The official start to summer is right around the corner, and with warmer weather comes more time outside — more time outside often means a boost in mood, and some of us even feel more productive when we get a daily dose of the sunshine vitamin.
We’re sharing five additional ways to help boost mood and productivity so we all can go into summer feeling a bit more upbeat.
Do These 5 Things Daily to Boost Mood & Productivity
#1 Start With a Simple Morning Ritual
A morning ritual can be a game-changer in starting your day off on the right foot. Try implementing some sort of routine like getting up and doing a quick stretch and a few minutes of meditation or listening to a motivating podcast while sipping your tea.
You could even look at your daily to-do list and organize the tasks you want to cross off your list first.
#2 Take Five Daily
Each day, take five minutes to either meditate or practice some deep breathing. This can be a great tool when you are feeling tense or when you need to muster up some energy. Start with just five minutes per day and work your way up from there.
#3 Get Outside
Getting outside in the fresh air daily does the mind and body good! Try getting outside for lunch or going for a brisk walk before your busy day gets started. Chances are, you’ll feel much better when you have to return to your daily to-dos.
#4 Try Adaptogens

#5 Move Daily
Getting the body moving is a great way to feel that post-workout endorphin rush, leaving us with a better mood. Try doing some form of movement daily, even if it's just a quick walk or an evening yoga routine!
It’s been a stressful spring, especially with most of us being stuck inside more than usual. So, let’s all go into summer feeling our best with a better mood and improved productivity!
