10 things to do to cheer you up!


Hello there everyone!


I am sorry that I haven't done a post since April, I am guilty of not having any motivation to write on here and have been absorbing myself into too many books - that will never change though as I will forever be a bookworm! I've had many down days myself so I decided to write this post to tell you some tips which you can do to cheer yourself up when you're having one of those days. Hopefully you're not having them often. Here's to hopefully a happier you..

1. Read a good book! This is such a peaceful and relaxing way to escape the realities of the real world and you'll most certainly get sucked into a great imaginary world where you can forget your worries.

2. Have a lovely warm bubble bath. The warm water gently surrounding your body, the sweet smells of your body wash and the clean feeling you get afterward will definitely lift your spirits.

3. Watch a Disney film. Everybody loves a good old Disney movie, what better way is there to cheer up than to get all nostalgic from Disney childhood memories.

4. Smile! Smiling even when you have nothing to smile about will fool your brain into thinking you're happy by releasing endorphins.

5. Go for a peaceful walk in the countryside or somwhere you love. Like smiling, exercise such as walking also releases endorphins - the feel good happy hormone!

6. Speak to loved ones like friends and family whether it is about how you're feeling or just general chit chat. This is bound to cheer you up!

7. Take deep breaths. This will calm your whole body from head to toe. It is very soothing to the soul and will help you feel more in control of the day or situation.

8. Turn on your favorite music and get dancing or singing!

9. Meditate for 10 minutes. Turn off your phone, go and sit in a quiet room then imagine you are on a beach or somewhere which makes you happy - smell all of the smells, see all of the sights and hear all of the sounds. Whilst doing this also keep in mind your breathing.

10. Hang out with your pet - give them lots of cuddles or stroke their fur. They will make you feel loved, wanted and happy! They stick by your side no matter what after all.

These are just a few ideas to try and make your day that little bit brighter, I hope some of these ideas help for you or your loved ones.

Don't hesitate to share your own ideas in the comments!

Lots of Love,
Koren xo
