Key Ideas

Spend Time Outdoors

Spending time outside of your apartment can lift your mood. 

If you are unable to get outside, add greenery to your space, for some plant therapy.

Volunteer

People who volunteer are likely to have higher self-esteem, psychological well-being, and happiness.

Help someone else out who really needs it.

Practice Gratitude

Research suggests that writing regularly in your gratitude journal can increase your well-being and overall life satisfaction.

Negative Self-Talk

Don't say things to yourself that you would not say to a loved one. 

If you want to feel better about yourself, change how you think about yourself.

Dress Up

What you wear affects how you feel.

Wear the clothes in your closet that makes you feel pretty and confident.

Have 'Me Time'

Taking time out to recharge your batteries improves your psychological well-being. 

Smile More Often

When your brain senses that you're using your muscles to smile, it's assuming that it must be happy about something. 

Smile, even if you don't always feel like it.

Accept Your Status

Rather than comparing yourself to others and finding the disadvantages you feel you're faced with, acknowledge your own path.

Consciously look for the advantages of where you are. 

Exercise More

It's hard to ignore how essential exercising is for you to feel happier.

The first 20 minutes of exercise provide most of the health benefits.

Meditate

Meditation allows more rational thinking to take the place of anxiety.

Start the day with meditation by simply letting go of your thoughts.

Emotional vs. true hunger

Physical hunger

  • It develops slowly over time.
  • You desire a variety of food groups.
  • You feel the sensation of fullness and take it as a cue to stop eating.
  • You have no negative feelings about eating.

Emotional hunger

  • It comes about suddenly or abruptly.
  • You crave only certain foods.
  • You may binge on food and not feel a sensation of fullness.
  • You feel guilt or shame about eating.
Emotional hunger isn’t easily quelled

While filling up could work in the moment, eating because of negative emotions often leaves people feeling more upset than before.

This cycle typically doesn’t end until a person addresses emotional needs head-on.
