5 Habits To Boost Your Mood And Help You Get Out Of A Funk

5 Habits To Boost Your Mood

Sharing is caring!

I’ve been in such a funk lately! However, I do believe that it is normal to be in a “funk” every once and awhile. Especially now, with what is going on in our world today. Life has been difficult for everyone lately and falling into a funk and feeling uninspired or demotivated happens to the best of us. I’ve gone through a lot these past few weeks personally, and I really think that the uncertainty and worry in the world are what’s causing my “funk” and it’s no fun. Because with all this time at home, and with nowhere to really go, I would like to use it to be creative and productive. So with that, this whole situation has got me thinking about simple mood-boosting habits we can all use to help fight that “funk” and uninspired feeling off. The best part is all of these habits can be done from the comfort of your own home!

 

So, let’s dive into these 5 habits to boost your mood and help you get out of a funk!

 

 

5 Habits To Boost Your Mood

 

 

1. Make your bed 

 

Take a moment, first thing in the morning, to make your bed! It’s crazy that something as simple as making your bed can really boost your overall mood and make you feel productive immediately after the task is completed. For me, when my bed is made my entire bedroom looks so much cleaner and more put together.

When it isn’t made, my room looks a mess. Which in return, causes me to feel stressed and overwhelmed. Along with this, you can apply this concept to any area of your home. The state of our physical environment has a bigger effect on our mental state than we realize. Therefore, if you’re in a funk, take a look around and see what you can straighten up or organize. Personally, I know I feel 10x better when everything is picked up and put away where it belongs. I feel like my space is organized, so my mind can feel more organized and at ease.

 

2. Enjoy the fresh air & natural light 

 

Something that I find very helpful to be out in the sunshine (if you’re able to) and to enjoy the fresh air while being in the outdoors. I feel that sunshine and all the amazing benefits that come with it such as vitamin D and serotonin really do help boost your mood in such a simple way! If fact, it’s actually been proven that sunshine and enjoying the fresh air outdoors increases happiness, boosts energy levels, and enhances your overall mood.

Along with this, I think it is so important to let in natural light inside your house as much as possible! Obviously this is something that has to be done during the day, however, the point is to make sure you open those blinds, windows, or curtains first thing in the morning and let the light shine bright. There’s something about natural light that is energizing and it should definitely be taken advantage of whenever you get the chance. You’ll be surprised at just how quick your mood will shift!

 

3. Call a loved one 

 

Time a moment to call a friend or a loved one. Think of someone who’s in your circle or someone that you’re very close with or someone you can trust and count on to be there for you. Who is that person that always puts you in a good mood when you’re around them? Call them! The energy of the people we spend our time with definitely has an effect on us; whether it’s positive or negative. Therefore, always be mindful of the company you keep and make sure you know who gives you those good vibes. Confide in each other and listen to one another. For both their well-being and your own!

 

4. Write it out 

 

Gosh, I have been journaling so much lately and I can’t tell you how much it has been helping me. There’s something so profound when it comes to writing down your emotions, feeling, and thoughts down on paper and actually seeing them visually out in front of you. However, writing doesn’t always have to mean journaling! Some people enjoy creative writing as well and that’s totally okay! In the same respect, you might enjoy writing with pen and paper, or you may prefer typing or grabbing your phone and listing everything in your notes.

Whatever your preference, journaling, or typing on your phone or computer, is the perfect way to get your feelings out and gain insight into why you’re feeling the way you’re feeling. Sometimes the best way to pull yourself out of a funk is to figure that the reason you’re in a funk in the first place. With that, start free writing whatever comes to mind and look for patterns! If you’re looking to hear more benefits of journaling or writing out your thoughts, definitely check out this post!

 

5. Get moving 

 

I’ve talked about this again and again, and as much as I hate to be repetitive, knowing the importance of moving your body every single day is essential! Not only for your physical health but your mental health as well. Any type of movement is one of the biggest mood-boosting habits there are! In fact, it’s one of the most versatile too.

A few ideas are to go for a walk, do yoga or pilates, follow a workout on youtube, learn a TikTok dance, or simply stretch. Whatever feels good to you, just do it. Because along with boosting your mood, exercise can reduce stress and lower the risk of depression. So even if you’re not in the mood to move, push yourself to do it. I promise, my friend, you won’t regret how you feel afterward!
