10 Ways to Instantly Improve Your Mood

We all have those days where we feel a bit crappy. However when those days spontaneously come upon you when you're busy, you can't just sit around watching the Vicar of Dibley and eating a copious amount of biscuits. What a shame. Here a 10 alternative methods to quickly improve your mood. 

  1. 30 Second Dance Party - If Grey's Anatomy has taught me anything it has to be the joys of a 30 second dance party. Put on your favourite song and dance it out.

  2. Sing - if you don't feel like dancing, sing at the top of your lungs instead. Rapping also works, especially to Nicki Minaj. 
  3. Smile - Smile at other people, smile at yourself, just keep smiling. 
  4. Dress like a sassy bitch -Put on your favourite outfit and best lipstick. This will make you feel confident and therefore improve your mood. The compliments will also make your day 10 times better.

  5. Talk to people - socialising makes you feel so much better. If you can talk to a friend you always have a laugh with or tell someone your problems.
  6. Tidy up - This is a weird thing for me to say as I am so messy but I always feel so much better once I have tidied up. I think the whole 'tidy room, tidy mind' thing works. 
  7. Go through funny twitter accounts - we all follow those funny twitter accounts that we can sit and scroll through for hours. Just take 5 minutes to sit and have a good laugh. I recommend Middle Class Problems and Woman Against Feminism (it mocks anti-feminists)
  8. Paint your nails - a little pamper is always uplifting
  9. Cat videos - best source of entertainment. Take a break and watch the cute kitties do silly things. 
  10. If all else fails, have a cup of tea.

Valentine's Day With IWOOT








Mug* 
(all £6.99)
(10 points for burning the egg to the bottom of the pan)
The lovely people over at IWOOT (iwantoneofthose.com) in the essence of all things lovey-dovey have sent me some fab Valentine's themes gifts to make my Valentine's day extra special. Now I will be spending Valentine's day alone (in a pile of books on British Politics) but that does not stop me from having Valentine's themed eggs. Yes eggs. Fried eggs saying Love and heart shaped boiled eggs. These are fab and you can use them on any occasion but they require one thing - the ability to make eggs well. That is a quality that I do not possess. The first time I cooked a boiled egg (i.e. the other day) it was half raw so I am yet to master the skill but when I do, heart shaped eggs in salads will be a regular thing. This is a perfect way to make your other half happy on the special day, permitting they like eggs of course. Alongside your super cute eggs on toast, you can serve it with a brand new mug. Who doesn't love a new mug? This one is quite accurate as it says, "good morning, let the stress begin". Story of my life. If you want to add even more thought into the day, why not make the card and use the love hole punch? Aw sweet. Alternatively if you fancy buying your other half something non-valentines related, have a peruse of the site, there are so many cute and fitting things. I will be purchasing these mason jar shot glasses (super cute). 

However if you're like me and are single, why not treat yourself and have a self-appreciation day. Tell you how much you love yourself via the use of eggs. It's 100% guaranteed to make you feel better about yourself.

(Don't worry you're not too late - next day delivery is only £3.95!)
