This week in the first installment of 5 Ways to Stay Happy and Mentally Healthy we welcome Amy, from lifestyleandcookies.
Hello, Lucy’s lovely readers&followers,
I am Amy from over at lifestyleandcookies and I can’t wait to share this blog post with you!
I recently came across Lucy’s tweet about doing a guest post, about 5 things I do to keep happy. Mental health is so important to me, and keeping happy is definitely the main factor and a focus in my life. Everyone is different and everyone finds keeping themselves happy in different ways! But here are 5 ways that I keep myself happy!
1.Reading a book: I love reading a book. From a very young age, I have loved to read, and as I have grown up reading a book is a way to keep myself happy. I feel a book simply does the trick! I love getting involved and invested in a book, whether it is just to occupy myself with something else and involving myself in another person’s life. It makes me feel happier, and more at ease with myself. It also develops my imagination and creativity, so perfect for blog post writing!
2. Blog post planning: I love blog post planning! Blog post planning makes me so happy, as it kind of gets me away from a bad mood and uplifts my mood! It definitely makes me feel happier when I get a nice response to a blog post, it makes me happier! Blog post planning, I also know that once my blog post is up, it can help one of my readers.
3. Having a bubble bath: A bubble bath is one of my favourite things to do. I love having a bubble bath to clear my mind and just relax my brain and muscles. I love having a lush bubble bath, as I love the scent and the bubbles it creates. I sometimes use my Zoella bubble bath as well, as I love the sweet smell. Having a bath lets me think and reflect on my day, so I definitely love having a bubble bath. I have been using the Champney’s bubble soap recently!
4. Listening to music: Listening to some good and happy music makes my mood better. I love listening to music, as I am focusing on the song, and also an upbeat song, makes me want to dance along! This definitely makes me feel happier!
5. Gym: I know the gym! How boring? Recently, I have been going to the gym a lot more! Not only is it good for your body, but it is good for the mind. When you exercise it produces more endorphins (happy hormones) and makes you less tired and agitated. Going to the gym makes me feel less tired and more motivated to go and do something! The gym makes me feel less stressed and happier!!!
