Listening to upbeat music can actually improve your mood.
It's important not to overthink, "Am I happy yet?" while listening, and instead just allow yourself to enjoy the experience.
Laughter increases dopamine in our brains, which is a chemical that elevates mood.
The next time you're in a bad mood, try pulling up some Amy Schumer or an SNL digital short on YouTube.
Even mild exercise, about 40 percent of your max heart rate, can lift your mood. Do activities that match your mood instead of trying to force yourself to do something you're just not feeling.
Clutter is a reminder of things that should be getting done, but aren't, and can help fuel feelings of failure.
Just the illusion of order is enough to ease the mind. Put things into neater stacks and piles for an instant boost in mood.
When you stimulate the pressure receptors in the skin, you lower stress hormones. Touching others stimulates oxytocin, which also has positive effects on our mood.Rubbing your own forehead, hands, and neck, as self-massage has been shown to decrease heart rate and reduce the stress hormone cortisol in our systems.
Reflect on three things that are going well or three positive moments in your day, and even replay them in your mind.
Mentally revisiting these moments will help bring back the good mood and feelings they initially created.
There are actually some advantages to venting about a problem to a friend, and helping with your mood is one of them.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
