An Easy Trick To Boost Your Mood And Reduce Daily Stress
In a modern world of fast paced activities, everyday life sometimes can become overwhelming. This can cause you lots of stress and bring your mood down. Over the years I myself have dealt with numerous instances of large amounts of stress and I can tell you it isn’t at all fun. There are lots of great ways and strategies to make yourself feel better in no time. The best part is they don’t cost a thing. I’m going to share with you one of my favorites.
Recently I was sitting around my house thinking about all the stuff I need to do. I figured that I could just sit around and think my stress away. Most of the time that strategy doesn’t work and will only cause me more stress. What does work for me and will take my mind off the realities of everyday life is do something small and productive around the house, office, car, or anywhere else you happen to be.
You don’t have to take on a major project in order to make a difference. You can do something as little as tidy your room or walk around and pick up your yard. By doing a small and simple task where you can reap in the rewards afterwords, will be a great chance for you to get sucked into something that will have results you can enjoy immediately. I say a small task because you need to be able to finish it in one setting so that you can see the reward for you hard work.
There is something about the human mind that absolutely loves to see progress being made. I don’t what the exact mechanism is, but I can tell you it works and your day can turn around in an instant from even the smallest of tasks. I challenge you to get up right now and do something small that will only take you about 15 minutes and complete it all the way through. Make sure it’s something that you didn’t really plan on doing, just make it spontaneous and go for it. Do that and you will improve you mood instantly. I call this strategy progressive distraction. Good Luck!
