Take a Pause

One of the first things to do when you are just not happy is to put your life on pause. At this point nothing really matters expect your mental state and happiness. If you feel like you are in a bad place in your life, just take a moment for yourself and put everything else on hold because at the end of the day, everything else is extraneous.


Stop Everything That Makes You Unhappy

If you feel like everything you are currently working on doesn’t make you happy and will not nourish your happiness in the long run, then there is no point in continuing with your life like that. Drop toxic friends, quit the job you hate and just leave behind everything that makes you unhappy.


Spend Time with Those Who Lift Your Mood

When you are in such a vulnerable state, you must be around people you trust and love. Spending time with individuals who help you forget about your worries will automatically raise your mood and re-energize you for anything else that might come your way.


Watch a Funny Movie

Even if you might be in a mood for a tragic love story, watch a comedy to lift your spirits. Trust me - laughing at something, even as insignificant as a movie, will make you feel a million times better after this positive entertainment. It has been proven that even a forced on smile can make you feel much happier. Right now the motto is “Fake it until you make it.”


Step Back and Reflect

If you are just not happy with where you are in life, take a step back and reflect on everything you have done. You might need to make some changes and adjust your lifetime goals, but if this means that you will be a much happier person than be it! Happiness should come first.



When nothing seems to be going your way, take a mental break from reality. Spoil yourself with a mental vacation and let your mind wander. This cathartic break can give you some insight into your situation and open your eyes on the problems that you are currently facing.


Make Others Happy

While you might feel like you can’t help others when you can’t even help yourself, making other people happy can be mutually beneficial for both parties. The more good deeds you do for others, the better you will feel about yourself and the happier you will be.

Ultimately your happiness is up to you. While you might not see it, happiness is a choice that you can make. It is just a matter of seeing things from a right perspective and changing your attitude toward life. What do you usually do when you are in a funk?

Instead of "fake it until you make it" people should "fake it until they BECOME it"

I think people need to be highly medicated for they unhappiness. HIGHLY.

I hate this latest update! I have to sign in every time and it doesn't go from story to story story easily. it's not user friendly to use at all.

I think we should just all let go of what's hurting us even if it's the things we love the most !!
