Boredom and depression can often cause us to plummet into the realms of gloominess and despair. The good news is because they are just passing moods, they can be done away with, in healthy and constructive ways which make us grow!
Here are 3 ways to uplift your mood instantly:
Play your favorite song: Music is the easiest and the quickest way to uplift your mood. With the convenience that technology and gadgets provide, it takes less than a minute to recall a song that soothes your senses and calms your mind and jazzes up your spirits, all in all, makes you feel alive. So what is that favorite song of yours which you love the sound of, so much that your heart lights up if you ever hear it on the radio?
Call a friend: There is almost nothing as heartwarming as sharing woes with a friend you trust and who understands you. By the time you say goodbye or hang up on the phone, you can’t even remember why you were upset in the first place. A good conversation with a good friend is priceless, and something we should engage in more often. Can you think of who your 3 AM friends are?
Coloring books for adults: First heard of only a few years ago, coloring books for adults have come to be one of the easiest creative tools for stimulating the mind, and uplifting the mood. Filling the intricate spaces of an elaborate mandala with colours of your choice can be an engaging stress-buster. All you need is a pack of sketch pens, color pencils or crayons, and of course, a book or a sheet of artwork waiting to be filled with color.
