You read that correctly. Eating chocolate will improve your mood. However, for best results, try to eat chocolate that’s made on-site opposed to processed chocolate.
It should come as no surprise that laughter is on this list. When you’re in a bad mood and you watch something funny and laugh, how do you feel? Much better, at least relatively. Laugh more. It’s good for you.
Go For A Jog
You might not want to do it, and it might seem hard as hell for the first quarter-mile, but once your body adjusts, you’re going to be addicted to jogging. This is one of the best ways to release more endorphins into your blood stream.
Get A Massage
What could possibly be more relaxing? Some people think it’s even better than going on a tropical vacation, and it’s often found right around the corner. Unwind and feel the endorphins flow.
Eat Your Favorite Food
So, your favorite food is chicken parmesan? Not healthy, right? Well, that’s not exactly true. Regardless of what you have at the top of your “Favorite Food” list, when you eat it, you’re happy. This reduces stress levels and boosts endorphins. That being the case, eat more chicken parmesan or ice cream; just be sure you don't overdo it
The next time you’re driving down the road with your significant other and you’re about to reach your weekly restaurant destination, turn the car in a different direction and head to a drive-in movie, the top of the tallest building in your area, or a scenic overlook. Spontaneity makes you feel more alive, which boosts your endorphins and happiness. Break your routine!
Have A Glass Of Wine
A glass of wine can do wonders in boosting endorphins and improving your mood. This is also good for heart health.
Eat Spicy Food
Some things in life are misunderstood, such as spicy food. It’s often thought that only the daring would eat spicy food. But the trust is that it gives you a kick and wakes up your entire body, which then makes you feel more alive.
Sing Along To Your Favorite Song
It doesn’t matter if it’s at home, in your car, at a concert, or at the park, when you sing along to your favorite song, you’re strengthening that emotional connection, which then leads to a feeling of happiness. Plus it's just a great feeling of freedom and exuberance.
You don’t need to go for a walk. Simply put down your smartphone or turn off the TV and take a walk to the mailbox. When your cooped up inside all day and your body feels the sunrays, you’re going to feel an energy boost – a happy one.
