Happy, Happy Monday! This weekend was one that actually felt long and relaxing, which is so rare it seems. It was nice to unwind with no major plans. Friday Jared and I stayed in and did absolutely nothing-- it was glorious :) Saturday I had fun trip to the salon with my SIL and we both got to grab lunch with my mom afterward.
It's amazing what a mood-booster a quick trip to get your hair done can be! I hadn't cut my hair in honestly, who knows how long?! Probably at least 6 months, maybe more. The most amazing hair stylist in the world trimmed me up, gave me bangs again and basically made me feel like a celebrity! I'm sure every stylist compliments their clients to make them feel good (and I'm totally okay with that!) but she repeatedly told me how gorgeous my hair was and dang, does that feel good! Now if only I could actually style it the way she does… sigh, I'll never learn.
My fabulous new hair got me thinking about other things are InstaMood-Boosters… because certainly I should enjoy more of those whenever I can!
Like when you sing or dance for a little kid and they just clap and laugh and smile like you are the most entertaining human on the planet. For those few minutes, I always believe I'm hilarious.
Or soaking in a long, hot bath with new epsom salt that is scented with eucalyptus and peppermint. Whew, talk about feeling refreshed!
Getting something organized. Whether it was a day-long project you took on, or something as simple as a desk drawer with fun new, colorful trays… seeing something organized makes me happy.
A quick YouTube video you never get tired of laughing at. I may be immature but I never get tired of this one or this one. Also, watching any cute little kid on the Ellen Show is sure to boost your spirits too!
Working out is always a mood booster, as long as I can motivate myself to get it done. Getting started is the hardest part, but once I'm sweating it out? I feel great, I feel strong and healthy!
Photobooth. I've mentioned my love for this silly program time and time again, but it truly can make me laugh in a matter of minutes. Sure, it's fun to snap a cute picture of your new hair, but it's even funnier to play with the filters and laugh until you cry :)
What boosts your mood??
