Boost Your Mood

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??

  1. I haven't gotten my hair cut since last July--it needs to be done but I put it off forever! I should try to see it as something enjoyable, like you do!

  6. Oh my gosh - the first weekend of college, my new roommates and I played with Photobooth so much, I was soooo close to wetting my pants from laughing so much! Such good times :) And I think it's been like a year or so since I've gotten a hair cut - yikes! Yours looks good though!

  18. LOVE your hair! Everyone is getting new do's and I need to jump on the wagon :) I love those pictures too. My mood booster is a piece of good chocolate or finding a happy/inspirational article (or a Kid President video).

  20. Lookin' good! I went to get my hair done for the first time since early October...it sure felt good! I love the little mood boosters! SSented Epsom salt baths certainly boost my mood! So does a little retail therapy.

  21. I haven't gotten my hair done in such a long time. It really needs it, but I always get so nervous about letting people cut my hair... I have issues. But I definitely need a change, for sure. As for mood boosters, turning on some music & dancing around my house always works for me!

  22. I have all wood floors throughout my house, so I'll start chasing my pup around in sock feet and eventually im laughing so hard at him sliding around and me nearly wiping out that I forgot why I was ever grumpy to begin with

  23. your hair looks great! I havent had mine done since before Thanksgiving but I will get it done before we head on vacation and get some color to it. Breanna boosts my moods daily lol though sometimes the whining and crying make me want to rip my hair out that usually is only for a bit & the rest of the day makes up for it!

    that last picture is hilarious!

  26. Cute cut! I rarely cut my hair because I'm afraid they'll cut it too short or Keith won't like it. So when I do, the weight is like lifted off my shoulders and it feels amazing!

  30. Your hair looks good! I just got my hair cut last week for the first in seriously a year. I suck at making hair appointments, but I feel so much better after I go. Kinda like after a good sweat sesh or making a baby/little kid laugh because I make funny faces or dance around like a fool. Gotta love mood boosters!! Glad you had a great weekend!

  33. I work for a company that "does" a Photo Booth and when we set it up in the office and pull out the props, I have a hay day-- it's so much fun. I could literally set it up EVERY DAY. And a good hair cut surely does make you feel nice and sassy! I got a trim last time I went (it had been forever) but I didn't get as much as I wanted off.. I think next time I am going to get something crazy done-- not too off the wall but something fun and different. You look great as usual!!

  34. Photo booth gets me every time! I end up laughing way harder than I should :) You look gorgeous! I'm in desperate need of getting a haircut, it's been since August but the one I scheduled just got cancelled. Maybe some day I'll get it cut ;)
