Dance it Out!

It’s another edition of Feel Good Fridays. I actually used to do this, before I saw it on Grey’s Anatomy. It’s called “Dance it Out!”. Whenever you are stressed, it’s best to dance away your stresses. When in doubt, dance it out.

I love dancing to my favourite music, I find that I always feel better.

So, play your favourite tunes, and create your mini dancing party. Dancing makes you brave.

Write in a Journal

In this edition of Feel Good Fridays, I’m hear to talk about the benefits of writing in a journal. If you aren’t much a writer, you can draw a picture, or just jot down some ideas and feelings.

This is a post where I try to encourage us to incorporate small ways to make healthy choices and feel good about ourselves even on what appears to the worst day ever.

Writing in a journal is so simple. It has the power to help calm our minds from racing. You can write out a to-do list, which helps you organize your tasks and shows you which ones to prioritize the important ones, and what needs to be done next. You can write about your goals, and how to make them come true. You can use it to keep your goals on track.

It helps reduce stress, while increasing your creativity as well. It’s your journal, so you can decorate it, however you see fits your style. You can decide when and how often you wish to write in it. You can write every day, or weekly. There are no rules, make your own.

Take a Walk

Today is Friday, which means it is another edition of Feel Good Fridays. It’s where I talk about incorporating a small tip that has healthy outcome on our mental and emotional health. It is really important, more so right now, to focus on our health. Especially with the pandemic still lingering and interfering with our daily lives.

Sometimes learning to take a break from our stressful, and repetitive routines is exactly what we need.

It’s even better when the sun is out, since our bodies are soaking up all of these extra vitamins which is important to have, especially vitamin D, which is known as the Sunshine Vitamin. Vitamin D helps prevent diseases and keep depression at bay.

The best way to give yourself a new perspective is by taking a walk. It doesn’t even need to be a long walk, but as long as you get out of your house, and move. It does wonders for the body. It helps you destress you in a healthy manner. It helps digest your meals. It can help you have a good night’s rest.

You can explore a new area in your neighbourhood. Taking a daily walk helps helps strengthen your bones, and lowers your risk for Alzheimer’s disease. It can help sharpen your mind, too.

You can walk with a family member, or a neighbour, while maintaining social distancing with one another. Or you can listen to your music, or even listen to a Ted Talk, carefully while still obeying traffic rules. Or you can just walk in peace, enjoying the sounds of nature, the sky, and the flowers. Whichever way you do it, there is no wrong way.

Today, I plan on taking a walk to the library. I can’t wait to go. I like to listen to music when I walk. Although this time I was planning on taking a different route there, it’s always fun to mix things up.

Get out and enjoy the day! Your body will thank you.

Relax

In this edition of Feel Good Friday, I am encouraging everyone to spend some time relaxing. It is important to schedule in some time throughout the week to unwind.

If it’s possible you should spend the last 15 to 20 minutes of your day dedicating time for you to relax. Whether it is you writing in a journal, reading, meditating, practicing yoga, etc. Being able to spend time forgetting about your stresses and worries, is so beneficial to your mind and body.

It is a good feeling to just not think about your stresses. Don’t complicate it, you can simply unwind by watching your show, having a bubble bath. Your mind and body will thank you for it.

If you don’t make the time to relax or unwind, your body will pick a time for you. Trust me, it is better for you to pick the time to relax instead of your body.

Reading A Book

This is a late post from yesterday. I am writing about Feel Good Fridays. It’s where I write about ways to feel good about ourselves. Yesterday, I walked to the library, and I got a book that I wanted to read for a really long time. It’s called White Oleander.

I think reading is a good way to relax the mind. At least it does that to my mind. Reading makes me feel good. It’s a good way to unwind. Depending on what you are reading you can learn something from it.

Cleaning Up

When I was cleaning, I came up with a whole new post I can write about it. I feel like I have oved into a different direction of my blog. I want to write more posts about being positive, and ways you can better your life.

So I have come up with Feel Good Fridays. It’s about doing things that will help you feel better.

Today’s mission is about spending as little as 15 minutes, (or more, depending on how you are feeling) tidying up, it can be dusting, making your bed, cleaning your mug, maybe clean your bathroom.

You will not believe how much you will feel when you clean your surroundings areas. It makes a big difference. I’m glad that I cleaned my bathroom, swept and mopped my bedroom floor.

My mind instantly became calmer, and more relaxed. It was one less for me to do on my to-do list. You can start small with something like making your bed, and let yourself become inspired by doing other tasks, too.
