Amazing ways to feel happier

Feeling a little blue lately? Feeling like nothing is going right in your life? Sadness around, researchers have known for decades that certain activities make us feel better and they are proven to boost up your mood. Scroll down to discover 7 amazing ways to feel good and happier-

1-Social media detox

Go away from social media for a while. Just put your cellphone aside and try to enjoy the Lil things around. sit with your family, have a good coffee, read your favorite novel or whatever pleases you. Because if you are feeling low, and you scroll down memes on Instagram you will feel even more worse by looking at “portrayed” fancy happy lives of your friends.

2- Music therapy

Trust me, music treats you in a way that nothing in this world can. It has got that amazing power to warm up your body and make you feel happier instantly. Music is often linked to mood. A certain song can make us feel happy, sad, energetic and even relaxed for that matter. Music can have such an impact on a person’s mindset and well being, it should come as no surprise that music therapy has been studied for use in managing numerous medical conditions.

3- Work it out

Exercise is proven to reduce stress. Whenever you workout, your body gets warmer and it releases stress. It reduces stress hormones and depression and anxiety. Researchers found that just 20 minutes of exercise can boost up your mood and it lasts for 12 hours. The location of your workout and the people coming there also affects how happy you feel afterwards!

4-Go out

If you feel depressed, dont sit at home. Go out, visit your favorite cafe, sip on some cappuccino and enjoy every sip of it. If you sit at home, you tend to feel even worse, you feel you are good for nothing and just wasting time. Also, negative thoughts come into your mind when you are idle. Probably you think about your x ! And that can make your situation even worse.

5-Get intimate

A 2004 study suggested that increasing the amount of intercourse you have from once a month to once a week gives the same amount of happiness as receiving an extra $50,000! How cool is that !!

Sexual activity releases a hormone called oxytocin. Oxytocin increases our ability to bond and empathize with one another. Therefore more sexual activity can increase our relationship satisfaction which contributes to happiness!

6-Watch your favorite movie

You can watch your all time favorite movie along with some popcorn and hot chocolate. Just allow yourself some “me time”. Put everything aside, get cozy with your warm blanket and enjoy the movie. When you watch a movie, you see what the director wants you to see. You’re looking at the on screen projection of his thoughts,his imagination and you forget all your negative emotions for that 2-3hours!

7-Meditate

Multiple studies suggest that meditating can help lessen feelings of depression and anxiety. Buddhist monks shows that these people brains are well developed in areas that could be linked to heightened awareness and emotional control. Meditation increases the grey matter in a part of the brain which is linked to happiness!

Weekend skincare is a bliss !

Weekends are not just to party, it is more about “ME time”. Don’t let your weekends go in just fun, chilling around or dreaming all the time in bed. Instead, give yourself a all natural skincare, go for a spa session or do it all at home, just pamper yourself ! Here i am, sharing my weekend skincare regime for hands, face and hairs 🙂

Hands

Before getting into shower, take generous amount of body scrub and scrub your hands to get rid of all that dead skin. After that, put some coconut oil for 10mins, believe me your hands will feel super smooth after shower then ! Don’t forget to moisturize later on ‘

Hairs-

You can put some hair oil one night before the week ends. Don’t forget your hairs need some hydration after a long busy week. Your hair tends to get rough, frizzy and dull with all that dust around. You can also put some hair mask before taking a shower-

Face-

Wash your face properly before you put anything on it. Get rid of all the dirt and oil that sticks around on your face. you can start by applying a good face mask on your skin. The best way would be to prepare it at home itself. The face mask which i use often is-

  1. One tablespoon of gram flour
  2. One tablespoon honey/curd
  3. One tablespoon lemon juice
  4. Mix them well and apply the mask for 10-15 mins before rinsing it off !

Another one you can prepare is turmeric and gram flour mask-

So thats it girls. Try out these steps of weekend skincare and your skin will thank you for that.
