Watch this & other videos on YouTube

Sometimes, small changes or habits can have a great impact on the way we perceive life and the way we feel about something distressful that might have happened to us. Whether you are going through a rough patch or you are simply interested in improving the quality of your life, there are practical ideas you can adopt right now to uplift your mood and increase your well-being. Here are five ideas you can use to make your life better right now:

1. Do 3 Jumping Jacks

Change your physiology and you will change the way you feel. When we exercise, we produce a special range of hormones that gives us that good feeling experience we all need to get out of a rough patch.

2. Let Go of The Victim Mentality

Comparing yourself or asking unhelpful questions such as “Why me?” can only prevent you from growing and going after your goals. Learn from what you have been experiencing and empower yourself by putting it to good use. You may also want to read the article “What is holding you back?

3. List 5 Reasons To Be Grateful for Today

Gratitude has become a buzz word but the effects of feeling grateful and finding gratitude even in small details of our days are undeniable. Gratitude can be the difference between feeling sorry for yourself when life is not going your way and feeling content for just being alive.

4. Set Up a Healthy Routine

If your routine is solely based on working, eating, and sleeping, then you might need to redesign it to add more well-being practices to your day. Add time for recreation but also time to work out or engage in some other meaningful activities such as volunteering locally, or baking for your best friend.

  1. All of these ideas are so important to leading a healthy life, especially gratitude as they can make one realize how blessed/privileged one’s life is. Exercise is a hard one because I know it’s healthy for me but it takes so much work and energy lol, but I’ll have to add it to my routine.

    Thank you for sharing these ideas!

    1. Daily gratitude is a must, especially when we’re feeling less lucky. Start small with exercise. Adding a brief walk, a yoga session at home – even 10 minutes of stretching can have a positive impact.


    1. I’m sorry you’ve been feeling that way lately. The best way to shift more quickly is through some aerobic exercise. Low-impact workouts can be a good option. There are some sessions on YouTube (I sometimes do them to lift up my mood!) xx

  2. Very helpful ideas. I remember myself how miserable I had become a period of my life when I had no time to exercise at all. Exercise, letting go of the victim mentality and feeling gratitude for everything you are and have are really life changing factors.

    1. Exercise is really a game changer. It’s the quickest way I know to change physiology and the way we feel. It’s awesome. I’m glad you noticed the difference and I hope you now have the chance to be more active.


  3. These are good tips to start from. Though nr 2 is easier said than done ๐Ÿ™‚ I really like 3 and 4 and I have been trying these on and off, sometimes it goes really well and then something messes everything up. But I keep on trying

  4. All of these are such great ideas. Exercising always makes me feel better, but getting up and doing three jumping jacks is such a good idea. I feel like I often put pressure on myself to do ‘enough’ exercise when really getting up and doing three can make all the difference in mood xx

  5. Nice ideas!
    I need to work toward assuming myself more & be less apologetic; on the account of being seemingly “mean”, but taking in account the view of others less. Having more confiance towards my competences & knowledge wouldn’t hurt either ๐Ÿ˜…

    1. Thank you, Kristina! I support you on that journey. We’re here to be ourselves because everyone else is already taken hehe ๐Ÿ’– I’m having some posts this months on numerology and astrology as self-knowledge tools, maybe you will like to learn more about them and how they can help you trace your natural compentences and talents!

  6. I love all of these ideas, Vanessa! On my next desk break, I’m going to do some jumping jacks. I haven’t done those in years. And also, I love a daily gratitude practice. I often speak mine out loud, from bed, while I’m getting up in the morning.

  7. That was a really lovely list! And totally manageable too. Small changes leading to big wellbeing results ๐Ÿ’–


    1. Excellent tips here in a great post. Why me is a question I struggled with for a very long time. But once I dealt with it, more or less, it will always be there, I felt free. It’s also important to get into physical shape and have a good routine. In life, there is a lot to be grateful for, but we often forget, that’s why reminding ourselves is a great idea.


  8. I think exercise is the key. Just a little bit of it every day can make you feel exponentially better.

    I also like the gratitude part. Remind yourself of all the things you should be grateful for.

    We as a species, tend to forget the good things and only focus on the bad , hence Twitter. ๐Ÿ˜

    1. Yes, exercise alone can give us a great boost! And that’s so true about gratitude, good point. We do have a tendency to go towards what is missing and what’s negative! Thanks for reading โค๏ธ


  9. Great tips, and so easy to do…it is the doing that makes it happen. Wow, victim mentality, that was a big one for me and I still fall into the habit from time to time. But it is very powerful when you are able to release it. Another brill post, thank you.
