When you’re feeling down, bored, sad or low, try to get up and get moving. I know it’s a lot getting out of bed on a low day, but if you don’t do it, you’re only going to feel worse. Speaking from experience, I can say that the hardest part for me when I feel down is getting dressed and going out of the house.
Moving doesn’t have to mean an hour of weight lifting exercise that leaves you sweaty and tired. You can start with a walk through the park, or going for a bike ride, or taking some time to stretch while you’re reading a book, or just going for an ice-cream. It doesn’t matter what you do as long as you’re moving your body. Movement stimulates your body’s natural feel-good chemicals called endorphins that provide a mood boost. And I’m sure you know that exercise increases energy levels, reduces stress and much more. Any kind of movement (exercise) can help a lot when you’re feeling down.
When you have a bad day, do something that makes you feel good and takes your mind off of things that are bothering you, stressing you out, or otherwise occupying your mind.
