Feelings are part of us, otherwise we’d be machines. We all want good feeling to last and bad ones to disapear as soon as possible. While it’s healthy to cry sometimes and let it all out, we do want to feel better eventually, right? These are the five points I like to follow whenever I’m feeling down, but feel free to add yours in the comment section. 😊
3. Take a breath.
Before you act, try to calm your thoughts by drinking some tea for calmness, relaxation or purification. At the same time you can press play on countless YouTube videos on inspirational talks. I usually listen to motivational speeches such as Ted Talks but you can find anything that suits you and your problems.
4. Exercise or walk it out.
Exercise is also another scientifical proof that increases level of dopamine in your brain. An article The New Science of Exercise (written by Oaklander) says exercise is beneficiary to the brain- it can lead to less depression, better memory and faster learning. It is believed to be crucial to health as well- it can not only give your skin better and healthy glow, but can improve your eye health and also acts as a great preventive (or delay) against diseases such as Alzheimer’s and arthritis.
5. Take an afternoon off and do what you want.
If it’s the middle of the week, it is highly likely you’re in school or working. In such case, once you get home, cancel all your plans for the day and spend it how you like. You can indulge in an ice cream or do something crazy, like ziplining. But you can also pet a dog or a cat- that too was said to have calming effects on both; the human and the animal. 😊
