If you’re stressed or in a bad mood when you go to bed at night, most people expect to wake up feeling better. This is possible if you’ve got a good night’s sleep. But if you tossed and turned all night, and found it hard to get that required amount of sleep, no doubt even when you wake up, you’d be feeling lousy; as though last night’s bad mood has just extended to the mornings.
For mornings like this, we all need a little pick-me-up. Since sleeping the day isn’t an option for most of us, here are a few other methods that work to chase away the gloom.
Go without the warmth of the shower
Most people are used to starting the day with a warm shower. But for days like this, it’s better to give yourself a little jolt to awaken yourself, rather than gently chasing away the sleep. Turn down the temperature of your water, and get it as cold as you can stand your shower to be. This usually works for most people; but if you are someone who catches colds pretty fast, then this might not be a very good idea.
Add a little prettiness to your morning
Our day-to-day schedules tend to make our days dreary. And though you might not feel the absence of beauty on normal days, on the mornings that everything feels gloomy; this can really be highlighted. Add a pop of color to your day through your clothing or makeup. If time permits, walk into a flowershop Dubai and pick out a bunch that makes you happy. Carry it to work with you, or keep it somewhere you can see it all day.
A little exercise can go a long way
If you don’t have to rush out in the mornings, then here’s a better suggestion. Try exercising. Even if you don’t want to shop for flowers, get dressed and head out to the gym. The rush of blood in your veins early in the morning can energize you and give you a feeling of accomplishment; which will inevitably make you feel happy. It will also help you focus for the rest of the day.
Feed the body
Are you someone who feels good eating cakes or drinking a chocolaty treat? Do you usually avoid indulging yourself due to a strict diet? If you said yes to both these questions, perhaps breaking the rules today might make you feel better. A chocolate milkshake on the way to work or a bar of your favorite kind of chocolate can go a long way to chase away your gloomy mood.
And if everything else fails, grab a friend and head out for brunch; the laughter, companionship and a little complaining can help you through…
