Life today keeps us very busy and it is easy to forget to do things to satisfy ourselves when we spend all day working and taking care of the family. But doing things to feel better is also important. If you relapse, then you can’t help anyone. Pampering yourself ensures that your “batteries” are recharged and that you are not taking your tiredness out on someone else. Most people just love the idea of ​​taking a whole day and relaxing doing something they want to do. Those are precisely some ways to seek to feel better emotionally, to continue living life in a healthy way.

10 ways to feel better in minutes

The following are some ways to feel better and recharged during the day that will only take you 15 minutes or less to do.

Take a long shower

Get under the shower and just relax for 10-15 minutes without being disturbed. Let the water fall gently on you. Let the steam cleanse your lungs and sinuses. When you’re done, not only will you be clean, but you’ll feel refreshed and recharged.

Enjoy a favorite snack or drink

Go out for coffee or tea in a nice place. Find something that you enjoy. Allow yourself time to sit and savor the food. It doesn’t have to be a big plate of food, just a little treat that is the “culprit” of boosting your spirit.

Go out on the terrace and sit in the sun

Sunlight provides us with some vitamin D and can make us feel refreshed when we sit outside and absorb the heat of the sun. Some types of depression have been linked to a lack of sun during the winter months. If you work indoors all day under artificial lighting, it can really affect your mood and energy levels. If you need a quick energetic lift, get out in the sun and recharge.

Play a simple game

Most of us have access to smartphones these days. With those smartphones comes a myriad of simple yet entertaining and challenging games. Open your favorite game and have a few minutes of simple fun.

Listen to your favorite song

Put on your headphones, and whether it’s inside your house or while taking a walk in the park, put on your favorite song and listen to it as many times as you want. Sing, dance or just let yourself be carried away by that rhythm that you like so much. Music is a universally human experience and can strongly affect our moods. Find a song that makes you happy and light up a bit.

Call a friend

Call a friend and catch up. Talk about something that’s been on your mind or just talk about what you’ve been up to lately. Our friends can really cheer us up or improve our spirits if we feel worn out or drained.

Go out to walk

Go outside or in the park and walk around for a bit. Take a short walk around the parking lot at work. Walk to the store or restaurant and grab a quick bite to eat. Get up and get moving. Get the blood flowing. Get those endorphins pumping a little. We feel better after exercise or physical activity because our body releases chemicals that make us feel good. The sun and fresh air don’t hurt either.

Disconnect a little

Information overload is a common problem in our modern world. Take a break from the constant stream of data and opinions, and just enjoy some quiet time. So, put aside your tablet, phone or laptop and enjoy the real world a bit.
