Now that the holidays have come to an end, a cloud can appear over your head since all the holiday laughter and cheer has come to an end. Don’t let the end of one holiday season ruin the brand-new year! Instead, turn that frown upside down, and start each day of 2017 off in a better mood!

Wear Your Smile Proud

Sure, not every day is going to be a wonderful day. But you can live each day to the fullest by starting your day off right—in a good mood!

Give yourself the gift of energy every day by beginning your morning with the right foods, including fruits and vegetables. Studies have shown that people who consume these foods in the morning soon experience happiness, which can last throughout the day. So start putting strawberries in a smoothie or spinach and mushrooms in an omelet, and have a happy day!

You might also want to bring a smoothie or omelet to someone else while you’re at it. Doing something for someone else can help you feel better and more happy. As a result, you won’t only be improving your mood, you will also be bettering the mood of someone else. It’s a win-win.

Finally, put on that “happy” music and dance. Not only will the music help to reduce any anxiety you might be feeling, the sweat sessions will also help to lower your stress levels, as well as increase positive endorphins. You may be tired after your workout, but you will be feeling better and have a smile still on your face at the end of the day!
