Nothing is more cheerful than watching James Corden lip syncing Estelle's Free through the streets of London. I love how he keeps his face straight and mimes like rock star. The portrayal of the streets of London is spot on. Being a Londoner myself, I know it's hard to keep a smiley face on such dreary, glum days when everything seems to go wrong.
When your umbrella flies away in another direction and hits someone walking behind you and then you slip onto the concrete floor due to so called rain 'flooding', it seems like nothing in the world can help to make the situation better. But sometimes, you just have to free the joy and let it be and even the most gloomy days can become bearable. Do whatever makes you happy and help you turn the day around, regardless of the weather.
Take a walk in the part be it rain or shine. Spend your lunch hour listening to your favourite tunes and singing out loud regardless of what onlookers think. Believe it or not, positive energy is infectious and people around you need a little bit of it passed on as well. I just cannot believe how heavily and frequently it poured in London in the last two weeks, let alone the worst weather and wind conditions in the rest of the UK.
When home stuck in such atrocious weather, I like to make myself a hot cup of tea, dig out some chocolate and tune into House of Cards on Netflix. Or simply get into the mood for a much needed weight lifting session at home whilst listening to Capital FM. Both of these things cheer me up instantly and put me into a good mood regardless of the cold and wet weather or whatever unpleasant that's happened during the day. What's important is that you have to find out what helps you free the joy and keep doing it religiously until it lifts your spirit. What's it that free's the joy for you?
