Okay the weather hasn’t been great and as you can see I’m actually walking in a flooded road in our park. But a ray of sunshine came through and I ran out to catch a bit of vitamin D for myself and my favorite Gucci bag. Nature is almost fool-proof when it comes to boosting your mood and self-esteem. And amazingly, it only takes five minutes!
According to one survey, regardless of what they were doing or where they were, all people saw improvements in self-esteem and mood after exercising outdoors.
People saw the greatest self-esteem changes while doing light-intensity exercise and after being outside for just five minutes. The biggest mood changes occurred after light and vigorous workouts, also after just five minutes.
The most uplifting places to exercise was around water and while all age groups saw mood and self-esteem boosts, people between the ages of 30 and 50 experienced the greatest lift.
So I recommend that all you lovely ladies enjoy a trip outside to enjoy the green, regardless of rain or mud… It’s a mood booster and a self-esteem pick me up! Another great mood boster is shoe shopping which you will need after all the rain and mud has ruined your other shoes!
What I’m wearing: Bag Gucci; Jacket with leather sleeves Zara; Pants Banana Republic; Shirt TK Maxx; Earrings Chanel; Bracelet Nakamol; Oh and the shoes in mud; Kurt Geiger, that soon will be replaced with another mood boosting pair! :)
