How To Deal When Everything Sucks


We get it. Life sucks. You don’t want to deal with it. Things are hard. You don’t know what to do. These are all things we’ve dealt with too. Here’s how we got out of it, using the power of positivity (well, most of the time…):

Smile Until You Really Feel It

Did you know it takes significantly more muscles to frown than it does to smile? It’s good for you to smile! There’s also the saying that goes “fake it ’til you make it” and it definitely applies to happiness–what better way to make yourself happy than to smile?

Listen To An Upbeat Playlist

Let the psychology behind music lift your spirits! Always have a playlist at the ready full of your favorite tunes you can sing along to and…

Dance It Out

Get those endorphins flowing! In the words of Elle Woods, “Exercise gives you endorphins and endorphins make you happy.” And happy people don’t just believe everything sucks. They just don’t.

Write It Down

Sometimes, you just need to get it all out. Once you do, you’re able to think more clearly and process things independently. You don’t have to be the best writer in the world–you just have to know how you feel.

Cry (We Won’t Judge)

Okay, so sometimes the power of positivity doesn’t fix everything. We understand. It’s okay to have yourself a good cry. Just make sure it doesn’t last too long and go back to following our other tips, alright? We believe in you. It’s going to be alright.
