you down roads that aren’t good for you, filling you with fear and dread! The psychological experts have it all figured out. The key to feeling happier and escaping your “bad neighborhood” is living in the moment. Easier said than done, right? While you can’t prevent thoughts, you can change your reaction to them. The next time you start going down a bad road, simply change your focus to something tangible in front of you, like your hands. With a little practice, you’ll soon become a pro at focusing your energies on positive things.
