A quick dose of encouragement to motivate you to know that a bad day is not gonna define you. Three things you can easily do to turn things around and boost your mood.
The very first tip to have a better day is to listen to music. There is incredible power in music. Music can uplift you. It can completely transform your mood. Therefore in order to have a better day, listen to music. Rock out to an incredible playlist of your favorite songs while driving in the car. Or while you work, listen to music. Put on a powerful playlist that can instantly boost your mood and make any day, instantly better.
Never forget the power that music can hold. Whether that’s a powerful, uplifting, inspirational playlist, or worship music. Or music that is just a distraction. Whatever you need it for, never, ever, underestimate the power that music can hold in your life. It can do things and move things. So, turn up the music and have a dance party. Rock out to whatever you need to rock out too. Therefore, the first tip to have a better day is to listen to music and allow it to completely change your mood.
The second, super simple thing to boost your mood and allow you to have a better day is to spend time outside. Go outside. Specifically spend time in sun. Go outside and actually spend time outside. Go for a walk. Sit, read a book in the sun. Drive with the windows down and feel the fresh air, while playing that favorite song more loud. Spend time outside. There is such a medicine to fresh air. There’s such medicine to sunshine. Therefore, when you are in need of a mood boost and want to have a better day, spend time outside.
The third and final thing to do when you need a mood boost in order to have a better day is to find community with others. I know how easy it can be to want to stay alone and isolated when walking through a hard season. When things get challenging, I don’t want to deal with other people. Instead, I prefer to sit and sulk and deal with myself. However, there’s so much power that comes when you do life with other people. Therefore, when you need a mood boost, go ahead and find community with others.
You don’t have to confide in everything you’re dealing with. But you can surround yourself with people to help you and walk with you. Community to provide a little extra camaraderie, a little extra joy, and laughter. A community to provide conversation, with somebody to talk to and who can see you. Truly, see you. Find community with others. We are not meant to do this life alone. We are meant to do it with relationships, with people. When you live life with community, you don’t have to walk and carry hardship or burden alone. Instead, we can do this with others, and have a community to support and walk with you through anything.
Friends, there you have it, just three super simple, easy things to do to boost your mood. Three tips for a better day. Therefore, if you’re having a hard day, or if you’re struggling, and the season of life is hard. Please know that you can easily do just a few things to make things feel a little lighter. This doesn’t mean that your problems are going to go away. However, these things will bring a little more happiness to your day.
Where you can smile a little bit more. You can feel a little bit more joy. So that you can feel a little bit less of that weight on your shoulders.
