11 Post Weekend Mood Enhancers

During a long weekend things can get out of control and you momentarily lose your emotional balance, there are any number of little things you can do to regain it. Here are ten tools to help get you started.

1. Wash your hands and face, brush and floss your teeth.

It cools and cleans the parts of your body that you use most frequently, which is relaxing, and gives you that "fresh start" feeling.


2. Put on clean socks and some shoes that you haven't worn in a few days.

Shoes take a day or two to release any moisture they have absorbed, and this is a very easy way to put a little pep back into your step. Clean socks and underwear are essential in feeling normal again.

3. Give yourself a good shave (face or legs).

This is another instant refresher. Especially if you have sensitive skin or the weather is dry. Plus, when we know we are looking our best, we naturally feel better.

4. Look at any trophy, degree, or certificate of achievement that you have earned. 

And if it isn't framed and on the wall, frame it now. These are reminders of your accomplishments, and taking in your success is important to maintaining your self-esteem.

5. Remember your last (or greatest) success...

...Even if it's that ride you scored 2 weeks ago, yeah - that was nice. You go Glen Coco.

6. Know you are the person your loved ones think you are.

Especially your dog. That bitch loves you.

7. Wash your car.

Inside and out. When our wheels are shiny, we feel better. If you don't think this applies to you, just remember how you felt the last time you got a ride in someone's very clean car.

8. Organise your closet

Get rid of anything that no longer fits. Old clothes may come back into style, but you really don't want them on hangers for the next twenty years. Throwing out the old makes room for the new.

9. Cook yourself a lovely meal

Even if it's just a nice big bowl of pasta with some yummy tomato sauce and some grated cheese on top. Maybe throw in some garlic bread, if you're that fancy.

10. Watch one of the following:

Old School, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him To The Greek, Superbad, Wedding Crashers, Zoolander...

11. Change your sheets

Clean fresh sheets are the ultimate keys to happiness.
