7 Things That Will Make A Bad Day Better

Nobody would disagree that life has crazy ups and downs. Some days it can be effortless to find the sunshine while others can be just "one of those days." We all know what that means: one of those days that is seems like you're swimming upstream. People get mean, coffee spills and the rain just won't seem to go away. A lot about life is out of our control, but our attitude is entirely up to us. So if you're having one of those days, don't fret! Your life won't change but your attitude definitely will if you try out these ways to make a bad day better:

1. Make lists

Write down the five best parts of the day

What you're thankful for

Who made your day better by being in it

If you made anyone's day better by being in it

2. Dogs

Stop and ask someone to pet their dog

Go to dog park

Puppy store to pet puppies

Buy a dog (extreme)

3. Exercise/stretch

Take a walk

Try to hula hoop

Challenge yourself

Try a yoga routine on YouTube

4. Learn something

Try to whistle

Look for a new joke

Try a new flavor of tea/ coffee/ ice cream

5. Make a plan

To bake something, for someone or for yourself

To call family you haven't spoken to in a while

To get together with your friends

6. Finish something

Not a Netflix episode/series

Do the dishes

Write a poem or journal entry

Transform an old shirt into something cool

7. Smile

For no reason

At strangers when you make eye contact

At yourself in the mirror

Because you can

At the end of the day we're all living and trying to live the best we can. So live and be happy while you're at it.

Have you ever found that one person in your life who you literally could not live without? You can talk to her about anything. She's the only person who will look you straight in the eyes and say, "You're stupid." You two can ride around or sit at your house for hours and always have something to talk about.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.
