4 Ways To Feel Better Right Now!

Starting out this post I want to say one thing.  Feeling good all the time can be a struggle.  Most of us have hard or stressful lives.  We have a lot on our mind.  This is normal but should it be?  I know for myself I have many times where I don't feel my best and know I am able to feel better so today I am going to share with you 5 things to do that can help you feel better right now!
#1 Get moving.
I know this may sound tough if you are in a state of feeling bad or depressed but you need to do it to feel good right now.  I know when I am feeling low getting up and doing yoga can totally change how I feel in just a few minutes.  Even jumping up and down for 20 seconds can change my state to feel good.  For you it could be going and taking a walk and breathing in fresh air or playing your favorite sport. Whatever it is getting moving is the first thing you must do to feel better and more alive.  It will help give you the energy and motivation you need to set up your life for feeling better at most of life!
#2 Find what you love doing.
A great way to feel good right now is to find what you love doing and do it.  For me it could be spending quality time with Brittany, going to the gym and getting a good workout, making a video, writing a blog post, meditation,  or like I said in last section doing yoga. When I am doing these things I am out in the present and am having fun which instantly helps my mood and how I feel.
#3 Search help on YouTube and in books.
The internet can be a great way to find things that will make you feel better right now.  For me I watch many people that talk about self development. Watching these types of videos usually really helps me feel better fast.  This is also true for self help/development books.  I just re-read The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle and as I was reading I would find things in that book that would help me come into the present moment that I connected with.
#4 Breathe.
I cannot stress this enough. I talk about breathing a lot because it is very important and often overlooked. I forget to breathe a lot during the day and the second I take that deep breathe my chest becomes less tense and I feel more open.  My body is able to relax and so is my mind.  Instead of my mind wondering out of the moment and thinking about the past or future I am more able to be in the now and see that nothing right now is wrong so why should I be stressed or stop myself from feeling good right now?
Closing thoughts.
I hope that this blog helped you today become more happy about this moment right now.  With all we have going on in life it can be hard to think of these 4 steps and even hard to do them at times depending on how bad your situation.  But I guarantee you'll feel better if you do all 4 of these today!
