Feeling stretched and desperate to break out of your rut? There’s more to life than just work and paycheques! Here are some ways to get excited about your life again:
1. Dance like no one is watching
There’s something liberating and exciting about letting go and grooving to your favourite tunes. It also makes you let go of your body hang-ups and appreciate the things your body can do. So turn up the music and get shaking!
2. Light some scented candles
Some people swear by aromatherapy to de-stress. After all, inhaling pleasant scents is known to help improve your mood. Be it soothing chamomile or lavender, a scented candle or bath, or even a quick spritz of your favourite perfume – this is a quick way to relax at the end of the day.
3. Call up a friend
Sometimes, we just need a listening ear or someone who will empathise with us. Emotional connection can help you rediscover your sense of self so you don’t feel like you are alone or overwhelmed by your problems. Even a 10-minute chat with a confidante— be it your bestie or your parents — can really lift your mood.
4. Have some chocolate
You probably already know the health benefits of dark chocolate by now. Touted as one of the super-foods in the world, dark chocolate contains antioxidants that are not only beneficial for your skin, it also comes packed with endorphins that improve your mood instantly.
