• For Foodies: Eat something decadent, something savory and full of flavor (not sugar). Dark chocolate. There is a scientific evidence behind the reasons why people reach for chocolate when they are feeling blah. And what's better than home-baked, warm, gooey brownies to go oooh, mmm, yummy mmm! This dark chocolate brownie is made with healthier ingredients, I might add.

  • For Music Addicts: Create a feel-good music list. Whether it’s soothing music to calm your nerves or dance music to get your bootie swerving, compile your very favorites that instantly make you happier. I have a variety of content playlists on Spotify depending on my mood. I have a “Morning Coffee Track” list to boost my morning mood.

  • For Homebodies: Clean sheets. Fresh, just-out-of-the-dryer bed sheets can up your mood instantly. Doing simple house chores like washing and then putting new sheets on the bed can help you be in the moment. Plus, you will be happy falling asleep tucked in a clean blanket and sheets at night.

  • Nature Enthusiasts: Escape to a beautiful sunset. It happens daily, yet we are often too busy to witness this breathtaking, natural beauty. The peacefulness and anticipation of the night are very tranquil. Watching the sunrise, of course, is just as fantastic in a different way. I just can’t seem to get up quite that early, though!

  • For Everyone: Set "happiness" goals. Goals to follow your passion or whatever it is that makes you happy is an easy way to boost your mood. Even jotting down small to-dos or short-term plans to accomplish the bigger goal can make you feel better. It’s a perfect time to visualize a better you and an improved life. You will feel more at ease as well as inspired to finish what you set out to do.
