In our busy modern lives, keeping your spirits bucked up can be a huge challenge, even on a good day. The pressures and strains of our schedules can quickly get on top of us, and we start to feel flat and listless. We get it, you’re not alone. If you’re feeling a bit beaten down, read on for four quick-fix methods that will have you feeling back on top in next to no time.

1. Rest, rest and more rest

Sometimes it’s easier said than done (especially as feeling blue and struggling to sleep tend to go hand in hand) but you just won’t get back on top if you’re not banking enough Zs every night. Aim for 7-8 hours and if you’re struggling to nod off, try listening to relaxing music or download some sleep hypnosis sessions to try and lull your mind into a more relaxed state.
