5 Ways to Get Out of a Funk

Woke up on the wrong side of the bed? Feelin’ bummed out after school? We’ve got a few super speedy ways to feel better fast. Get ready to watch your mood soar.

Get down with the DIYs.
Pouring yourself into a project is an instant upper. Volunteer to cook din (breakfast for supper, anyone?), whip up a batch of brownies for your BFF or update your scrapbook. Letting those creative juices flow will make you feel fab.

 
Rock out.
Raise your hand if you’ve ever put on your most emo playlist when you’re upset (you can see it, but my arm just shot up). Instead of wallowing, make a serious effort to flip your mood by cranking some of your favorite tunes. Oh, and don’t play songs that’ll remind you of exes. That’s just a mess in the making. Tops on my list at the moment? Old-school picks, like Ben Folds Five’s take on Video Killed the Radio Star and Vampire Weekend’s A-Punk, and Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream. Bonus points for dancing around your room like a goofball.

Talk to your mom.
Yep, chatting it up with Mama Bear may help calm stress (there’s actual science to prove it). So build up those mother/daughter bonds by letting your mom know what’s on your mind. Who knows? Maybe she dealt with similar drama when she was your age.

Run around.
When you’re battle the true blues, it can be tough to get out there and work up a sweat. That said, exercise is a total mood booster. Take a deep breath, pull on your fave fitness clothes and exercise for 20 minutes. Hello, energizing.
 

Be sweet for someone else.
Write a note to your grandma, rake leaves in the yard, watch the movie your little bro has been begging you to see with him (for the millionth time). Doing something nice for someone else will give your mind a break from your probs and put the focus on someone else. Betcha making a friend or family member smile will bring a grin to your face, too.
