Mood Raisers


Recommended Posts

Thought it would be fun to make a list of things that improve your mood, self care, vibration raisers, other than meditation and journaling. Please add to it if you have ideas. 


Write down how you want to feel, and anything that occurs next to the word and do it. 

Play with a puppy

Get a massage

Go swimming

Buy a package of self stick googly eyes and put them all over everything in your friend's house when they aren't home. If they are spiritual tell them it enhances awareness.

Call a friend.

Message an old friend you haven't talked to in a long time.

You need to integrate the I my friend.   That's your challenge from me for what its worth.  I don't think you listen though.  Pass if you want, it's your choice.  

You need to stop telling people what they need to integrate.  It's really arrogant.  Youre not her psychiatrist.

One overlooked mood raiser is lots of good food.  I remember when I was drinking a high quality smoothie in the mornings and my body would just be singing its praises to me.   Lots of antioxidants.  I have a Vitamix so I'm getting the fiber too.  Juicing strips all that healthy fiber out.  Kale is more palatable to drink than to eat for me because I can add yogurt or almond milk or something to mask that bitter flavor.  Two others I would say are a daily meditation ritual and getting a little physical exercise every day.  These work for me.  Getting offline for part of the day!  This last one works wonders too for all of us Internet folk.  The trolling online takes a toll on your mood.  Just sitting in front of a screen all day takes a toll.  Getting out to nature a little bit everyday elevates my mood.  When I say nature I mean something like a forest if possible.  Some place where animals and trees outnumber humans by a long shot.  Wilderness.  Mother Nature.  Another one would be going out and doing something with a friend where you're around a lot of people.  Something that rejuvenates you socially.  A trip for example a place where there's a lot of people having fun.  We like to resonate with a herd of humans too as social animals.  My best friend and I went out tonight and I got my little social fix and I feel great.  I cannot be online it has to be in person.  Going to a shopping mall can do this for me sometimes.  Another often overlooked one is having some true alone time where you're not doing anything (not even meditation) except just enjoying yourself being by yourself.
