Feelin' Good - Ways to a Happier Self

One thing that even the happiest people suffer from, is down moments, the little moments in which you just generally feel miserable for no apparent reason. I want to share with you my favourite "Feel Goods" the little things that cheer you up, and (you ready to cringe?) turn that frown upside down! (I did warn you...)

Favourite foods and films. A complete and utter chill out is one of the best ways to become happier. One of my favourite DVDs, a tray of Hotel Chocolat deliciousness, and a glass of chilled champagne is one my go-tos when I feel in need of cheering up.

Gigs and concerts are a perfect way to forget about the whole world, and just spend a few hours either dancing along with your favourite artist, or laughing your socks off at your favourite stand-up. Micky Flanagan is an incredible stand-up comedian, and one of my all-time favourites. Considering he is playing at the O2 this year, he will be at the top of my feel-good list, and the perfect excuse for day/night out!

(For now, look at Micky's opinions on Men's Fashion = LOL)

You can purchase tickets for his Back In The Game 2013 tour at The O2 here; (Micky Flanagan tickets). I intend on getting tickets for the weekend shows, spending the day/night in London and keeping up the feel good with tons of shopping, extravagant restaurants, and a stay in one of London's best hotels. I'll see you all there... (Okay, I'm now sitting at my desk, wishing I was in London.)

Exercising. The complete opposite to my first feel good, although a lot healthier. Anyone who knows me will think "Is she kidding?" (I tend to be kind of very lazy) but, exercise does make you feel better. As you may, or may not know, exercise releases endorphins, also known as, "the feel good hormone," which gives you the euphoric feeling after exercising. Yoga is an ideal for making you feel good, thanks to how relaxing it is, you'll find yourself feeling completely calm and serene. So, something which makes you feel good, and look good... its a win-win, surely?!

(AC DC and other rock bands is the only music that gets me through my workouts...)

Shopping. It's no secret that I'm completely addicted to shopping. My favourite place for a day of shopping is London, thanks to the biggest shops, and the endless amount of little fashionable boutiques, and the perfect combination of high-street and designer fashion. And I guess you could use the "whilst I'm here" excuse, to head to the O2 arena, have dinner at one of their many bars and restaurants and see a show? Multiple feel-good activities in one night? YES PLEASE.

The Beauty Revamp. Hair dying, face masking, nail painting, it's completely true that if you look good, you feel good. Probably the most girly thing on this list, but for most a couple little beauty products can have you looking beautiful, and in a much more positive mindset. I like to slick on my favourite REN face mask and flick through the latest Vogue USA.

What are your favourite things to do to feel good? Let me know. I may have to give some of them a go myself...

  1. This is such a good post my lovely.. I agree with everything. Although my idea of making myself feel better is usually a hot bath and an insane amount of chocolate hehe. Have you changed your header? It's lovely xx

    1. Thanks Gemma! We don't have a bath, only a shower so it's not an option, haha! No I haven't, I did about a month back or something... Thank you! Xxx

  2. Micky Flanagan is our all-time FAVOURITE comedian! He's so hilarious, he makes me cry laughing! His 'doing f**k all' routine is one of the funniest things I've ever seen! I'd so love to watch him live!

    1. Isn't he just! I could sit for hours watching his clips on youtube.. I'm fact, I very often do...

    1. I should add an extra one at the end.. If you're Sam and Molly, dance around Tesco like you're in the twenties.
