Guide out of a bad mood

Quick Tips


Try to smile, even if you don’t feel like it. Psychologically even smiling a fake smile lifts our mood.


Stop and visualise yourself as a calm and happy person. Your imagination is powerful.

Go Green

It is said that psychologically the colour green brings happiness. Put on something green to wear, grab a green blanket or get out amidst some green trees.

Cuddle and Snuggle

Snuggling up in a soft blanket can significantly boost your mood. So can a cuddle from a loved one or a hug from a friend.


Doing things for other people can instantly make us feel better. Donate to charity, hold the door for someone, buy somebody some flowers or take the time to compliment them.
