quick mood boosters

1. drink a glass of warm water

2. go out for a walk. find a lake or a river to be around. or walk up a little hill

3. write down a list of things you are grateful for. things you are glad happened to you. people you are glad to have in your life. experiences you are glad to have been through, regardless of the outcome

4. rant to someone. anything that is on your mind

5. if you can't find someone to rant, write it down in a journal. or type it on your notes

6. meditate. just keep sitting there until you feel more calm. it's gonna be tough as shit. but if you can sit it through, you will feel better

7. go for a jog. sweat it out. you feel a little less like shit when you're too busy trying to catch your breath

8. go to sleep earlier. even if you're not tired. especially if you're not tired. just close your eyes and lie down. you don't have to pressure yourself to fall asleep

9. lie down and close your eyes. listen to some beats. or an album you really like

10. tidy your room. throw away things you don't need. wipe things. vacuum the floor

11. take a walk and listen to a podcast

12. pets. pets make you feel better

13. hit up a friend and go to their house and watch tv 

14. catch the sunset. just. look at the sky, man

15. drive to a big supermarket and walk around. buy a kitkat or something

16. read a book from the start to the end (stop checking your phone)

17. write a letter to someone. or a post card

18. hugs. hugs make everything better 

19. take deep breaths. lots of them

20. put away your phone. stay away from screens for awhile. imagine it's 1995. what did we used to do in our free time?

    When something happen to me I used to just write it down, or more exactly typing in my PC, I write a journal like I talk to myself in the future about what happen today, what shit come to me, and why I feel overwhelm with it
    Somehow writing like this could make me feel like talking to another person, and more importantly I became more aware of what I felt, was it sad, was it anger, was it envy, was it happy, or was it something else

    When I feel like shit I first focus on things that I can do- that make me a little happy but it’s a bit productive.
    If I’m too burnt out, I write it down sometimes.
    If that doesn’t work and I feel like crap I go to my roof and either play music and dance around or just walk around looking at what is on my street.
    But I try my best to just- admit its okay to feel funked. I can’t be a productive beast all the time I have to try slow down and enjoy what I can do, or what the world has to offer.
    It’s easier said than done to be optimistic but I try take advice from this YouTube called @unjadedjade who reminds me that there is some form of magic hidden somewhere. If I can be grateful for one thing- whether its the walk you could go on or a yummy treat or even just being honest. That’s the best I can do
    The world is fucked so we must try our best to see some magic right?
