5 litte ways to cheer yourself up | by Georgia Nicolaou

Today's post is a Guest Post written by Georgia, from Georgia Nicolaou Blog. I think we both have very similar blogging styles, so when we started talking about her doing a possible guest post for my blog, I knew it was going to go great and let me tell you, I love her post! And I'm sure you will too! This has been in my list of posts ideas for a while so it's definitely something you would see on my blog. So I'm going to stop writing now and let you enjoy this lovely post that Georgia wrote for you 

Hello everyone, I am Georgia and I run the blog georgianicolaou.co.uk. Here I blog about lifestyle, fashion and beauty. Outside of my blog, I love reading, working out, eating, bullet journaling and eating. I hope you enjoy today's post on LoveFromBe

With dissertation and exam deadlines looming, all of us students tend to be very down in the dumps and overly stressed lately. Even if you are not a student, we all have horrible, bad days where we just want to curl into a ball and sleep. Instead of doing that I put together a small little list that will help you cheer yourself up so you can get back to being the happy bunny that you are.

1) Watch your Favourite Movie: movies cheer me up to no extent. My favourite movie to watch when I am down is 21 and 22 Jump Street as they are so hilarious. I also am a huge fan of the Bourne trilogy and mostly every Disney movie, especially Cinderella. Watching a movie will get your mind off of everything and cheer you up in no time.

2) Run/ Work your Heart Out: If you are an active bunny an endorphin release is guaranteed to cheer you up. Also, whilst working out you somehow seem to process your whole life and see everything in a different perspective that you didn't see before; it's like it's own therapy.

3) Pamper yourself, girl: you go have that Lush bath, paint your nails and eat all the chocolate your heart desires; you deserve it. You will also thank yourself for it because it will make you so much happier and relaxed.

4) Retail Therapy is the best Therapy: buy all the things your heart desires (well, as much as your bank balance allows you to.)

5) Be a Sleeping Beauty: read your favourite book, light some candles and lay in bed so you can be super relaxed. Have an early night (make sure to blow your candles out) and when you wake up you will be as fresh as a daisy and as happy as a clam (I think that's how the saying goes.)

I hope this post has given you some ideas on how to cheer yourself up when life is getting a bit too much to handle. If you do have any more suggestions to add, make sure to mention them below as I'd love to see some more ideas.

  1. Lovely post by Georgia! I love watching fun movies or just baking something to cheer myself up a bit when it's needed. And I love your 4th tip, haha. Shopping heals everything (well maybe not your bank account) :)

    1. "Whoever said that money doesn't buy happiness didn't know where to shop."

    2. Than you, Leta! Lol I love coming up with catchy headings

  2. Nice to read another post by Georgia today, the working out tip is so true I used to be so much happier when I worked out and I enjoyed my life more, but even knowing this I still can not find the motivation to get back in to it!

    1. Yes! I'm always happy for some reason after ice skating!!

    2. Thank you, meme. Working out makes me feel so great, I need to keep at it!

  3. Such a lovely post! :) Whenever I'm feeling a bit down number 5 definitely works best to cheer me up - there's nothing better than an evening spent reading a good book & then falling asleep feeling all relaxed :) x

  4. Fantastic read. I always love retail therapy - only the online version and then I make haste in clicking away from the site so not to over spend. Lol. Totally love the pampering too.

    Nothing says nothing like taking time to pamper yourself. Lovely post, thanks Georgia!

    Oh Chel

    1. Haha I do that too! I also force myself to stop scrolling when I hit a certain amount :)

      Thank you x

  5. Thanks for the post Georgia! Oddly enough, cleaning makes me happier! I definitely put on a "feel-good" movie while I'm doing it, but it makes me feel like everything is refreshed and renewed <3

    1. I understand what you mean about cleaning as it can also be really satisfying aha.

      Thank you, Clarissa X

  6. A hot bubble bath and taking time out to just 'chill' helps to cheer me up :) spending time with loved ones or playing with my furball (cat) usually helps too.

    1. Yes, my cat definitely cheers me up,too! Well, when her claws are away xx

  7. Retail therapy is my go-to during tough times!


  8. Totally good ideas but I would have added comfort food to the list because that's such a great go-to! :)

  10. I love this. These are all definitely things that I do whenever I am feeling down. A bubble bath is a really healing experience, and shopping is always the answer to everything, haha.
