Play dress up! Put on fun makeup, hair pieces, shoes and accessories! It sounds silly, but remember all the fun you had as a child when you played dress up? Just because you’re older doesn’t mean you can’t be silly :)
Eat Chinese food late at night. With chopsticks :)
Breathe! It seems so simple but take a moment during the day to just focus on your breathing.
Take a walk through the local park.
Appreciate all the good in your life! Things that are bad weigh us down and we start to focus too much on them. Think about the good and joy you have
Make a list and do everything on it. I love crossing things off my to do list. Also, I just found Teux Deux. Perfect :)
Lay on your bed and listen to The Beatles for a least half an hour.
Make a blanket fort and read your favorite book :)
Go the library and marvel at the beauty of it all.
Watch America the Beautiful and know that you are beautiful, whether you are a size 4 or a size 12. You are lovely and wonderful just the way you are <3
I’ve been sad lately. Well, not as sad I was this past semester, but there are moments where I just get sad. I mean, yes, I got hit by a car, had terrible and now I’m newly single, so being sad is just something that’s going happen, right? Well, yes, but I’m so sick of it! Being happy and joyous is just something that’s always been me, and I’ve lost it somewhere! In an effort to get it back, I’m going to do things to make me not sad anymore. So I’m introducing….
Finding things that are happy in my life will make me happier and a better person. And really, that’s what we all want to do, is be better. Each week, I’ll think and find things to make me happy. Everyday, I’ll do at least one thing to be happy. If you make the effort to be happy, then it’ll just be a part of your daily life by itself! And even if you are generally happy, finding more ways to be happy is always a good thing :)
And now, my ways of how to be less sad this next week!
taking a bubble bath. Or a long hot shower. Shave your legs! Let yourself relax :)
wear something you made (like this hat I made over the weekend!)
get out of the house! sometimes it’s just best to go somewhere and explore!
listen to Edith Piaf. old French music always makes me happy
or you can listen and watch She & Him’s new music video :)
write down ten things you love about yourself
drink lots of water
try your very hardest to not to be judgmental.
dress up for no reason at all
stop doing what makes you sad! this may be easier for some than others, but if, for example, you just broke up with your significant other and you keep checking their facebook profile, stop it. It’s not healthy!
Go find your happy :)
