Feel Good Fix – October 2015

Nowadays it’s nearly impossible not to feel overloaded, stressed out, or just simply like you have no time for yourself. There’s no time to stop, relax, take a break; but the everyday hustle can be detrimental to your mood (among other things). So, we’ve decided to help you find ways to improve your mood with our monthly Feel Good Fix! Think of it as a monthly homework assignment… for yourself. You can do it just one day out of the month, or every single day if you can. It’s all up to you and when you feel you need that extra boost of happiness.

This month, we’re starting simple – talk to someone that makes you laugh. We have all heard that laughter is the best medicine, so lets put that medicine to good use! We all know someone who we can rely on to put a smile on our face. Perhaps it’s a sibling, a friend, or a coworker. Whoever it may be, take a couple minutes out of your day to talk to them. You might think, couldn’t I just watch a comedy for laughs? It’s not the same as a one-on-one conversation with someone you know and can relate to directly. You can’t depend on something scripted to make you laugh to the point of tears – but you might know someone who can do just that. Take a few minutes today, or some time this week, to reach out and connect with someone that makes you genuinely laugh and feel happy. Leave us a comment and let us know how it helped lift your spirits! 🙂
