4. Sing – badly!
Did you know singing is good for you? But the key is to not care how good you sound. Just belt out that tune – off key, if necessary – purely for the joy of it.
5. Bless somebody.
There’s no better way to feel good fast that to do something to make someone else smile. Altruism takes the focus off of ourselves and helps us connect to the people around us, reminding us that what we do matters. Self-absorption is a recipe for depression. Who could you help right now?
My challenge to you: Boost your mood in the next five minutes. Then put this list somewhere to remind you of the little things that can make a big difference in how you feel.
