We all have some happy days and some not so happy days. There are days when we are little moody and donโ€™t feel that good. I surely have days like this when I donโ€™t want to talk to anybody and like to be alone. Surely, there are things which make us all happy and change our mood. I also have few such things that not only help me to change my mood but also make me happy. Sharing a list of my mood boosters that I am thankful for –

  1. Good food– I am a foodie and the good thing is my husband is also a big foodie. There are people who do not eat when they are angry or sad but I am the opposite. I eat more when I am sad. Not only eating but cooking makes me happy. Anything which diverts your mind is a mood enhancer. Food tops the list for me.
  2. Music and dance – Do you know I have a small boom box in my kitchen? I love listening to songs and songs are always playing in the background even when I am writing. Dancing also is something which can change my mood completely. When I am dancing, I forget everything.
  3. Talking to my daughters- I love spending time with my daughters. Although one is a teen and a tween, with a lot of mood swings themselves, it’s fun to be with them. Now they are more like friends to me and itโ€™s nice to hear their stories about school and friends. As they say, you cannot be sad around children. I agree completely and they both are bad mood busters.

There are many small things like a good cup of tea, a hug, a chat with a friend, a call from a loved one and going out in the sun which are also helpful when I am not feeling too good.

Shopping is also one of the mood boosters that I am thankful for and it makes me happy. I am sure all women are going to agree on this one.

What about you? What are the things that improve your mood?
