There was one day last week where I woke up in the worst mood. I just felt so unmotivated to do anything and felt really discouraged with everything I did. It was one of my days off so I had a list of blog stuff I wanted to get done. But I knew with the mood I was in I wouldn’t of liked anything I did.. Even my morning workout was bad. I usually have one or two days a month where I feel like this (usually around the time of the month) and it just puts a negative spin on your whole day.
Although that day I started off feeling really unmotivated & just in the worst mood ever. My afternoon ended up being super productive. I helped my mum cook dinner for the night and I also managed to write our 4 or 5 blog posts too. So today I’m sharing the 5 things that will help lift your mood and get your motivation back!
Go For A Walk
Sometimes it’s best just to step away from what you’re doing and take a walk. That day I went for a long walk early afternoon and the rest of my afternoon ended up being so productive.
Even though working out didn’t help lift my mood that particular day. Working out has helped in the past. Like taking a walk working out can be the perfect way to clear your head & help get your motivation back.
Read a Book
Stepping away from what you’re doing and picking up a book for half an hour or an hour can instantly lift your mood. Just taking some time out with no other distractions can make you feel so much better.
Staying off Social Media
When you’re not in the best of moods or feeling unmotivated social media can be a blessing and a curse. If you’re feeling unmotivated social media can be a great way to get some fresh inspiration to motivate you. But if you’re not in the best of moods like I was that day. When I ended up comparing myself to everyone, I decided that spending a few hours off social media was the best thing to change my mood.
Do something Practical
Sometimes doing an activity thats practical and that you can put all your focus into can change your mood instantly. Whether that be cooking & preparing your evening dinner or focusing on a particular hobby. Doing something practical can both lift your mood and motivate you too.
