Q: How do I help myself feel better when my mood is low?

A: Whenever you feel down, here are three practices you can do to instantly lift your mood, whenever you want!

Smiling increases the level of Serotonin, a happy chemical in our brain. This makes smiling an important practice for increasing our mood whenever we want, instantly!

Express gratitude
The trick to a successful gratitude practice is to never repeat. Focus on the heart based wisdom things, experiences, and people who contribute to your life. This allows you to deepen your feeling of gratitude in your daily gratitude practice. Example: "I am grateful for my dog" vs "I am grateful for the unconditional love and companionship my dog adds to my life."

Be optimistic
We have an optimism center of our brain that when used, increases our mood!
