10 Things To Do When You're Feeling Blue

I think we've all been told to "turn that frown upside down" at some stage of our lives. But some days it can be really tough and inevitable. Everyone gets a "down day" every now and then. So I decided to share some of my pick me ups. These are just a few things I like to do to make me feel better. 

1. Listen to some very loud cheesy feel-good music, mr brightside by the killers is a great tune for this occasion. There are so many great feel good playlists on spotify. 

2. Cuddle your pet. I am a firm believer in feeling better after hudding your puppy. My dog will always know when I am feeling down, he will act all clingy and cuddly. Its great. 

3. Make yourself a hot drink. 

4. Buy some makeup! This one probably isnt the cheapest remedy for bad days, but who doesnt love buying new makeup?! Say sorry in advance to your bank account. Opps! You can see my most recent makeup purchases here.

5. Binge watch your favourite tv show on netflix. My show of choice will always be Dexter. I only have 4 more episodes left and I am going to be lost without it. I may need to re-watch it over and over again. LOL! Check out my post on my top netflix picks here. 

6. Read some blogs. My mood can instantly change when I read some good blog post. Click here to see my top 10 blogs to follow. I love reading Corries blog when I'm feeling down. There is something really soothing and comforting about her and I was actually inspired to make this post after reading  her post all about things to do when you feel rubbish.

7. Bake. This is something I use to do a lot when I was feeling blue. Baking is a great distraction because you need to concentrate or you'll end up burning the cake! And bonus, once you're done you can treat yourself to a cupcake. Yum! Cake makes everything better!

8. Talk to a loved one. I will always go to my mum when I'm feeling down. Its so nice to be able to talk to someone who cares deeply about you. A good old rant will always make you feel better. Sorry Mum. 

9. Exercise. Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. I know this is such a bleurgh tip and lets be honest, sometimes working out is the last thing you want to be doing. But I find that I feel like a different person after only 10 minutes of yoga. 

10. Tidy up. This is something I really love to do because I am a clean-freak! But when I need an instant pick me up I just like to clean up a bit around the house because there's nothing worse than being surrounded by a mess. 

What is your favourite thing to do when you feel down? 

Love, Becca x
