Spring clean your attitude
Take an hour a day for yourself
It’s always good to push the world aside and take the time to concentrate on yourself, especially when things get busy towards the end of the school year. Spend your “you” time painting your nails, giving yourself a facial, blogging, scrapbooking, having a bubble bath or doing anything that makes you feel great.
Soak up the sun
Bring your latest page-turner or even a pile of homework outside. Add a blanket, a snack and a smidge of SPF, and your good to go. Bonus? The Vitamin D your bod produces when you’re in the great outdoors can lead to a way better mood.
Lend a hand
Helping out more around the house will give you a satisfying feeling of accomplishment and will also strengthen your relationship with your parents. They will be really appreciative of your efforts to help out. You could fold clothes or weed the yard together. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to bond and chat about what’s been going on in each of your lives.
When you clean out your closet this spring, look up a local charity to donate all of your old clothes to. Helping others is a great way to help yourself. Reflecting on the happiness you could be bringing to those less fortunate than you is a great mood booster.
Make an effort
One of the most effective ways to feel really great about yourself is to say something you love about yourself every morning when you look in the mirror. Another great way to brighten you life up is to reflect each night on everything that you enjoyed about that day. Even if you had a crumby day appreciate some of the smaller details, like using a cute pencil or seeing a cool shaped cloud.
