Feeling a little overwhelmed with 2021 already? We don’t blame you; it’s been a crazy year thus far and it is only January! The TastyMoments team have been doing some homework and we’ve found a couple of science-backed methods to making yourself feel better.
1. Beat The Blahs With Exercise:
It’s probably the last thing you feel like doing when you’re down, but exercise is a great way to boost your mood. Why? Exercising helps our brain release endorphins – your body’s own feel-good chemical. While it might not cause happiness, it will certainly make you feel better.
2. Learn To Let Go:
Holding on to stress and anger can make us sick and depressed. Forgiveness and a little bit of “hakuna matata” vibes go a long way to making you feel better. It may seem an impossible task but when you let go of past hurts and resentments, you give yourself permission to heal and move on with your life. With a bit of practice, it can be done!
3. Take It Easy On Yourself
When you master the art of being kind and caring to yourself, you will almost certainly feel better. Most often, we’re our own worst enemies and all our negative self-talk and criticism can really impact your frame of minds. When you talk to yourself, ask what you would tell your best friend if they were facing the problem. Chances are you’d be a lot more supportive, understanding and kind. Try and cultivate the habit of speaking to yourself the same way you would your best friend.
4. Avoid Eating Alone:
Eating alone is a real downer. Create the habit of sitting down with friends or family over meals. Lucky for you, Ital Pizza Familia is and easy dinner meal, ideal for sharing, so you have the perfect excuse to make more shared moments over a slice. Besides, pizza is a mood booster in itself, so it’s a win-win!
Remember, you are not alone. As they said in the film The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, “Everything will be alright in the end so if it is not alright it is not the end.”
