There are many things that usually make me happy but I want to share how you can make the simple things help out your bad moods. Many people deal with sadness differently, some people like to isolate there selves and deal with it all on their own, but I strongly recommend using 1 of the 5 things that make ME happy, to bring YOUR happiness back to you!
FAMILY & FRIENDS
The thing with family and friends is that they is usually too much of them or not enough of them. In my life I have a lot although mine are scattered around the world. My friends & family are always keeping me happy by simple ways, just speaking to them!
The way you could cheer yourself up with family and friends is by having a quick chat, bring up fun times that you've had in the past, dig for those good memories and let your mind enjoy the thought of those.
This is one of my favourite things to do... EVER!
Weather its jetting off to a hot country, ferrying through to a nearby European country or simply driving to the next town, its always fun going on an adventure! It educates me on the little things and usually relaxes me.
Maybe if your feeling down, you should also book a trip somewhere, where you can turn off all electrical devices and just relax, without thinking of anything that can bring you down
Personally, I'm a girl of many hobbies... I like a lot of things and in my spare time I could find 100000 fun things to do! If I ever feel down I get on with something that is fun for me and it usually fetches my mood back up!
Getting inspired for new hobbies is very easy, weather its sport, social or artistic there are millions of things you could be doing to keep your mind of the negativity.
Find something that you really enjoy doing it and do it at least every 2/3 days, It really helps your happiness as you are doing something you love to do!
I think music is a healer, it always helps! With music I can make myself happy, angry, excited, sad, humoured and jealous.. all depending on what I listen to. Music is a big part of my life and I like to listen to it daily.
Make a playlist of 15-20 songs that are your ''happy songs'' and every time you feel yourself getting to the low spot, pick your self up by the use of music and fun lyrics!
This is my favourite ;) I loveeeeeeeee buying new make up, new clothes, new house stuff and gadgets ... I enjoy receiving them in the post rather than going out and buying them, because it just gives me something to look forward to! When buying something it doesn't necessarily have to be expensive or amazing! It can be something simple that gets you excited to receive it.
Maybe you've seen something in the shops a few week back and couldn't get it as your size or colour wasn't there, maybe it was sold out or unavailable in that specific store... Buy it online!! You will feel great after you've purchased it and even better once it arrives!
Hopefully that helped, like i said there are many more things that make me happy in my life, and whenever you are feeling down... Find something that is worth been happy about :)
