MUSIC - putting on my ipod and dancing around the house always can make me happy. I love all kinds of music and will sing along with the best of them. This even seems to be improving Brian's mood LOL! He's laughing at me singing along with the ipod. Surely it isn't THAT bad???
EXERCISE - nothing make those endorphins raise like exercise. I've been doing the Insanity workouts with my workout buddies! The more I sweat, the better I feel
FAMILY/FRIENDS - being with my favorite people will raise my mood leaps and bounds. Having the kids over and taking care of Madelyn one day a week is helping. Going out with friends is also a great time! It's a nice break from the daily routine!!CUTE SOCKS - I got these adorable socks and am really enjoying them. Karen Neuburger Pure Comfort socks are enriched with Aloe vera and Vitamin E. These have made my dry heels much better and they hold up well in the wash. The aloe vera and vitamin E will last for 20 washings. I've washed mine several times and they are still leaving my feet soft, but not greasy! This would be a great stocking stuffer for Christmas! $8 retail value! Cute socks are a true mood lifter! SUNSHINE - it seems that Brian and I missed most of the summer. Stuck in the hospital and then indoors during the best part of the summer. I love the hot weather, going to the lake and just enjoy being outdoors. Swimming, walking or biking, anything outdoors is good to my mood! Brian ordered me the HDvision sunglasses. I really like them too! Perfect for being outside in the sun! I hope that we have a mild winter (we have heard a wet, cold winter is in store for us UGH!) and little snow. COOKING/BAKING - I LOVE to cook and bake. I have been enjoying some great cookbooks lately. I just got Alicia Silverstone's The Kind Diet and really like all the recipes I have made so far. Rustic Pasta was amazing! I can't wait to make the peanut butter cups. These are just a few of my favorite mood lifters. What do you do to get in a better mood? Be sure to visit Karen Neuburger!!!
