If you are having a bad day or your mood is spoiled then you must try these easy steps to uplift your mood instantly:

1. Call up a friend 

If you want to be happy and calm, spend time around positive, happy people. Take out time and call up your friend or close loved one. You can also plan a get together or go meet someone and share and laugh it out.

2. Organize and Clean 

Getting organized can help us feel instantly better. Just get up and take up any small space and just organize and clean it. The sense of satisfaction and the view of the things in order will bring a smile on your face.

3. Look back at Happy Times 

Just open the phone gallery or go through old photo albums and look at the pictures or spend a minute or so thinking back on positive memories. 

4. Deep breathing exercises 

It is an easy and effective way to de-stress and improve the perception about things. Just sit quietly, focus on the breath, and take 10 deep breaths.

5. Count your blessings. 

Think about all the things that you have in life and write down what you’re thankful for. Being grateful can help you feel better.

6. Smile 

A small effort should be made to smile and think about positive events. When you smile it involves the facial muscles around your eyes, which send the signal to the brain to change which is linked to increased mood. Also spreading the smile creates a loop that may lead to more positivity in your life.

7. Eat what you like 

Chocolates, tea and carbohydrate-rich food are found to release happy hormones and thus can make one happy in a few seconds only.

8. Walk

Going out for walk or exercises helps increase blood circulation and releases hormones which make one happy from within. So wear your sports shoes and go out for a walk to help you feel more happy, healthy and confident.
