Do you use mood boosting activities on a regular basis to help you have a good mood? I do this often to help maintain my emotional wellness and I encourage you to do it too. Here is a list of my 25 favorite mood boosting activities.

  1. Smell essential oils- This can work very well. Citrus essential oils are especially effective for helping to boost your mood.
