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.

Eat Healthier

Regularly eating foods that are filled with nutrients can help you feel more positive and energetic. You will feel better mentally too.

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.

Think About Your Anger

Many people who suffer from depression are actually masking a feeling of anger, turning their rage toward someone else on themselves.

It's a physiological fact that activity fights depression. 

Get your heart rate up 20 minutes a day, five days a week, and it has been scientifically proven that you will feel better emotionally.

Even just getting out of the house for a walk, a game of catch with your kids, or a trip to the gym is a medically proven method of improving the way you feel.
