What can I do to feel better fast?

Things are tough for everyone right now.

School is virtual. That job you were so excited about decided it isn’t hiring right now. Many fall sports are cancelled. And, social distancing means that you may barely get to see your friends.

To make things more challenging, what we usually do to feel better, our routines and habits to keep us feeling good, might not be safe right now.

We can’t be with our friends as easily. We can’t go to the gym. We can’t take a painting class. We can’t even go to the movies.

So, what CAN we do to feel better fast?

Something different.

Just taking some kind of physical action is going to make you feel a little better. For example, find a TikTok dance and learn those moves.

Change your situation, even when you don’t feel like it, and you can change your mood.

You can also begin a new way of exercising or start a hobby that you’ve been thinking about for a long time (like drawing or listening to music), but never had a chance to do.

Do something different and pay attention to how you feel. Small things can make a big difference. Start today.
