The weather is bad, the job is stressful and somehow you’re just not in a good mood. Does that sound like your mood? Then we have some practical tips for you on how you are guaranteed to lift your spirits – right away. We present you with six ingeniously simple sports that you can use to leave everyday life behind and that are guaranteed to get you out of your slump.
Bounce happily on your home trampoline. Jumping fitness is a mega trend and not only demands your stamina, but also works with constant tensing and relaxing of the muscles. Your sense of balance will also be encouraged. Trampoline jumping really puts you in a good mood as carefree as it used to be.
Jumping rope will really get your circulation going – and it’s a lot of fun. You don’t need much space for this exercise and the “sports equipment” also fits easily into any bag. So there are no excuses! Arms, shoulders, legs, coordination and endurance: jumping rope is a great all-rounder that challenges you and really gets you going.
Mindful movements paired with conscious breathing: Yoga can be a real soul caress. And even if it gets exhausting in postures like Pincha Mayurasana (forearm stand) or Hanumanasana (splits) – the feeling when you are out of the asana is simply incredible. Of course, the postures don’t have to be that demanding. A relaxed yoga flow also unfolds its effect and can be a real good mood booster. Tip: Hold each pose for 10-15 breaths, step out slowly, and then tap into a neutral pose for a moment.
Hula hoop and bad mood are two things that don’t go together. We guarantee: As soon as the hoop has made the first laps around your hips (or your arms, legs or neck), you will be beaming with joy. This workout not only puts you in a good mood, but also trains your abdominal muscles. If a simple hoop like you used to have in kindergarten isn’t enough for you, try a hoop with weights. Challenge accepted!
It’s like Tayler Swift sings it: SHAKE IT OFF! And it’s like nobody’s watching. When you dance, you improve your stamina, promote your coordination and strengthen your body awareness. If you regularly really abdance, you also regularly really relax. And that not only has a positive effect on body and mind, but also instantly puts you in a good mood.
We know that jogging is not easy for many people – the bastard is just too big, the weather is usually too bad and the park is too far away. But: If you go jogging regularly, you not only do something good for your endurance, you also spoil your body with lots of fresh air and vitamin D. And it doesn’t have to be the marathon, a comfortable 4 kilometers is enough to to lift your spirits. Bet you’ll be super proud of yourself after the run?
