When life events around us start to feel too much to bear or we notice that we feel ‘down’ more often than normal, there are some simple but effective strategies that may keep us moving forward, and able to cope no matter what life may throw in our direction. Try any one (or more) of these simple ‘remedies’ that I have used and recommend to my clients, and see if they can also help you.
Eat breakfast. Sounds simple enough, right? You would be amazed how skipping or just grabbing ‘a coffee to go’ can affect our mood and energy levels. Try to have something as easy as a cup of yoghurt or a banana and let the serotonin levels in your brain (that make us feel better) get working. See if it doesn’t make a difference for you.
