1. Get outside for a walk even if the weather isn’t great. The fresh air is invigorating and the natural vitamin D from the sunlight (even if it’s filtered by clouds) does wonders to improve your mood.

2. Create a daily schedule for yourself and stick to it. A schedule will help you form the habit of getting things done regardless of the weather. Your improved productivity will inspire you to keep doing more, keeping you moving forward.

3. Exercise regularly and eat foods that support you. Explore the various fruits and vegetables in season where you live and note how they make your body feel. Now might also be a good time to begin or mix up your exercise routine. Give that new gym class a try or get a few sessions with a personal trainer to help you ward off workout boredom. When your body is running in all cylinders, your mind is more likely to follow suit.

4. Constant isolation is bound to put you in a negative head-space after a while, so be sure to get together with friends and family on a regular basis. Interaction and connection are amazing for promoting a good mood. Try new activities when you have the opportunity to do so, and keep regular meet-ups on your schedule.
