What works

'What works' is simply a list of evidence-based activities proven to enhance mood.

It is easy to underestimate the cathartic power of simple everyday activities.  However, these things can stimulate the brain to produce vital 'feel-good' chemicals called endorphins.  You can start making a difference to your mood immediately.   Take a look at 'What works' and see what will work for you.

You will see a list of mood-enhancing activities along with the evidence base for how each activity can affect mood.  You will also be able to explore suggestions of how to get started.  Try one or more of the suggested activities and start to notice what changes for you.
