Do you want to feel great? Sure! Who doesn’t? But feeling great is not a constant in life. There are days when you feel amazing, and there are days you feel like something like nasty on the bottom of someone’s shoe. Ups and downs are simply a reality of life, inescapable even though uncomfortable.
Another reality of life is that it’s busy. Think about your day. How many things do you do? When I think about my day I sometimes wonder how I make it through at all. In fact, sometimes I feel ready to go back to bed when I am walking out the door to get my day started. So how do you keep feeling great when tired, anxious or otherwise just not feeling it?
We all know, in theory, how important it is to drink water. But I also know tons of people who say they don’t drink enough water. I used to be one them, although I think I likely did a better job than a lot of others. However, I did make it a goal some years back to drink more water on a regular basis. And ever since then, I’ve noticed that if I don’t drink enough water I start to feel really tired. As soon I get hydrated though, I feel so much better. It really is the most amazing feeling to be hydrated.
Get Dolled Up
All you ladies know how great you feel once you smack on some lip gloss. The act of putting yourself together makes you feel more confident and able to face the day. Make up has always made me feel beautiful, and although I don’t always wear it, those days when I feel blah and take some time to doll up, it makes the biggest difference in how I am feeling.
Laughter is the best medicine. We need more laughter in our lives. Children laugh so readily and as we age, we laugh less. But laughter is proven to get you feeling great so throw up your favourite sit com, or comic or call up a friend who is just hilarious and get laughing.
Honestly, eat your breakfast. This meal is way too important to skip, and starting with a healthy meal is so good for your body that you feel it all day long. Eat something with protein, fat and some good carbs too. Peanut butter on toast is good, so is a scrambled egg with avocado toast. Oatmeal and eggs is also not a bad choice.
Put Your Phone Away
Decide on a time when your phone goes away and stick to it. Scrolling through posts and social media constantly is not a healthy habit. It messes with our sleep patterns, causes levels of anxiety to increase and does not allow you to truly engage with friends and family–some of whom might even be the room with you! Instead, call a friend, play a game with your loved ones, or read a good book.
