8 Ways to Relax and Boost Your Mood in the Mornings

I’m a nightmare in the mornings. Seriously. Usually, I either begrudgingly shoot out of bed or crawl out — negative thoughts already swirling in my brain. Before I’ve even started my day, I’m already tense and irritated.

Maybe you can relate to being stressed or negative before you even leave the house (or in my case, walk a few steps into the home office). Not surprisingly, this doesn’t set the best tone for your day. Here’s a list of easy-peasy tips to perk up your mood and relieve any tension every morning.

1. Take a hot shower.

Water is known for having calming effects. A shower can soothe any aches and pains and help you feel refreshed and ready for the day. It does a great job of washing away your grogginess, too. (And you smell better! It’s a win-win for everyone.)

  1. According to the twitter “mood” study most people do not experience this. This has caused a great deal of dismay for those who do and this is a fantastic article to help with this situation.

    The other issue is that many people who do experience this did not get enough sleep due to sleep apnea and that should be checked.

    Some will of course maintain that it is due to some chemical imbalance and will request a magic pill.
