There are plenty of little pick-me-ups you can implement to help improve your mood and make your day. Nothing will annoy you after trying a few of these, overly perky barista included.
Take in Nature
Head outside to get rid of the “blahs”. It’s difficult to feel down when you are exposed to a gorgeous day. Exposure to sunlight helps to improve your mood by lowering your heart rate. This will help to alleviate your feelings of negativity and put you in a better mood.
