Everyone goes through periods where they are not feeling their best. If you're currently going through one of those stages in your life you may be wondering how you can get out of your current mood and start enjoying life. 

Getting out of your current state of mind may not be as difficult as you think, no matter what the situation. Here are some of the easiest and best ways in which you can boost your mood instantly.


It is often said that laughter is the best medicine. It may sound cliche but making a conscious effort to laugh every day is a great way to boost your mood instantly. 

So how can you start laughing once again, try watching a comedy, or going out into nature. The beauty of your surroundings and even the animals that you see, may be just what you need to start laughing and smiling again.


If you are not journaling or if you haven't tried journaling in a while then you should. It is one of the best ways to express yourself and to speak freely about whatever is on your mind. 

Journaling allows you to release your emotions and find solutions to your problems. Getting things out of your head and onto paper has been proven as an effective method to psychologically boost your outlook on life.

You can buy a journal and write your thoughts out on pen and paper or you can use a digital journal. Digital journals have become very popular in recent years as many of them come in the form of apps. 

This means you can carry your journal with you wherever you go. As long as you have internet service you can start writing your thoughts whenever you feel the need.

There are also courses you can take online to help you feel better about life. You can check out some of these courses at participating retailers, to help you get on the right track.


You probably know that you should exercise. However, if you are not doing it then it is worth mentioning here. Exercising releases endorphins which will instantly put you in a better mood.

Often the reason why many people don't exercise is because they simply are not motivated to start. It may seem overwhelming. 

If you break up your exercise goals into smaller pieces you may find them more doable. For example, if you go on YouTube you will find several 10-minute exercises that you can do. 

You could do 10 minutes of exercise in the morning and another 10 minutes in the afternoon. At the end of the day, you would have exercised for 20 minutes, if you did this four times a week you would have exercised for 80 minutes the entire week. 

Breaking up your exercise regime in this way makes it doable and less intimidating.

Take Care of You

If you have found yourself in a bad mood lately, taking care of yourself is something that you must make a priority.

Take the time to laugh, journal your thoughts, and exercise. You may find that this is all you need to start feeling great again.
