Setting a goal and achieving it will give you a tremendous confidence boost. It can be anything you choose too! One great idea could be taking part in a 5-mile charity walk or jog, like Race For Life (http://www.raceforlife.org/).
Treat yourself to a pampering day
You can do this at home [http://www.prlog.org/10499088-models-direct-guide-new-year-new-you.html] so theres no need to feel concerned about high costs. Another alternative is to book in at your local college for some inexpensive beauty treatments.
Pay someone a compliment
Its so simple, but giving a compliment will make you and the recipient feel great. This is an instant mood-booster and it doesnt cost a thing. Give it a try and youll see what we mean!
Listen to music
Play your favourite piece of music, preferably loud, and you will instantly feel happier. For best effect dance to it in a Bridget Jones style until you feel the benefits!
Wear a favourite item, just for the sake of it
Do you tend to save your favourite things for that special occasion only to find that they have gone out of fashion by the time you wear them? Make yourself feel instantly special by wearing your favourite pair of shoes, item of jewellery or even lingerie to work or just around the house.
Smiling is the best way to rid yourself of negative emotions and the great news is that you dont have to be ecstatic for it to work. There is always something worthy of a little grin and if you can manage a smile your body will respond by producing endorphins. Knowing that you are exercising your facial muscles, therefore making your face glow and your skin become firmer should help too.
Book a class or activity that you always promised you would try
Its never too late! If you always fancied trying your hand at archery, or giving the tango a try, nows the time to go for it. Book just one session and go, with or without a friend you wont regret it.
Spend an evening with the girls
Spending time with friends always lifts your mood, and many of us neglect it at this time of year. If you cant afford a night out, invite a good friend or two to come over for a meal and a chick flick, or even a sleepover!
Write a list of things that you are grateful for. Feeling gratitude for the good things in your life is one of the best ways to decrease stress and anxiety, and there is always something to be thankful for. What are your top five?
Dont ask us why it works, it just does! Follow with a deep conditioning hair treatment and a big mug of hot chocolate (low-fat if you dont want to regain the calories you just burned off).
