When you have anxiety you can become overwhelmed with dread and you forget to enjoy the world. Doing these 6 things daily can give you a sense of accomplishment that just might improve your outlook on today & tomorrow.

1) Make your Bed.

Making your bed as soon as you wake up will make you feel like you have accomplished something even before your day begins. Not to mention it will make your room look cleaner which will automatically improve your mood. Hey, if you won’t take my word for it maybe you will listen to a Navy Seal Admiral!

2)  5 Minute Morning Yoga! 

 

 

3. Go Outside.

When you have Anxiety or built up Stress it can be hard to get out of the house and enjoy the world. If you have a busy schedule and can’t seem to find time to take a long walk or go to the park and have a picnic even a quick 5 minutes of outside time can help improve your outlook on life.

 

Walk

Get Outside and Be Happy!

 

4) Do a 1 Song Workout!

As we learned from Legally Blond,

 

Endorphins.ElleWoods.RelaxedMomma

Not only does the 1 song workout give you Endorphins and make you happy but research has shown that people who listen to music while working-out exercise harder and for a longer period of time. 1 song workouts get you moving while only taking up 5 minutes of your time. If you want a longer workout you can combine a few different 1 song workouts and make a 30-minute workout. Check out my board of 1 song workouts that I found on Pinterest and start Working out NOW!

 

5) Listen to Music.

Listen to whatever music you like. Listen while you clean the house, while you’re driving, or while you are making dinner. Check out this short informative video I found on Sunnybrook Hospitals YouTube Channel and find out the importance of music and how it affects your brain.

 

6) Read.

Just a couple of pages before bed can help you fall asleep quicker and put you into a deeper sleep. It will also keep you off your cell phone and TV before bed which has a very negative impact on your sleep cycle.

Reading can help reduce anxiety and make you feel accomplished

    I love putting on music and dancing! It really helps my anxiety – and helps me focus on something other than what’s bugging me at the moment. Love this post 🙂
