Top tips to improve your mood

Get moving: Having an active lifestyle can contribute positively to your mental well-being, reduce stress, and fight off depression. Try to start with at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day.

 

Try something new: Routine can be a mood killer, so trying something new and out of your usual norm can improve your mood and give you a fresh perspective on life. Sign up for a course that you have been meaning to take, read a book you have always planned to read, take up a hobby that can feed you intellectually, or that is just fun. 

 

Limit screen time: Staring at a screen for hours on end can have a negative effect on your eyes, and your physical health. Strive to limit your screen time to less than two hours per day, and try reading a book, working on a puzzle, or bonding with people in your household.

 

Get your beauty sleep: An adequate amount of sleeping rejuvenates your body, improving your productivity, performance and mood while also reducing your risk of stress. As an adult you need at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep to gain all the benefits it provides.
