Up to 80% of women can be affected by ‘the baby blues’ after they give birth. They can expect to feel down for a while after having their baby. If the blues last for more than two weeks It might be a good idea to seek professional help. But here are some tips to help boost your moods just a little bit, wherever you can.

Light A Candle

Flickering flames (safely contained) can burn away stress and help us feel better.

Buy Some Flowers

Flowers can make us more productive and provide us with an instant and lasting mood boost.

Look At The Colour Green

Psychologists say green is connected with happiness and can create feelings of it. Surround yourself in green, use a green pen and wear green clothes!

Gratitude

Count your blessings. Think about or write down what you’re thankful for. Even if there’s not time to write down everything, expressing gratitude creates an instant mood boost.

Peace & Quiet

Go somewhere less noisy, less external stimulation can help relieve a bad mood.

Listen To A Happy Song

Listening to a happy song can be an instant mood-lifter. And singing along can be even better!

Laugh

Laughter can relieve anxiety and make us feel better. Even when there’s no reason to laugh, laughing might give you more reason to laugh.

Smell Helpful Smells

Smelling the scent of Orange or Lavender can reduce anxiety and improve your mood.

Look For Small Miracles

Gathering positivity by noticing things like butterflies, an act of kindness, something beautiful can help to keep a happier outlook on the world.
