Advertisement

Do you got to cheer yourself up? we tend to all want a small amount of cheering up from time to time – and it’s straightforward to fall back on the old’ standbys of wine and Netflix. will|we will|we can} do better! This post can help!

101 ways that TO CHEER YOURSELF UP

1. HAVE A pants PARTY

In bed. Just you, one thing (or someone) to snuggle, a laptop, notebook or sketchpad, some rad music, an honest film, and a hot cup of chocolate. It’s the right remedy for dreary weather or off plans.

2. SUSHI

Buy one in every of those “make your own sushi” kits and learn to roll your own very little roundels of heaven. Once you get smart at the standard Western “chicken teriyaki”, experiment with cracked flavors. My favorite dish is avocado, cheese, and pineapple. No joke.

Eat your dish sitting on the ground looking at Kung Fu, Japanese horror, or an honest ole-fashioned anime tentacle scene.

3. SEND POSTCARDS

Buy a packet of 10 postcards and send a note to your friends – even those you see a day. Tell them however amazing you’re thinking that they’re, and the way a lot of you like hanging out with them. Or, if you wish to be less sappy, simply quote some Manowar lyrics and tell them they smell.

4. SHARE THE COOKIE WUV

You are progressing to a gig at the native bar. Bake a batch of cookies and produce them on to share. you have got currently created, fifty new friends.

5. POETRY

Find poems you prefer and drop them on your wall or write them in your diary. whenever I browse words fitted along like Associate in Nursing tortuous puzzle, I desire the total world is magic. I love the work of Catullus and Henry William Wordsworth Longfellow and Richard Brautigan and Dean Koontz. Even recent Aleister Crowley created outstanding imagination.

6. DRESS UP

Create outfits of ridiculous garments and accessories to try and do mundane tasks. Walk the dog in your bondage pants and Pantera shirt, vacuum the house during a tutu and high heels, obtain milk at the shop in nothing however a raincoat. (I’ll allow you to invent your definition of “ridiculous”).

7. build MAGIC EVERYDAY

Learn an illusion – it may well be one thing an easy as a trick or a sleight-of-hand. Practice till you’re expert, and delight your friends next time you see them. Don’t reveal your secret.

You should expertise happiness a day. you do not need to ‘earn’ it.

8. STAR-I-FY YOUR LIFE

Buy a packet of glow-in-the-dark adhesive stars (you apprehend the ones). Sneak into a friends house whereas they’re away, and adorn the ceiling of their space. They most likely won’t notice until they shut down their light-weight.

9. LAUGH

Watch a videodisk of 1 of your favorite stand-up comedians. If you don’t have a favorite slapstick comedian, I counsel you to get one! Here be my favorites: Dylan Moran, Ed Bryne, Eddie zed, Flight of the Conchords.

10. THE ROYAL bedroom

Make a cover and coronet for your bed. attend the material store and select luxurious materials – material and brocade and lace and material – in your favorite colors. Gather them on the ceiling and tie them to the corners of your bed. you’ll be able to attach curtain rods to the ceiling to form a dramatic cover. If you have got any leftover cloth, build several easy pillows to match. you’re currently an aristocrat.

11. build A PAPER HAT

Wear a paper hat. You don’t need to stick with the straightforward boat-shape. Why not style a paper chapeau, cap or high hat? I have a mini top hat with a flower I created entirely from Braille paper, that I do wear out infrequently.

12. HEALING STORES

Go to one in every of those hippy retailers and obtain yourself one thing – a homeopath treatment or some incense or a dream catcher or a reiki massage or no matter they’re got on supply. Hell, what have you ever have to be compelled to lose?

13. bask in BATHTIME

Run yourself a shower. Gather along all of your exquisite lavatory pampering treatments – all the luscious soaps and decadent shower gels you haven’t opened as a result of they’re “special” and you don’t wish to use them up. Open all of them. Use all of them.

Take the phone off the hook, place up a do-not-disturb sign, pour yourself a glass of wine or mead, placed on some quiet music, and skim a book, or stare at the ceiling.

14. “GET far from IT ALL”

I’ve ne’er been Associate in Nursing advocate for this methodology of handling a problem, as a result of you’re guaranteed to notice the problem watching for you once you come back from your sojourn. however, typically, you only want a prospect from the planet. If you recognize you wish to “get away” for several days, very depart.

Skip town, and don’t take your telephone. Go bush. Pack your tent and billy and notice a corner of the geographical area uninhabited with human life. Relish the stillness of a world untouched by urban living. within the clarity of contemporary air, all of your confusing thoughts typically become crystal clear.

15. FLY A KITE

I always remember the fun of a kite soaring through the sky, tugging at the string during a desperate plan to be free. Some retailers rent kites – an acquaintance and that I rented one from a store on the Gold Coast once, however you’d need to google your space to search out wherever they’re. Better yet, build your kite.

16. ADD TRIM

Find one in every of those treasure-trove cloths and trimming retailers with many bits of recent lace and rooms of buttons and bins of cloth offcuts. Set yourself a budget – say, $15, and notice a mad ensemble of things. Take them home and adorn a hat, headband, bag, jewelry or bag.

17. time of day SNACKAGE

Invite somebody over for a time of day snack – somebody WHO causes you to laugh therefore onerous your abdomen hurts. Eat nachos from the plate along and giggle. Last night, an acquaintance and that I stayed up late looking at recent favorites from our videodisk assortment and dessert apple and rhubarb crumble.

18. AMP UP THE attractive

Wear a garter belt (‘garters’ if you’re American) with stockings. All-day, every day. notwithstanding you’re a bloke.

19. WEAR BELLS

Wear bells around your ankles. you’ll be able to obtain ankle joint bells at medieval markets. I like them, though you’ll be able to ne’er go on behind somebody to surprise them.
