10 Ways to Feel Good Naturally!


It’s cold. It’s dark. It’s wet. The sun attempts to break through the grey sky but you scurry back beneath the covers until you realise – it’s a work day. You drag yourself out of bed to face the gloom, counting down the hours until you can return to your isolated hibernation. Friends call but going ‘out’ seems like a supreme effort and your slippers are calling you. You just can’t be bothered. You’ve dug yourself a nice, comfortable rut and you’re wallowing in it.

Cheer up, sounds like a case of the mid-winter blues. But don’t worry; we’ve got a few natural, feel good tips that will pep you up in no time!

Hormones are the key to an all-natural buzz and there are a few specific hormones you can target for a quick perk-me-up.

Simple, everyday activities can trigger a release or increase of these hormones in our brains, giving us a rush of good feelings. We’ve compiled 10 tips to help you feel good naturally.

The best part? Our fun factoids give you a scientifically validated excuse to Google cat videos, not to mention a reason to hug strangers (ok, maybe not strangers…). Oh, and SPOILER ALERT. Something to do with chocolate. Best. News. Ever.

Check out the complete list of tips in our nifty infographic!

The team behind comparethemarket.com.au have experience in insurance, comparison, customer service and digital. If this was a stuffy corporate monologue, we’d tell you that we’re a bunch of subject matter experts specialising in User Experience, Customer Insights & Online Strategies. But to be honest, it’s just as accurate (and a whole lot easier) to say that we’re a bunch of people who want to make your experience with online comparison better. We pride ourselves on the fact that we’re forward-thinking, that we share an entrepreneurial spirit, and the fact that we like to have a bit of a laugh too. We’re all a bit too addicted to chocolate, but no one’s perfect, really.
