Maybe your dreams are gathering dust while you make ends meet. Or maybe your love life’s in a rut. It’s easy to feel like these temporary things define your life. But they don’t. Feeling down? Consider these few tips here when you’re having a bad day.

By the way, life doesn’t give you anything you cant handle. The mind ultimately has problems when it closes up and centers in around itself. Conversely, it transcends problems when it opens up and expands its awareness to the whole world or reality in its entirety.

1. Listen to a happy song and sing along.

Studies have shown that listening to music you like can alter your mood and even alleviate depression.

2. Watch a funny YouTube video.

A recent research showed that participants who listened to an upbeat piece of music and watched a funny YouTube video were more productive and better able to solve problems than groups who listened to depressing music and video clips.

3. Give and get a hug.

When you’re feeling a little wonky, reach out to your partner, a close friend, or a family member and share a quick embrace.

4. Do some light bodyweight exercises.

Getting up and moving your body will help stimulate blood flow and the release of endorphins, the well-known “feel good” hormone. A simple routine of light squats, push-ups, and easy stretches should stimulate happy hormone production, increase blood flow, and boost your mood.

5. Get off the computer. Stop checking email. Turn off social media notifications.

Many studies have shown that checking social media can actually trigger depression because we often compare ourselves to our peers, creating feelings of inadequacy and doubt.

Keep in mind that most people are always going to put their best foot forward, so don’t compare your insides to somebody else’s outsides.

Bottom Line

So the next time you’re having a bad day and nothing seems to be going right, don’t worry about future you. This is all temporary… the 10 tips Infographic below should help you tremendously. Good luck!
