How to cheer yourself up | My top tips

Thursday, 6 July 2017

We all get a bit down from time to time, whether it's stress related, family related or just simply that time of the month. It's easy to sit and dwell on these feelings, but that's probably the worst thing to do as you start to overthink everything. Lately, I’ve had a few family bits that have left me feeling a bit flat, but using the following tips, I’ve helped to lift this mood.

1./Listen to your favourite music
This is a sure one to put me in a good mood. Ideally I'd blast the music whilst I'm at home and can have a really good dance to shake off all my worries, but often I'm at work and I don't think my colleagues would appreciate me dancing round the office! Instead, I plug in my earphones and put on my favourite tunes which soon cheers me up.

2./Surround yourself with friends and loved ones
Whenever I'm feeling down I always make sure I surround myself with my loved ones because they're sure to cheer me up. Not only that, but I don't think it's good to be on your own when you're feeling low as you just dwell on your feelings, bottling them up and not chatting them through. That's why it's great to have friends and family around to help raise your spirits.

3./Eat well
I think it's always good to try and eat healthily, but when you're feeling down it's so easy to comfort eat in an attempt to cheer yourself up. When I'm feeling low, I try to consciously watch what I eat because comfort eating is never going to cheer me up, if anything it makes me feel worse. Eating healthily will make you feel better in both body and mind (cheesey, but true!) 

I'm not the world biggest fan of exercise, but when you're feeling a bit down exercise is always good for releasing endorphins and making you feel better. When I'm going through a tough patch, I always try and do as much exercise as possible because I know I'll feel better for doing it.

5./Wear your favourite clothes and make up
Whenever I'm feeling down, I always pop on my favourite outfits and do my make up nicely, using some of my favourite products. I find this boosts my confidence and makes me feel loads better. It's amazing how something as simple as clothes and make up can make you feel.

Whilst superficial, these are some of my top tips that I work through when I'm feeling a bit low. What do you like to do to cheer yourself up?
