5 Ways To Make Yourself Feel Better When You Think You Look Bad

If you don't feel your best, at least you can look it.

5 Ways To Make Yourself Feel Better When You Think You Look Bad

A good philosophy to feeling better: pamper yourself. Usually, when I feel gross, the best way to get out of a funk is to make myself look the exact opposite of what I feel on the inside. These are just a few steps to take in order to look and feel your best.

1. Workout

This doesn't have to be super strenuous. It could be a 30 minute Youtube-guided yoga session or a workout on the elliptical. After sweating it out a little, you feel everything bad leaving your body and you feel more invigorated. It's just taking the first step of actually working out that is the hardest.

2. Take a shower

If you don't feel good, you can at least smell good. Taking a shower sort of renews you and makes you feel all ~fresh~.

3. Do a facemask

I'm pretty sure the label recommends doing a facemask like 2-3 times a WEEK. Who has time for that? Whether it's a sheet mask or one of those peel-off masks, when your skin feels hydrated and detoxed, you instantly perk up.

4. Put on a cute outfit and do a little makeup

When you look great, you feel great. You have more confidence and can take on anything.

5. Go do something!

Whether it's grabbing lunch with a friend or going to see the new museum you've been meaning to visit, this is the time. Get out and shake off the bad aura that surrounded you before. Put your mind into something else for a little while.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
