Think of an activity that you like to do and can do where you are right now. Maybe start with something small that will make you feel a little bit happier. This could be listening to a song, making your favourite snack, looking at a picture. Whatever it is, go and spend a few moments doing this activity and enjoy the feeling of happiness. Once you’ve enjoyed the moment, start your go-to list of mood boosting activities, noting down how they make you feel. In the future when you need a boost, go back to your list and choose an activity that might help or give you a break from whatever is going on.
