Nobody likes those emotional valleys that creep up now and then. Try one of these 10 effective methods to clear the junk out of your mind and fill in with positivity and well being.

1. Outdoor Therapy

Connect with nature and yourself by moving out of your gloomy space. A natural, green surrounding has a soothing effect on the eyes and rejuvenates your senses, leading to a relaxed state of mind.

2. Clear The Clutter

The sight of scattered stray papers and unused objects in your room is enough to give you a burdensome feeling even when there is none. Keeping things clean and sorted can make you feel significantly lighter inside.

3. Treat Yourself

Start your day on a positive note by having some healthy snacks such as fruits, unsalted nuts or yogurt. Chocolate contains tryptophan that can help promote release of mood enhancing serotonin.

4. Rise and Shine

Light is known to stimulate brain chemicals that influence your mood. Researchers claim the morning sunlight to be the most beneficial source of light that nourishes your body and mind.
