Weak and low on energy? Here are some tips to bring back the smile and start enjoying the weekend.
There are many reasons for waking up feeling a bit blue, even if it’s the most awaited day of the week. This Friday found me in low spirits. I had my regular cup of coffee, knowing that it always makes me feel better, but nothing happened. So, I did what was only natural to do: had another one! And still waiting for the good feelings to kick in. Anyway, I don’t really have a reason to be bummed, but I have lots of reasons to be happy and grateful. Therefore, I thought of dedicating this day to some self-care.
With all that caffeine in my system, my body had the energy, but my mind didn’t. What perfect way to make good use of this electrical charge in my body, but exercise? It is well proven that moving your body improves mental health, reduces anxiety, depression, and all that is associated with a low or negative mood. Dancing is a great way of lifting up the spirits and, I think, you should do it even when you don’t feel like it. Actually, do it especially when you don’t feel like it. Give it a try! Laugh in life’s face! Or dance, in this case.
Reducing stress should always be a top priority. Take some time alone, do something just for yourself. Selfishness has its own benefits at times. Cocoon yourself in bed, have some comfort food, and watch a movie. I’m definitely doing this today. I’ll clear my mind of any thoughts or worries, and give myself some space to relax.
It’s Friday, it’s cold outside, but this creates the perfect day for wrapping yourself like a burrito and enjoying the coziness of the house. Lit some candles, and incense sticks, leave the rush of the week behind, and slow everything down. Start with your breath.
It is nearly the weekend. This is your own time. This is your own life. Make it beautiful.
