Rainbows and Puppies
A Pinterest High
Out of the blue the other day, my 14-year-old told me that she was working on her “serotonin boosters.” I’ve seen the research, and generally speaking, the best ways to boost serotonin, one of our body’s feel-good hormones, are eating well, getting out in the sun, taking vitamin D, exercising, and managing stress. But, she was talking about Pinterest. 🤷🏻♀️
Specifically, she was curating mood-boosting image boards of puppies and rainbows and neon-hued beach cottages.
As we’ve said so often here and on The Uplifters Podcast, our environments - the people, places, and things we surround ourselves with have a profound impact on our mindset and wellbeing.
It’s been a week with some big worries and sadness around here, so I decided to try out my girlie’s strategy and sat down with her to look at pretty pictures. Now maybe it was because she’s a vibrant light, or maybe it was the puppies, but I definitely felt better.
So, today, if you’re feeling a cloud hanging over you or life is nipping at your heels, maybe this can be your reminder to look for some rainbows and puppies. 🌈
