Easy Mood Boosts for 2021


After struggling through the pandemic for a year, everyone has been left feeling… well, a little flat. Glum, dejected. Even if you weren’t facing the brunt of Covid-19 on a daily basis, the likelihood is that it will still have impacted your day-to-day life. So, if you’re looking for a few ways to step back into your old skin and shuck off the year we all wish we could forget, look no further than these easy steps towards a brighter tomorrow.

Declutter

This doesn’t necessarily mean getting rid of things. If you have amassed tons of stuff through online shopping during the pandemic, then you’re not alone. In some countries, there was a national cardboard shortage in 2020 just due to the sheer quantity of Amazon packages flying through every letterbox up and down the country. Some things you might want to keep but, now we’re heading back into the land of having people over for dinner, drinks, movies, barbecues, you might need to free up some extra space. It’s worth looking at self storage cost to see if this might be a viable option for you.

Self-storage isn’t just for if you’re moving house - these units can be used simply if you’re having a reshuffle and want to try out new options with your space. They can also be hugely beneficial to see if you’ll miss things. If you find yourself constantly popping back and forth to the storage unit, then there are clearly items you’re missing. But, if you make it six months without a single trip there, perhaps it’s time to consider selling some unwanted items.

Take yourself on vacation

There are so many reasons that vacations are important for our physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. Whether you want to go alone, with friends, or with your partner, a vacation after a year or more of being trapped inside is exactly what we all need. Not only that, but an amazing holiday will create memories that will stay with you forever.

If you have been isolating yourself alongside a partner, then a change of scenery is exactly what’s needed to rejuvenate you both. Not only that, but a holiday can be a great way to improve your physical health. With pretty much all of us lacking a commute, so walking to and from work, or shopping, or even just the park has been off the table, so going somewhere else and exploring different scenery and locations will get the blood flowing again and give you that crucial boost.

Reflect and be thankful

This might not be what you want to hear right now, but trying to find things to be thankful for can improve your mood. Many of the rules related to Covid are very similar to how people suffering from extreme onsets of depression feel. Limited contact with friends, family and loved ones, and the outside world in general. A pervasive sense of worry and helplessness. It’s no wonder that women’s mental health has become worse during Covid, with 39% of women now reporting symptoms of depression and anxiety. 

One way you can try to boost your mood is to remember that there are things to be thankful for - and noting them down. There are some great prompts to get you started, and even thinking about some of them might lift your spirits. Listing three things that made you smile this week, for example, or silly things your kids did today.
