Do you feel like you’re trapped in a rut that seems impossible to get out of? Rest assured that you’re not the only one experiencing this. In fact, it’s normal for our mood and energy levels to fluctuate from time to time. Having some “happiness hacks” up your sleeve can be extremely helpful in breaking this cycle and making a positive change.
Why not give these tips and tricks a shot?
Realign your body’s natural sleep-wake cycle. Re-establish your body’s internal clock by waking up in the morning with the rising sun. By exposing yourself to natural sunlight during the early part of the day, your body can produce serotonin for an extended duration. It’s worth experimenting with this practice for a couple of weeks to observe any potential changes.
Perform some stretching exercises upon waking up. Since you are now waking up early in the morning, incorporate some gentle stretching into your routine to assist your body in waking up. Stretching can boost your blood flow, alleviate muscle tightness caused by sleep, and alleviate stiffness.
Maintain a pleasant fragrance in your work area. Aromas have the potential to significantly influence your emotions. If you desire a sense of tranquility, opt for lavender or jasmine. Vanilla or sage are excellent choices for creating a relaxing ambiance. If you’re seeking an energizing atmosphere, consider using grapefruit or lemon scents. Candles or essential oils can be an effective means of introducing these fragrances into your workspace.
Disconnect from social media. It can occur unconsciously, and all of a sudden, you may find yourself endlessly scrolling through your Facebook or Instagram feeds. Try taking a break from social media to decrease the amount of negativity affecting your mental state. Replace the habit of scrolling with an alternative activity like reading a book, journaling, or engaging in a do-it-yourself project. I’ve recently been choosing to delay turning on my cell phone for the first hour of being awake.
Devote some time to being outside. Vitamin D is often referred to as the “sunshine” vitamin for a reason. Basking in the sunlight can serve as a natural method of enhancing your mood, but it’s essential to also apply sunscreen to protect your skin.
