1. Healthy Diet
A healthy diet is key, junk food and caffeine, etc make you feel dull and sluggish. The body takes more time to digest these and hence needs more energy tiring you out.

Exercise is essential getting the body to move helps release dopamine further and in turn, makes you get that surge of energy. Any form of exercise even as simple as walking or jogging helps you lift the mood immensely.
3. Journaling/Venting out your thoughts and feelings
The mind tends to focus on things that are not healthy and keeps on thinking and rethinking on past negativity. It is essential to help the mind relax and release out. Journaling out stored feelings of hurt and pain by writing down specific incidents that have hurt you helps the body vent harmoniously. This helps break the vicious cycle of thinking extra and helps obtain a neutral third-person perspective.
