We all have those days

8 Things To Try When You Need Cheering Up

Like most people, I have my good days and my bad days. Usually these are in the extreme sense to the point where people point it out and comment and think it is their place to have an opinion as to how my day is going but that's besides the point. I have dealt with my fair share of really tough days but also just some "blah" days. If you're like me and doing things helps keep your mind off the blah, here are some suggestions that I use to make my days a little brighter.

Watch Netflix:

Whether it be starting a new show or watching an old nostalgic movie, sometimes it is best to just let your brain take a break from life.


Find what you love! or at least tolerate... For some people its running, lifting, or playing a sport. Others love yoga, zumba, spinning, or taking a group class. Find what you like and get that sweat on!

Eat your favorite food:

Maybe you make it or maybe you order it, but sometimes all a person needs is some good old fashioned comfort food.

Watch funny videos:

I have a folder bookmarked of funny videos to watch when I need some cheering up.

Listen to some good music:

Maybe sad or nostalgic works for you, or maybe its your favorite song or just one you haven't heard for a while.

Take a nap:

Sometimes all you need are some zzz's

Go shopping

You don't even have to buy anything. Sometimes just walking through the aisles is therapeutic and can provide inspiration for new outfits! But treating yourself can be just as helpful :)

Do a craft project

Put on some good music and go to town. Maybe you want to try something new or just stick with the tried and true.

Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

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.

One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
