5 Ways To Get Yourself Off Rock Bottom

5 Ways To Get Yourself Off Rock Bottom

Think you've hit rock bottom? Here is a rope and an axe–get to climbing.

1. Look at art

Anytime you're down in the dumps and you can't see the good in the world, look for art. There is no better way to see the expression of artists than to experience their art. All the beauty and the depth in art is more than enough to help you see the good in the world.

2. Listen to music

I know what it's like–getting so down and thinking that nobody will ever understand. Guess what will understand, though? Music. There will always be a song that you can relate to. Even if the song's meaning isn't exactly what you're going through, you can still relate. It will still help.

3. Watch movies

Watching a movie is always a great way to escape for about two hours. While watching a movie, all your worries just tend to melt away. Who knows, you may even stumble upon a movie that can help you see the brighter side of the day.

4. Read all the books

My favorite way to escape my crappy day, bad mood, or slump of depression is to read a book. Put a jar filled with pieces of paper of all the books you have by your bed, your nightstand, your desk, or anywhere. Anytime you're down in the dumps, draw a book from the jar. Read the book. Read the whole book. You'll be transported to a whole new world.

5. Write your feelings away

The best way to get any built-up anger out of your system is to write about it. I always have a journal with me, so anytime I feel low and like nothing can go right, I can write about it. I fill that journal with any negative thoughts that are filling my head.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
