Do You Want To Elevate Your Mood? Check These 7 Tips Out

Do You Want To Elevate Your Mood? Check These 7 Tips Out

To increase your chances of feeling healthy and happy, the below tips are recommended;

1. Get Out of the House

Loneliness isn’t always directly linked to social isolation. (It’s possible to be lonely in a crowded room of people.) However, it’s often one of the factors involved. So, the best remedy is to get out of your house and take a walk.

During periods of quarantine where local governments impose rules on when and how you can leave your premises, it might not always be easy or convenient to get out. However, as long as you’re healthy and willing to follow the proper protocol that health officials have enacted, you should make it a point to get out and breathe in some fresh air.

2. Call a Friend

Can’t get out of the house? Don’t feel like being out in public? Try picking up the phone and calling a close friend. A phone call is far more powerful than a text. The simple act of hearing someone else’s voice and entering into a conversational cadence with someone you love and trust is enough to instantly make you feel better.

3. Do Something Productive

Doing something productive will also boost your mood. It doesn’t have to be monumental or highly significant – it just needs to be actionable.

Productivity gives you purpose. Having purpose in your life gives you a reason to get up every morning, and when you reach a goal your self-esteem rockets. Striving towards something gives you energy, focus and conviction; people who lack this direction are rarely happy.

Productivity could look like unloading the dishwasher, vacuuming your bedroom, drawing a picture, sorting through the clutter in your email inbox, doing a 30-minute jog on the treadmill, or mowing the lawn.

4. Try X Cranial Nerve Stimulation

X Cranial nerve is the longest and complex of the cranial nerves. It is also called the 10th cranial nerves. This nerve stimulates and produces positive physical and emotional effects. Some of the key benefits of x cranial nerve stimulation include reduced stress, improved focus, and better mood regulation.

5. Laugh a Little More

According to a study conducted by Stanford University researchers, laughter increases the level of dopamine in the brain (the chemical that elevates mood). It also increases oxygen in the body and cools down the biological stress response system. So do yourself a favour and laugh more!

6. Improve Your Diet

What if you could eat your way to a better mood? Well, perhaps you can. But unlike sticking a spoon into a tub of ice cream or demolishing a bag of Cheetos, we’re encouraging you to adopt a healthy diet. Research shows that food plays a key role in mood and irritability. Foods that are high in sugar and unhealthy fats tend to produce volatile blood sugar levels. Fresher, balanced options that are high in omega-3 fatty acids, probiotics, protein, vitamin D, fibre, and other nutrients tend to have the opposite effect.

7. Try These Relaxation Techniques

Relaxation techniques might seem a little hokey to someone who has never tried them, but they actually work wonders. In addition to reduce stress, they’re shown to elevate moods. Techniques include: progressive muscle relaxation, focused breathing, meditation and guided imagery.

Research some of these techniques and find one that interests you. Try it for one week and notice the results. If the method works, stick with it. If it doesn’t, try another technique the following week.
