Nobody is perfect.
Nobody. No, I’m not talking about the age old classic T-shirt quote “Nobody is
perfect and I am nobody”. I’m just being very straight. Everyone has their fair
share of ups and downs in life, mood swings, emotional variations et cetera.
While some days you’re extremely happy, the other days you might be equally
depressed. Happens, because that is what we call “LIFE”. When you’re feeling
all low at times, you experience a surge of emotions within you. While some
people handle it in a positive way, some others fail to do so. Or even if you
are someone who does take things more optimistically, you might sometimes feel
your mood going out of control. And that’s when you need some basic mood
pick-ups. Best part, all these take less than 10 minutes.
This has always
worked out for me and I hope it will help you too.
worry, a tiny piece of chocolate will not harm your diet. In fact, researches
have proved that a certain amount of chocolate is necessary for your body, even
if you’re dieting. And I was amazed when I read once that around 4 pieces of chocolate(regular
sized.. like say, your Cadbury Diary Milk bar) if included in your diet can
actually help you cut down weight. Apart from that chocolate contains serotonin
which helps relieve stress, thereby bringing down your irritability or
frustration. Plus, many people swear by chocolates when they are stressed. So,
you see it’s psychological as well. :)
is therapeutic and nothing beats it more than open air or open spaces. The freshness
of the air, the gushing wind, sweet smelling flowers, greenery, the sky, the
clouds – everything. It could be at a park, poolside, your terrace or any place
where you’re sure you won’t be disturbed. Take a 5-10 minute walk outside and I’m
pretty sure you will not just relaxed but even more receptive. Even if you’re
working, you always have a break in between, spare 5 minutes of it for yourself
– just you and the nature. Simple.
one of the fastest mood lifters, this. A song of 3-5 minutes is all it takes to
set right your mood. Play your favourite track, listen to it, hum along, sway
your head, and dance if you want or if you can sing or play an instrument, do
it! Do whatever it takes for you to ENJOY the music, feel it completely and before
you know it, you’ll be a lot happier than you were 10 minutes back.
tea works the best, I tell you! It not only has anti-oxidant properties but it
also the fastest to make. Plus, it’s totally healthy. No sugar, no milk – all you
need is a cup of hot water and tea bag and 2 minutes in your hand, nothing else
and it’s ready. Yes, it sure does taste wierd initially but you will get used
to it very soon. Or if it’s summer and you cannot drink piping hot tea, then
iced green tea works just as good. And for those who detest green tea, black
tea can be a fair alternative.
people love being alone when they’re low and the others experience an
uncontrollable urge to talk. Well, even if the urge is controllable it’s always
a good option to talk with someone you like/trust a lot because if so happens
that when you share your grief or issues with someone, you not only find an
answer to your dilemma but you will even a lot better. But yes, talk to someone
whom you’re sure will LISTEN to you, not bash you or say you’re stupid.
You don’t want your 5 minute talk to go waste – or worse – get you all the more irritated, do you?!
And if all else
fails, MEDITATE. Connect with your soul for 4-5 minutes, find the inner peace
and you’re refreshed, rejuvenated and as happy as you can be.
If this worked for
you as well, do write back to me.
Smile and face the
world with positivity. Most importantly, be yourself! :)
