Give Yourself a Mood Boost - 15-30 Minutes

If you have 15 minutes to spare you can:

  • De-clutter your desk or an area of your home
  • Treat yourself to a moisturizing mask
  • Change into a favorite piece of clothing and admire yourself
  • Do a few quick and easy exercises or stretches
  • Read a few pages of a book or magazine you enjoy
  • Make yourself a big fresh fruit smoothie, sit down and enjoy it
  • Make a list of all the people you haven’t been in touch with in a while and schedule a time to call each of them
  • Write down what you have enjoyed doing so far during the day in your journal
  • Find a comfortable spot, close your eyes and enjoy the silence, sound of rain or chirping birds

If you have 30 minutes spare you can:

  • Call someone you haven’t talked with in a while and catch up on all the gossip you missed
  • Use your computer to look for ideas for your summer vacation
  • Take a soak in a tub full of your favorite bubbles or skin softener
  • Listen to your favorite CD
  • Go to your local store and treat yourself
  • Go for a walk and say hello to everyone you meet
  • Turn off the TV, phone and anything else that could disturb you and sit down and enjoy peace and quiet for a half-hour
  • Plan a quiet romantic meal
  • Write a letter to someone special and mail it
  • Discover a new recipe on the internet and plan to cook it for dinner
  • Replace any old photographs you have in frames with more updated pictures
Live your dream!
