5 things to do when you're feeling down

We all get those days where just nothing goes right or you just feel like crying at the simplest of things or you just simply need cheering up! So I thought I write down some of the things I do to cheer myself up when i'm feeling down and hopefully these will help you!

1. Support-  Having support around you when you are going through a rough time or if you are just feeling a bit rubbish is so important! Whether if it's your boyfriend, friends or a family member speaking to someone when your down is so important. It can really help get things off your chest as it's no good keeping things bottled up! You will feel so much better afterwards! Even if you don't wanna talk about your problems just spending time with them in general can really help. 

2. Distract Yourself- whether this is reading a book, watching telly or doing something you enjoy it will really help to take your mind off things. The worst thing to do (for me, personally) is sitting and thinking about it because that way you will just think yourself into an even worse mood- i'm great at this! Personally, I love watching one of my favourite shows such as Pretty Little Liars or Gossip Girl as this really cheers me up! I also enjoy watching Youtube. My favourite youtuber to watch when i'm feeling down is either Hannah Renee or Fabulous Hannah as they both post such amazing videos and they never fail to cheer me up.

3. Pamper- and i don't mean just have a quick shower and wash your hair i mean full on pamper. Run yourself a hot bubble bath with an amazing smelling lush bath bomb, grab all your favourite skincare products, light up your favourite candle, grab a tub of ice cream & a mag and play your favourite playlists. I can garauntee you once you have done this you will feel amazing!

4. Glam yourself up- even if you just going to remove it all straight after. This may seem a bit pointless but for me personally, I am most confident when I have a full face of make up on. so what better way to make yourself feel better than do what makes you feel confident?

5. Positivity-  It is so important to look at the positive side of things. It's important to appreciate what you do have not what you don't. I'm a complete sucker for quotes & sayings, my phone is basically full of them so here is a few of my favourites: 

She believed she could, so she did

Never let anyone dull your sparkle

Your life does not get better by chance, It gets better by change

Your comfort zone keeps expanding every time you get out your comfort zone

Ten years from now, make sure you can say that you chose your life, you didn't settle for it

Don't think about what can happen in a month. Don't think about what can happen in a year. Just focus on the 24 hours in front of you and do what you can to get closer to where you want to be.
