3 Mood-Boosting Tips For When You’re Having A Bad Day

We all have bad days! And, when they come, it’s important to understand just

how much perspective matters. Keep these expert tips handy for the next time you need

to turn your mood around…


Practice Kindness


It turns out kindness really does matter! According to The Journal of Alternative

and Complementary Medicine, depressive symptoms drop by 94 percent when people

make the effort to do three kind acts a day. Whenever you’re feeling down, boost your

mood by a random act of kindness. Swing by an elderly neighbor’s house or pick up a

cup of coffee and drop-in and say hello to a friend.


Hit Pause


When you’re feeling anxious and overwhelmed, don’t be afraid to take a break.

Proper self-care is an essential part of our overall health and wellness. Sometimes, we

overextend and give, give, give to the point of exhaustion and burnout. Take a nap, go

for a walk, or hit up the mall. Reconnect with yourself and do something that makes you

happy.


Unplug


Easier said than done in this instantly connected world we live in! Technology is

wonderful, but it can also cause more stress. And, if you think about it, almost anything

can be fixed by unplugging it and hitting restart- the same is true for our emotional

wellness. When we are able to truly disconnect, we have the opportunity to really

connect with ourselves.


Of course, the symptoms of mental health conditions like depression and anxiety

aren’t always relieved by simply boosting your mood. If you have persistent feelings of

anxiety, stress, fear, or sadness- give our office a call today. We can create a

customized wellness plan that helps you find balance and inner peace.
