Little Pick Me Ups

The snowdrops are out, and it feels like spring is just around the corner. Well, it would apart from the freezing temperatures. It is nice to see that the nights are getting lighter at least, but with it still, a way off until anyone can enjoy the beer garden in relative comfort, there is a good chance you are still needing a little treat now and then to help keep your spirits up.

This piece is going to take a look at a couple of ideas that will instantly help you feel a bit better and ready to take on the world again.

A Little Craft Kit 

Trying something new is one of the best ways to get yourself out of your head and give yourself some time to be creative.

If you love crafts, you probably don’t need to be told twice to get a little craft kit of something that you have not tried before, but if it is not the type of thing you usually do, it could be worth exploring!

You do not have to be good at art to enjoy it, and giving yourself a new experience can help shift your perspective to something a little more positive. 

A Piece of Jewelry

Accessories can make the world of difference to how someone feels and looks in their outfit. It can be easy to feel less than confident and more on the side of drab if you are wearing your sweats, but jewelry can elevate even the most basic of outfits and turn them into something stylish.

If you are willing and able to splash out on a high quality piece, then you cannot beat a pair of 14k gold earrings, especially if they are hoops. These are timeless, and will complement pretty much anything you can think of wearing.

New Makeup

Buying makeup items to help you feel more put together does not have to be expensive, and even the smallest changes can make a difference.

Trying a lipstick color you have never tried, painting your nails a bright and engaging color, or trying a new eyeshadow look can put a spring in your step for little cost and time.

This is a great way to treat yourself if you want to get more into a “fake it until you make it” mindset, which can often be the pick-me-up that is needed to keep moving forward.

However, if makeup is not your thing, focus on something that usually gets you into more of a positive mind frame. Perhaps it is having freshly washed hair or putting on a fun outfit that you would not usually wear. 

Your Favorite Food 

It is not often that a decent portion of your favorite food would not make you feel a little better, so it is usually worth giving it a go. If you are tight on funds and you love takeout, why not try to recreate something yourself? Cooking can be therapeutic and give you a sense of accomplishment.
