Feel joy today by changing the way you think

We all go through our good days and bad days. A bad day is sometimes inevitable so cheer up and remember it happens to all of us. Even though you might not see the light at the end of the tunnel, a new day will come, and the sunshine will come back.

There are things that you can do to cheer yourself up when feeling under the weather.

  1. Listen to some cheerful music. Blast it as loud as you can and enjoy it. It will bring you back to life.
  2. Call or text someone, a good friend will remind you of how awesome you are!
  3. Go outside. Enjoy a walk, a jog, a hike, a bike ride, or whatever outdoor activity that makes you feel good. The sunshine will boost your energy and the fresh air will clear your head.
  4. Clean your space. Throw out anything that you don’t use anymore, organize your stuff and start fresh.
  5. Learn something new. It will keep your mind busy and occupied.
  6. Treat yourself. This is a good time to spoil yourself. Go shopping, bake a cake, watch a movie, go to your favorite restaurant, and focus on the present moment.
  7. Get off social media. Remember the stuff you see is not representative of the real world. They never show you what is going on behind the scenes.
  8. Listen to some stand-up comedy. Nothing like some humor to lighten things up.
  9. Dress nice. Sometimes we save our best clothes for the best occasions. Why not now?
  10. For every negative thought that pops into your mind, you must come up with five positive thoughts about yourself. No cheating!

Why do bad things always happen to me?
