1. Self-CareWhen we think about self-care, perhaps we automatically think of something along the lines of taking a long bath or doing our nails. However, there are other options! Self-care is anything that helps you feel more grounded, at peace, and calm. So, indulge in self-care whenever you feel low. If meal-prepping is your thing, go for it! Meal prep for the week. If you like going on a run in the sun, try going for a short run (it can also help against menstrual pain!). Otherwise, if all you need is a day in bed with a nice-smelling candle and a movie marathon, treat yourself.
2. Reach Out to FriendsWe know – when you feel low, perhaps the last thing you want to do is talk to people. However, it might be just what you need. If you feel particularly sad or lonely, giving a call to your best friend or someone you care a lot about can be a simple solution to the problem. Before rolling your eyes and thinking really, that’s the tip??? Try it out. You’ll be surprised at how much laughing on the phone with a friend can change your mood within a matter of minutes.
3. Write Down Your AccomplishmentsNow, this one may be a bit different. When we feel low, it can feel like everything is going wrong. Because of this, simply changing our mindset from one focused on negativity to one that’s all about seeing the glass half full can do wonders. Make a list of all the accomplishments you have made over the past few weeks. Take a moment to let it sink in and congratulate yourself.
