You just wish you were in a better mood. You’ve had days like that, haven’t you? Perhaps you
tried to get yourself into a better state of mind but struggled to achieve it. Sometimes we get stuck in our own emotional
dumps and forget how easy it is to feel happier, so here are seven simple ways to lift your
mood. Many people have found them useful. Some of them may surprise you! 1. Go for a walk. Most people know that going for a short daily
walk is one of the best forms of exercise. When you are feeling down it is even more
beneficial. If you can, go into a natural environment with plants and birds. Can you
think of such a setting not? What do you notice first? The different shades of greenery, the
fresh smell of country air, the sounds of birds, or the sunlight shining through the
trees? Make it real by taking a short stroll. 2. Listen to quality music. Music can shift a listener’s state within
moments. It’s effect can be nearly magical. Dig out that CD you haven’t listened to in
ages or tune in your radio to something you’ve never listened to before. 3. Open yourself to discovering something
new. Read something (printed, not on line) different
than what you would normally watch. There are a ton of different types of magazines
can you get these days. Visit your local library or browse through a magazine rack. Pick up
or buy a magazine you wouldn’t normally buy. You may discover something wonderful. 4. Find something to laugh at. Laughter is one of the best ways to lift your
spirits. Find a humorous book, or watch a comedy. Even better, try to learn a few new
jokes and tell them to others. 5. Simple breathing meditation. Breathing meditation is a great exercise that
you can do anywhere. Simply allow yourself to sit comfortably with your back straight.
Now close your eyes and become aware of the flow of air into and out of your nostrils.
That’s all there is to it. Do this for 10-15 minutes. Notice how pleasantly surprised you
can be at how you feel afterward. 6. Doodling for the fun of it. Most people can remember when they were young
and used to doodle for hours. Kids love drawing silly little pictures. Drawing is not just
for kids or artists. Whoever you are get some pens, pencils, crayons or whatever you have
and just draw for the fun of it. Notice how your state of mind shifts. 7. Think of others less fortunate. And there you have it, 7 surprisingly easy
and quick ways to feel happier that Mr. Miyagi would approve of Like, share and subscribe for more great videos
