Taking a shower with some relaxing music on or running a bath and lighting scented candles can instantly change your mood. The warm water and fresh afterward feeling always enhances the feeling of drowsy loss of energy and helps get you relaxed and less iffy.
2. Cook your favorite meal:

4. Pick up a book, and read:
Get off social media, your phone and laptop. Close them now. Actually of course wait till you finish this article...and then pick up a book. Routines can get you bored and sad, make yourself a cup of tea and read something inspiring.
5. Get up, move and achieve

Achieving something, even if it's within your 4 walls, gives you a sense that you're stronger physically and emotionally! And the sense of achievement and change is a good break of routine.
