Nobody wants to feel bad, but it’s not uncommon for some people to feel worse and worse over time. If that sounds familiar, it could feel like you’re trapped in a spiral. Don’t settle for that. Instead, put the effort into doing things every day to feel better.

While that sounds obvious, it’s a lot harder to put into practice. You don’t have to do anything major to start feeling better. Instead, you might be better off doing a few small things every day. They’ll be more manageable, so you shouldn’t have a problem doing them. They’ll also have a larger impact in time than you’d think.

  1. Daily Devotionals - A women’s devotional helps your mood more than you’d think. See them as daily affirmations to help you look after yourself and feel good. All these take is a few minutes every day. Doing them first thing in the morning helps set your day up the right way, but it’s also worth doing them just before bed.

  2. Sleep - While the amount of sleep you need depends on you, you’ll usually need around eight hours a night. If you’re not getting enough, it’ll affect your mood. You’ll feel cranky after a bad night’s sleep, and this gets worse if it goes on for a while. Develop a relaxing bedtime routine, and you’ll fall asleep relatively quickly. Get enough sleep each night.

  3. Get Outdoors - Spending time in nature affects your mood more than you’d think, especially if you’re inside most of the time. Between work and family time, you’ll usually be inside somewhere. Take the time to spend a little bit of time outdoors. You don’t need to spend days at a time doing this. Even ten minutes a day is more than enough.

  4. Pay It Forward - Feeling better often means focus on yourself, but not always. Paying it forward and doing something nice for someone makes you feel better. There’s an in-built sense of pride and accomplishment with this, which is why it’s worth doing. You’ll be doing something good for someone while looking after yourself. Even something small can be enough to give you a small boost in how you feel.

  5. Laugh - As difficult as it might be to laugh sometimes, it offers its benefits. Laughing gets endorphins flowing around your brain and body, making you feel a little better. That’s why everyone feels good when they’re laughing. The more you laugh, the more of these endorphins you get flowing around your body. Whether you’re watching a movie or spending time with a friend, take the time to laugh.

There’s no reason to keep yourself in a spiral of feeling worse and worse. You don’t need to go too far out of your way to start feeling better, though. You might just need a few small things to do every day to feel better. While it still takes time, it’s worth it.

Your mental health and feelings are worth the effort you put into them. Take the time you need to actually look after them.
