In these times of uncertainty, it can be easy to feel down in the dumps. It is totally fine to feel this way, but this feeling cannot last forever. The social distancing we are going through right now isn't ideal for anyone. Missing out on school life and work is not the end of the world. We have more free time on our hands right now than we could have ever imagined. That can be depressing, but it doesn't have to be. There are so many ways you can lift your spirits right now and in the days to come.
Go look at old photo albums
Reliving old memories is such a fun way to boost your mood. It is amazing how a simple photograph can leave a huge smile on your face as you cherish the memories you have.
Write in a journal
If you have something weighing down on your mind, write about it. Write down whatever you are feeling. Make a list of what you are grateful for. Make a bucket list. Write whatever is floating around in your mind.
Laughter is good for the soul. We have all heard that saying before, but it is the truth. Laughing can make whatever you are upset about not as bad as you think it is.
Step outside and enjoy the outdoors
There is nothing quite like the outdoors, no matter what the weather is like. A beautiful sunny day is perfect for a walk in the park. A wet day can be perfect for stepping out and dancing in the rain. Enjoy the days you are given while you can.
This is so simple, yet so many people forget to stop and do so. Setting aside time in your day to take a couple of breaths and reminding yourself that what ever you are going through will be fine can really make a difference in your day. What ever the problem is in your life, it will pass, so just breathe.
