1) Eat some chocolate. Right now. 

2) Call the person you love most in this world and say, "I feel like sh*t today.Tell me the best joke you know." 

3) Put on the very first episode of your favourite TV series.


4) Make (and drink!) a cup of tea. There are tons that can bust your bad mood. 


5) Make a list of everything you're excited to do in the next 6 months. 

6) Cook/bake something you've been craving. 

7) Write down 10 things you love about yourself and would never change. 

8) Watch a cartoon you loved as a kid.

9) Call your freaking mom. (Moms cure everything)

10) Light some candles and get in the bath. 

11) Dance. 


12) Chew gum for exactly 19 minutes. Seriously. 

13) Have a massive vent and then say these words: "F*ck it."
