9 Ways to Feel Like Yourself Again
Some days are better than others. Some days are just flat out terrible. Here’s a little list to get you back on your feet. Try doing one (or all) of these things the next time you’re feeling down.
#1 Call an old friend
Connecting with friends is a powerful way to bring out the best in us. They help us stay grounded even in the most uncertain of times. Call or FaceTime your friend, you’ll be happy you did!
#2 Take an outdoor walk
Fresh air is great for clearing your mind, not to mention even a quick walk has the ability to do wonders for your mood. Whether you have the time for an hour hike or just around the block, it’s worth it.
#3 Reminisce a fond memory
Time passes quickly, don’t forget to remember what makes you, you. We suggest flipping through old photo albums, funny home videos, little notes or anything that reminds you of a wonderful time in your life. You’ll be giggling at your once popular hairstyle from decades ago!
#4 Treat yourself
Indulge in some self-love by treating yourself to something a little extra today. A favorite dessert or a fancy pedicure are just a couple of suggestions. Have another glass of wine, no one’s counting!
#5 Enjoy your favorites
We all have places and treats we love. Enjoy your favorite TV shows or maybe cook up one of your favorite dishes to get you feeling in control of your life.
#6 Rest and recover
Sometimes we’re overworked. Take time out to rest and relax your mind, body, and spirit either through taking a nap or meditation. It’s perfect for clearing your thoughts.
#7 Write it out
Sometimes we’re restless with thoughts, worries, and obligations rolling around in our minds. It’s helpful to pull out your notebook and write down whatever's got you stressed.
#8 Find the humor in life
Whether it’s the latest Ellen episode or funny internet video, a good laugh is sometimes all we need! When things aren’t going your way, don't get too upset. Instead, find time to laugh at yourself.
#9 Find time to help others
Gratitude, appreciation, and selflessness give us purpose. Carve out time in your day to give back to the people in and around your life.
