Life isn’t all diamonds and rosé, but it should be. Let me teach you how to pick yourself up and find a little positivity in every day. Below are my favorite ways to reboot your life when you’re just not feeling it. Never forget that you are strong and you deserve all the good the world has to offer; it’s all about resetting your mindset and believing in yourself!
5 Ways to Reboot Your Life When You’re Just Not Feeling It
1. Re-watch your favorite funny or overly dramatic TV show.
I love watching funny TV shows or my favorite movies when I’m feeling deflated. In less than an hour, you’ll not only be distracted, but you’ll also laugh. Make sure not to fall into a binge-watching hole on Netflix, which can do the opposite of making you feel better. Let yourself watch a set number of episodes, then channel the happiness high throughout the rest of your day by getting productive and working towards your goals.
2. Break out your favorite playlist or podcast and go for a drive.
Find a rural or less densely populated area in your town and drive. If music is your thing, sing at the top of your lungs, carpool karaoke-style. Listen to a motivational or entrepreneurial podcast to re-motivate your soul and learn some tricks along the way.
3. Sweat it out for the ultimate endorphin boost.
There’s pretty much nothing a good workout can’t cure. Take a class for the extra benefit of being around other people, or if going solo is more your style, go for a long run or boxing session. Make sure to stay hydrated and treat yourself to a post-workout at-home spa night.
4. Dress up and grab your girls for a night on the town.
When you look better, you feel better. Get a blowout, put on your favorite party dress and color pop lipstick, then go dancing with your besties. Let your friends help you shoulder some of your hardship. That’s what friends are for! Bonus: being around happy people will naturally make you happier!
