12 things to put you in an INSTANT good mood



-exercise: we've all heard it. this number ONE tip experts give for boosting your mood..fast. plus it gives you more energy. ben and i have been trying to go to the gym together daily and we get at least another hour out of our day.
-eat breakfast: it will prevent grumpiness and help you perform.
-speak up: being assertive enhances self confidence and shuts down feelings of helplessness.
-focus on making memories: researchers found that 57% of people reported they were happier when they spent money on an experience. 
-go outside: just five minutes of walking in the great outdoors has beneficial effects. i need it to be summer so we can go on BIKE RIDES.
-hug it out: it is critical that we have some sort of physical affection in your life.
-face your challenges: who would have thought? actually doing the things on your to-do list is beneficial. the more you put things off, the more anxious you are. no bueno.
-say something nice: compliment people! and do it a lot.
-be grateful: have an attitude of gratitude. and make sure that you write things down that you are grateful for.
-savor your snapshots: take the time to look at those photos you have on your refrigerator and taped to your computer.
-less white stuff: sugar and flour can lead to an energy and mood crash.
-remember to laugh: tell jokes, laugh at jokes, and laugh at yourself.
