Music is a universal language. No matter what rare you feeling, listening to music can literally give you a boost. 

Have some Positive Talk

You know what, I love to talk go myself like 100 times a day. Not because I don’t have someone to talk to. It’s just I spend so much time with me, more than anyone else. So, if I won’t spend a good time with myself. Things will not work for me.

Pamper yourself, talk to yourself like someone you love. 

Exercise. 

I remember last time how jumping jags and some squats save my life. 

Crossfit, Sports, Fitness, Training, Exercise, Athlete

Xd… It sounds funny! But yes, whenever you feel like the world is not a good place, or things are not working for you. Take a long breath and just go into the gym. Actually, when we do exercise, Dopamine is released. 

Your body releases stress-relieving and mood-boosting endorphins before and after you work out, which is why exercise is a powerful antidote to stress, anxiety, and depression.

Grab some Dark Chocolate. 

I know you’re health-conscious and avoid calories. But sometimes you have to have fun in life. 

Believe me, having some pieces of chocolate or even a good meal helps you to achieve better goals for mental health. 

Though your diet contributes a lot to your mental health, eat fresh, eat raw, and EAT. 

Good food and nutrients are important for your cognitive function. 

This will nourish your whole body, including your brain. Carbohydrates (in little amount ) increase serotonin, a chemical that has a calming effect on your mood.

 Protein-rich foods increase norepinephrine, dopamine, and tyrosine, which help keep you alert. And vegetables and fruits do the magic for your body and mind. Also, Include foods with Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. 

Open your Heart to your loved ones.

We all need validations, an empathic ear that hears us, understand us without any judgment.

Go to a true friend, your loved one, or a family member. Who genuinely cares for you.

I am blessed to be a good friend and also find some good friends in my circle. So yeah, this technique literally works. 

Remember you are valued among your peers, and being a trusting person improves your emotional well being too much.
