2020 has been a wild ride. Between quarantine, the state of the world, upcoming election and just day-to-day stresses, it's easy to get in a funk. We've all been there. But, it takes just a minute to flip your good vibes switch back on! Try these 5 simple mood boosting tricks:

  1. Get That 'Ish Done!: Stressed over your to-do list? It might sound simple but just tackle it. Get in focus and just start crossing things off. Even if it's as simple as taking the trash out first.
  2. Get Your Sweat On: It's crazy how much better I feel the second I start or am done working out. You might want to do anything aside from working out, but once you're done I guarantee you will feel 100x times better once the endorphins start kicking in.
  3. Play Music: It's so simple, but it does the trick every single time. Put on your favorite track or even a curated playlist and don't be afraid to shake it off!
  4. Shower: Did you know water repels negative energy??
  5. Connect: Don't go overboard and burden a pal complaining, but talking about whatever is bothering you to a friend or coworker can help wonders and if you're just in a funk, connecting with someone socially can instantly lift your mood. Happiness is truly contagious -- spread it forward!
