New Year, New Discoveries- Five Simple Ways to Lift Your Mood in 2021

As we head into the next year of working from home, many of us find ourselves needing to find other ways of feeling refreshed. Here, we compile five easy ways to lift your mood whilst staying safe at home.

1- Prioritise your Mental Health

This year has been emotionally challenging, and so it's now more important than ever to look out for your mental health. Why not pick up a set of prompt cards and try taking five minutes out of your day to draw one and reflect on what it could mean for you?

Take a second to center yourself with these calming prompt cards.

Get to know yourself better by reflecting on these important questions.

If your goal next year is to advance your career, these cards will help you figure out how to make that happen.

2- Start Cooking

Cooking is one of the simplest and most sincere home pleasures. If you don't cook or feel that you'd like to expand your repertoire, this is the time to do it. Not only is it a great meditative task, cooking your food from scratch will also make you feel healthier. To make this even easier and push yourself outside of your comfort zone, try a recipe subscription box.

4. Take Up a Hobby

Find something you can be doing in your free time whilst at home; this will give your day a bit more structure and prevent you from feeling like you've been unproductive. Also, having a project ongoing will help you to feel that you're working towards a tangible goal, which is very positive for your mental health.

5- Relax!

This hasn't been an easy year, so whilst it's important that you be proactive as you prepare for 2021, it's also important to not put too much pressure on yourself. Getting through this strange, lonely year has been an achievement in itself, so treat yourself kindly as it comes to a close.
