Good moods don’t come naturally to me. I’m not saying that bad moods do either, but staying in a good mood from the time I wake up to the time I crawl back into bed isn’t something that just happens. I have to work to make it happen. Whether it’s thinking happy thoughts, eating the right foods, making sure I’m not spending too much time on the couch, etc – I try to do things each and every day to make sure I stay in the best mood possible. And because I think happiness should always be contagious, I thought I’d share some quick and easy mood boosters!
