      Dandelions are always beautiful. Pay attention to the contrast with blues and whites in this photo. It really brings a smile to my face! I hope it does the same for you.

        The greenery in this photo can be a great energy booster. Green is a great motivational booster as well. It makes you feel like working and brings a sense of calmness. Look at that bright sun in the background behind the trees. Look at the color contrast! It is really magnificent.

          Cherry blossoms are always reliably beautiful. Look at nature from another breathtaking view! This picture is the perfect example to tell you what nature and togetherness is all about. I’d love to take a walk right here. A gorgeous view to say the very least.

            Something very mysterious about this picture. Something subtle can show that life is not always happy, but that there are a sad times as well. That does not mean we cannot relish it. The good and the bad is what life is all about. Take them in the same stride. Just believe and have faith in yourself.

              The blue waters and the green cove will surely make you feel wonderful. A bird’s eye view just can’t get better than this. You get a large look at the open and wide sky with its light blue colors and gray-white clouds. You also get to see the mountains with their peaks and the wonderful landscape. The hint of green that the trees give also creates a dynamic edge.

                Butterflies are simply beautiful. The color contrast here is truly mystifying. The butterfly itself has wonderful colors—black and orange is a fantastic combination. While reminiscent of Halloween, it also brightens my mood in a spectacular way.

                                  A nice day and a nice view. What can beat that?

                                  Sunrise over Moraine Lake in Banff National Park, seen from the top of the rock pile.

                                    This landscape is epic and serene at once.

                                          Sometimes, there are just no words. You just have to stand back and appreciate.

                                            The purple in this picture really sets the mood well. A wonderful mix of colors.

                                                The sun is fascinating. No words to describe the simplicity and camera placement. This view truly is breathtaking.

                                                  Very odd, but very real. The car’s presence brings a sense of mystery. You get to see a whole dynamic picture here. The grass with its greenery is fantastic here.

                                                    Sometimes, a change in perspective can be even more beautiful. The pinetrees with the wintry mixture is wonderful here. Christmas time is a time of belonging, and feeling loved describes this picture well enough. I hope it reminds you of something special.

                                                          Take your time and really look at the details in each of these photos. Each one has a special depth—you just need to look closely in order to see it. You might just find that your sour mood has lifted!

                                                          Who has never gone through some ups and downs in the life? But some people can feel better in a quicker way than others because they’ve found their own remedies to heal the bad feelings.

                                                          If you haven’t found yours, these ways will help you instantly feel better and ditch that negative self talk when you’re feeling bad about yourself:

                                                          Advertising

                                                          1. Listen to the songs you loved when you were in high school or university, this will recall you of the old good times.
                                                          2. Write something. Write down how you feel as a way to express your thoughts if you don’t feel like talking to anyone.
                                                          3. Draw something. Draw anything you want because no one’s going to judge your drawing skills.
                                                          4. Read the postcards or letters your friends or family sent you before, remind yourself there are people who always remember you.
                                                          5. Silently think of a day or moment which you truly enjoyed and try to recapture that very first feeling. Was it the day of your graduation? The moment you traveled with your loved one?
                                                          6. Take out your photo albums and go over your childhood photos.
                                                          7. Cry when you feel like doing so. There’s nothing wrong with crying; cry out all your fear and stress and just face the truth after crying.
                                                          8. Sing loudly like no one can hear you. Do you know that in Japan, people always sing karaoke to relieve stress?
                                                          9. Cook a nice meal for yourself or for your family.
                                                          10. Read your previous diary entries and look at your great memories.
                                                          11. Dress up nicely to feel happier.
                                                          12. Don’t stay in your bed! Get your laptop or a book and sit in a coffee place.
                                                          13. Take a walk outside and feel the fresh air.
                                                          14. Sweat yourself! Go jogging or play some sports.
                                                          15. Pick up the musical instrument you used to play a lot and start to play it.
                                                          16. Tidy up your desk or wardrobe, you’ll feel good that you’re being productive and actually doing something.
                                                          17. Watch some funny videos, sure you can find a lot of them on Youtube.
                                                          18. Eat something you like, be it a chocolate cake, or an ice-cream. Just please yourself with the flavour you like.
                                                          19. Re-read your favorite book and write down the sentences or passages that you love.
                                                          20. Watch a new movie, there must be a movie which you’ve always interested in but had no time to watch it.
                                                          21. Do something nice that no one will notice, say picking up a rubbish in the street and throw it to a trash bin.
                                                          22. Call your best friend and just talk whatever you want! Human beings are social animals after all, connecting with people close to you will make you feel better.
                                                          23. Do voluntary work and help people in need, you’ll feel happy and satisfied.
                                                          24. Get drunk with your close friends at home – a safe place for you to get drunk and get crazy. Let loose and have fun with your very close friends.
                                                          25. Write an email or a note to a friend who you care about.
                                                          26. Get out of your routine life and meet new friends. Get out of your comfort zone! Meeting new people can give you new inspirations in life.
                                                          27. Look into the mirror and smile. Act like today’s already a wonderful day. How we act affects how we feel. It’s difficult to go on feeling sad if you’re trying to smile!

                                                          Remember:

                                                          Advertising

                                                          It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.  — Epictetus

                                                          If you want to feel better, change what you’re doing because obviously what you’re doing doesn’t make you happy!
