Paint your nails
Painting your nails can be a tedious task, but it is also enjoyable and a great way to boost your mood. I love picking out different colors to match my mood. Usually I go for a yellow/gold or something with sparkles. Check out some of my favorite colors here!
Read a Devotional
I absolutely love reading a daily devotional. A good one is The 365 Most Important Bible Passages for Women. This book has stories from he bible that relate back to everyday life in the eyes of a woman.
Try a New Recipe
It is always fun to try out a new recipe. I love crockpot recipes. I came across a really good recipe for Chicken Chili by Laura at Joyfoodsunshine.com, and it is gluten-free! And If you like soup, you can check out my post on Where to Find the Best Gluten Free Soup.
Take Some Vitamins
Did you know that a lot of our mood depends on certain vitamins and minerals in our body? Lacking Magnesium and Vitamin D can make your mood plummet. I use Magnesium Oil to help with tons of things in life. including my mood 🙂
Do your Hair and Make-up
They say that if you look good, you feel good. I am a strong believer in this. Whenever my hair is done or I put a little mascara on, I feel a little better. You can even check out some make-up tutorials on YouTube such as this neutral look by Melissa Marie!
Online shopping has become super easy and affordable. With many websites offering free shipping, such as Amazon, online shopping is growing. I love to window shop but sometimes it is hard to get out of those pjs. So, I online shop, or at least make “wish lists” for my hubby to see. A few great places for any online shopping are Amazon, Ebay, Overstock, and Etsy.
Watch Something Funny
Having a good laugh can definitely help boost your mood. Watching funny videos on YouTube is a great place to start. Have you seen the Kohl’s Cash video from Amanda Bell? If you haven’t watched any of her videos yet, you should! She is down to earth and brings out laughter every time!
Read a Good Book
Sometimes, all you need is a good book to lift your spirits. Personally, I love reading. A must read author is Jodi Picoult. She writes melodramatic non-fiction. The Pact is my absolute favorite book by her! Check it out if for a good read.
Do Some Journaling
Journaling can be a huge release. Try writing down three things you are grateful for. Or maybe write your goals outfor the next month.
Call a Friend
Talking it out with one of your besties is a great way to boost your mood. Sometimes all you need is someone to listen. A best friend somehow always knows what to say to make you feel better, I know mine does!
Watch a RomCom
One of my favorite RomComs is How To loose a Guy in Ten Days. This movie is the perfect mood booster. It’s about a girl who “pretends” to date a man while trying to get him to break up with her in ten days! It stars Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson.
Do a Craft
Revamping old furnish is all the fuss now a days. Hit up your DIY Pinterest board and tackle a new craft. Check out my craft in Pinterest Board for some good ideas!

Go for a Walk
Our bodies crave Vitamin D, especially if you live in a less sunny state. Going for a walk boosts the endorphins in your body hence boosting your mood. Whenever I’m having a rough day, sunshine always helps me feel better!

Hold a Baby
Babies can bring out the best in people. Babies have a way at making people laugh, and I love that. If you can, hold a baby and crack a smile 🙂
Have a Glass of Red Wine
Hmmm, Wine. Wine is a great way to wind down your day. Having the occasional glass of wine helps with relaxing. My favorite is Fortissimo. I’m Italian, so this one is a little biased, haha.
Take a Hot Bubble Bath
What a better way to help boost your mood than a bubble bath. Throw some Dr. Teals Lavender Epsom Salt in there and soak up! This will relax your muscles and help detox your body.
Grab a Cup of Coffee or Tea
Coffee and Tea have a way of making people happy. Chamomile Citrus from Mighty Leaf is one of my favorites for needing a calming reminder that everything will be okay. And for coffee, well, Dunkin Donuts is fantastic. They also have happy hour in the afternoons where coffee is only $1 for any size!! Woot Woot.
Watch AFV on Netflix
If you have Netflix or access to YouTube, you totally need to check out AFV (America’s Funniest Home Videos). Each season is awesome and will give you a laugh.
