35 Ways To Boost Your Mood Today

In the middle of February, if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, you are deep in the cold of winter. The holidays are over, and spring feels like a lifetime away. It’s cold up north and you’re working your way through the doldrums of winter. When the weather feels like this, it’s so easy to get deep in your feelings and down in your thoughts. Everyone goes through emotional ups and downs, but winter can sometimes feel the hardest.

So today in the journal, we want to bring a long list of potential mood boosters to your attention. Life doesn’t have to be completely different for it to feel good. You can still be in the deep dark middle of winter and find the smallest bit of light. That light can be just enough to get you to the next day and the next, until finally you’ve emerged into the bright sunshine of spring with more beautiful days ahead. This is not a comprehensive list of the only mood boosters by any stretch of the imagination. But we hope it’s enough encouragement to get your own list started. Perhaps it inspires you. Or maybe it just reminds you of the good things it can be easier to notice from day to day. Take what you need from this long list of natural ways to boost your mood!

1. Wake up and see the sunrise

There’s nothing more wonderful to us than slipping into your luxury silk robe, opening the shades and letting the first morning sunlight pour through the windows. Catching the sun first thing in the morning is a beautiful way to rise with Mother Earth. It sets the tone for the day, bringing a sense of deep calm and power to your intentions for the day. Let the Vitamin D boost your mood right from the break of day!

2. Watch something that makes you burst into uncontrollable laughter

Laughter is always the best medicine. If you need a little pick-me-up, turn on a comedy podcast or old sitcom that always makes you howl. Searching for laughter is an easy way to boost your mood and bring a little more levity into your day.

3. Feel the softness of your luxury silk robe against your skin

Your women’s silk robe is meant to be fully experienced, and that means paying attention to the way it feels against your skin. It’s 100% Mulberry Silk and luxuriously soft. Let it bring you extra comfort and joy every time you wear it, giving your skin a little hug and making you feel like you’re floating on a cloud.

4. Smell freshly cut flowers

Is there anything more wonderful than the smell of flowers? We love florals at KIM+ONO and have used nature as inspiration for every single one of our flower kimono robes.

5. The ritual of lighting your favorite candle

Let a little bit of light in for a beautiful spark in the dark.

Allow yourself to get swept away with the beautiful feeling of the breeze running through your hair.

33. That feeling of lightness after meditating

34. Trusting yourself

35. Feeling confident in your own skin

Another reason we made our men’s and women’s silk robes is so that each and every time you slip into them, you feel confident in your own skin, feel beautiful, and feel like a work of art. Because you deserve it.
