10 Ways To Improve Your Day in Just 5 Minutes!
Five minutes doesn’t seem like a lot of time in the grand scheme of things, but it can mean making your day that much better (or worse)! In just five minutes, you can turn your tough day around to become a great day for you! It can also lower your stress level, raise your energy level, lower your blood pressure, AND give you just the right amount of inspiration you need to get through the rest of your day!
Take five minutes to try out one, several, or all of these tips to help you have a better day!
Stretch – No need to get into the downward-facing dog position! All you need to do is stretch your arms and legs for just a few minutes. Stretching can help improve your flexibility and circulation, and it can help ease any muscle tightness you may be experiencing!
Prioritize – No one’s in a good mood when things are thrown about helter-skelter. Go ahead and take a few minutes to put together a to-do list and prioritize what you need to do in your day. Nibble away at your list bit by bit, and you will find that you will not only get more work done but you will also be in a more positive mood!
When Life Gives You Lemons… - Sniff them! You heard me. When you’re stressed out (and have some lemons around), go grab one and take a few sniffs. Not into lemons? That’s okay – basil, juniper, and lavender do just fine when it comes to lowering your stress levels!
Clean Off Your Desk – Losing focus? Getting more and more negative as the day progresses? Stop what you’re doing RIGHT NOW and clear off your desk! Take a few minutes to properly file stray papers on your desk, clean up your coffee mugs, and generally declutter your workspace. You’ll find that you’ll work better than you have all day!
Meditate – If you find that your stress level is going through the roof, take a few minutes to get into a comfortable position and meditate. Just focus on your breathing and work on getting your stress level down. If you’re not into meditation, you can also try praying or finding a short, powerful mantra to help you get through your day.
Have a Laugh – In a bad mood? Feel like you’ll never shake your frown off your face? Go ahead and take a little time find humor in something! Put on a favorite comedy CD, watch a few clips from America’s Funniest Home Videos, or find a funny video on YouTube to watch and laugh at! You’ll find that once you start laughing, your bad mood will be withering away in no time!
