All of us have down days occasionally, but there are some ways to brighten your mood no matter what has happened.

I’ve had so many hard things happen to me in life, like many of you, I know.

I promise you can overcome anything, even if it’s just a pesky down mood.

Things outside of life circumstances like the weather, a rude comment, or even just a bad day can all put a damper on our mood pretty quickly.

Try some of these ways to brighten your mood next time you’re just feeling blue.

Some work better than others, but you can bet I try every one, to see which one finally works.

And usually, one ends up being the magic bullet!

1. Take a Walk

When I really need to deal with stress, I’ve found one of the best ways to brighten your mood is to just take a walk.

I put on my sneakers, head outside, and just walk.

I don’t time it, don’t worry about how fast I go, and I just deal with my day.

It usually works every time.

Walking induces endorphins in the brain, which spike a positive mood quickly.

Even if nothing gets better, it really does help lift the sour mood.

If it’s cold out, I’ll go for the indoor method on the treadmill, or use one of the other ways to brighten a mood below.
