You're not alone if looking on the bright side feels more difficult than normal right now. People throughout the country are exhausted, jaded, and in desperate need of a spring in their step after a tumultuous year — with no visible cure in sight.
Good health is the ultimate luxury, and adopting a functional approach — preventing issues rather than treating them when they occur – makes a lot of sense, because how we want our bodies to work in the future should dictate how we act today. At the end of the day, it's about staying fit, active, and attentive. Rather than waiting until you're sick to see a doctor, it's time to concentrate on achieving and keeping excellent health. Here are some quick and easy improvements you can implement right now!
Make a list of things for which you are grateful.
Begin each day by jotting down three things for which you are grateful. Start with the three Ps: a person, a pleasure, and a promise for which you are grateful. It can be as basic or as complex as you choose, but writing down the things that make a good difference in your life might help you shift your perspective. It offers instant delight and joy, and it has the ability to switch your emotions on and off.
Take care of your body and mind.
When you're feeling sad, self-care should be at the top of your priority list. Consider incorporating the things that make you happy into your daily routine. It may be as simple as giving yourself a 15-minute home facial, applying a full face of make-up, or preparing a nutritious meal.
Keep hair back while you wash your face and apply products with White Trousseau’s cute and functional silk headband to accent your skin-care routine. Whatever it is, make it a priority and note the good feelings it gives.
Better Sleep, Better Mood.
The old adage "getting up on the right side of the bed" holds some validity. Sleeping can contribute to pleasant moods, regardless of which side of the bed you roll out of. And it makes perfect sense. If you sleep well, you will feel refreshed when you wake up. Your energy levels will surge if you get enough sleep. Life's tiny challenges will not upset you as much when your energy is high. You're not as angry when you're not annoyed. You are happy if you are not furious.
Silk pillowcases and sleep masks were the beginnings for White Trousseau. We'd want to get the word out about the advantages of sleeping with silk and join us on this journey and make better sleep a habit. The best kind of sleep is the one in silk!
Take a walk in nature.
The mental health advantages of spending time in nature are well-known. According to a recent study, most respondents experienced brighter emotions, improved memory, and greater attention span after just 50 minutes of strolling in a metropolitan park. If you add another 40 minutes to that, you'll see positive changes in your brain that will help you avoid depression.
Want to look stylish while taking a stroll outside? Fashion is finest when it is combined with functionality. Silk pyjamas are worn for more than just comfort. Here at White Trousseau, we designed our tops with breast pockets and bottoms with side pockets, so you can stash your small things anytime you need them. So step outside and regulate those cortisol levels, which means we're less likely to suffer from worry, poor moods, and stress, and take advantage of what's free – even a leisurely lunchtime stroll would suffice.
Boost Your Spirits with Essential Oils.
Do you have a bad mood or are you down in the dumps? As if shopping for beauty goods wasn't enough to lift your spirits, you can now buy beauty items with aromatherapeutic properties that will help you feel better in a hurry. White Trousseau offers a variety of soothing essential oils with scents that might help you feel better.
Essential oils are a wonderful method to naturally improve your mood without the negative side effects. Because of their potential to interact with the limbic system, essential oils can aid with mood difficulties in a variety of ways, from promoting a peaceful environment to naturally lifting your spirits.
An everyday meditation practice can truly modify the human brain's structure, helping to alleviate sadness, physical pain, and the type of mind wandering that leads to unending negative thoughts while also boosting awareness. Download a meditation app like Calm or Headspace and practice it every day, refusing to give up if it doesn't seem to be working. It's not a cure-all, but it can make you feel better: It's completely free. Go ahead and do it!
