10 Tips To Survive A Bad Day

We’ve all had bad days, whether it be triggered by something small like road rage or something bigger, here are some tips to turn your day around.

1. Listen to music

I personally like to listen to music that I can relate to when I’m in a bad mood or having a bad day, grab your IPod or phone and sing along . You could even dance around your room, the choice is yours.

2. Take a shower

I’ve found that taking a shower after a long day is very relaxing, sometimes I just let the water run down my back and put on my favorite music.

3. Take a walk

Walk around the block, bring your dog, walk with a friend. You could even talk it out with your friend on your walk.

4. Pet an animal

Everybody loves animals! Pet your dog, cat, guinea pig, any animal you have. Dogs love to cuddle and can sometimes even sense when you’re having a bad day. Cuddle with an animal.

5. Journal

Write it out, journaling is a great way to relive stress and get things off your chest.

6. Hug it out

Sometimes we just need a hug to get through our bad days, hug a friend, family member, anybody.

7. Eat

Eat your favorite food! Chocolate, pizza, whatever it is, you’ve had a bad day and you deserve your favorite food.

8. Go for a drive

When I’m having a bad day or when my friends are having bad days, we will pick each other up and just go for a drive. We talk it out and by the end of the drive, we both feel better.

9. Breathe

Practice some deep breathing, take a deep breath and tell yourself everything will be ok

10. Remind yourself, its only one bad day

Someone very close to me always told me when I was having a bad day that I could get through it, even the darkest days only have 24 hours. Tomorrow is a new day. You can and will get through this.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.
