5 Morning Mood Boosters

1.    Pick one “spoil-me” task to do: When you wake up, give yourself 30 seconds to think of at least one nice thing you can do for yourself that day…and then do it.

2.     Eat a well-balanced meal: Start your morning with a nutritious mix of complex carbohydrates and proteins that will last you until lunch, such as oatmeal or toast with peanut butter.

3.    Get some fresh air: Head out for some “green exercise” (physical activity performed in an outdoor setting) even if you only have a few minutes to spare.

4.     Listen to the sounds of nature: Capture the benefits of the great outdoors, even if you can’t get outside, by listening to recorded nature sounds.

5.    Focus on feeling good: Right after waking up, take five deep, intentional breaths and remind yourself of your decision to feel good.
