No matter how much we all want to go through life with no cares or worries in the world, the unfortunate truth is that every single one of us will go through a rough patch or two over the course of our lives. It doesn’t have to be a full-blown depression or a life-changing bout of sadness; even the smallest ‘funks’ and low moods can negatively affect you on a day to day basis. The trick is knowing what to do in order to get yourself out of such a mood, because you don’t want to spend too long feeling like that. Here are eight ways to pick yourself up when you’re feeling down.
1. Practise Gratitude
Instead of falling into a funk by getting jealous and down about the things that you do not have, try to focus and be grateful for the things that you do have. By doing this, you will be able to see how much better your life is that your mind is trying to tell you.
