When you’re feeling liking the world is on your shoulders, you should engage in outdoor activities that will lift your mood. These are eight that will get you feeling lighter again.
Go on some amusement rides. They will get your adrenaline pumping. This will help you get in touch with your inner child that has probably been pushed to the background with all the stress that you have been dealing with in your life in generals
After the amusement rides, go to the aquarium. Watch how the fish just swim from one place to the other with no real goal in mind other than to eat. Watch the dolphin show and marvel at the intelligence of these near-extinct creatures. If the show leader asks for a volunteer raise your hand and participate as the leader encourages the dolphin to perform some tricks with you.
When the dolphin show is over take a long walk on the beach. Take off your shoes, roll up your jeans and walk in the shallow water of the waves that have just crashed. Pick up some sticks and throw them into the waves, one by one. Watch as each one is take away by the current.
Picture these as the problems that you have been worrying about. Can you do anything about them? Probably not. The current represents a higher being or source, it’s different for everyone, who will take your problem and resolve it. Take comfort in this and once your hands are empty, be grateful for all the things that have already been resolved in your life. You can visit this great site for carnival rides for hire.
Then go and get yourself and ice-cream on a cone, or an ice-lolly. This will make you feel like a kid again. Another activity that can help you feel like a child again is to colour in a picture in a colouring book. Winnie The Pooh or Tinkerbell or something geared a bit more toward adults. The choice is yours.
Then watch some of your favourite movies back-to-back. Choose films that are light in their film content, like romantic comedies or action-packed dramas that all have happy endings and will, as a result lift your mood.
After this packed day, or weekend, take the time to journal. Write about the things that make you happy and those that make you sad and give reasons as to why they do so. Question whether your feelings are validated or if they are just nightmares that you have created from your fears. Focus on writing all the things for which you are grateful after this and you will have successfully turned your mood around.
