Things to Make You Smile :)

We all have those days when we're just in a mood...and not a good one! If you ever find yourself feeling down or moody for no particular reason, here are a few of my tips to put a smile on your face! Actually, I would suggest doing all of these things on a regular basis. Laughter is good for the soul. :)

-Watch YouTube videos of laughing babies. If this doesn't make you laugh, I don't know what will!
-Dance like a wild crazy maniac for 5 minutes-try it! You'll feel better, I promise! Just go nuts.
-Read some encouraging Bible scriptures-The Psalms are a good place to start.

-Go for a walk and appreciate everything around you-the sights, the smells, the wind blowing through your hair. Be thankful that you have eyes to see, ears to hear, and feet to walk with.
-Soak up the sun for 10-15 minutes. For me, this instantly makes me feel better!

-Take a ride with all the windows down and blast the radio up loud-I'd recommend oldies music!
-Make funny faces at yourself in the mirror. Try to make the ugliest face you can. I swear, it cracks me up everytime. Okay,  maybe that one just works for me, haha!
-Hug someone!

-Go outside and do some cartwheels! Really-do it, I dare you!
-Spend time with a dog. They give unconditional love and bring so much joy! Snuggling up to my doggy always makes me feel happy! :)
"A cheerful disposition is good for your health;
gloom and doom leave you bone-tired."
Proverbs 17:22(MSG)
What are some things you do for an instant "pick-me-up"?


  1. love your list-
    i run when i need a pickme up,but i also
    i make weird faces while im driving-and make it a point to look at other drivers while my face is all goofafied---cracks me up when i get reactions..
    also getting my little baby boyto belly laugh melts my heart and fills me with pure joy-
    and when i have a free minute i go to that autocorrect website-gets me rolling every time

    1. Haha! I love the looking at other people with your goofy face!

  2. great tips! I was just thinking this morning that dogs definitely have the right idea about life. I can say "wanna go?" or "I'm gonna get that ball!" and they go crazy! Cracks me up and their enthusiasm is contagious.

    1. They sure do! Just the smallest things make them happy-they are such a joy!

  3. I like to go outside and shoot some hoops. My girls and I also like to go onto YouTube and watch funny cat videos. It's hysterical!!!

    1. Sounds fun! I wish I had a basketball goal!

  4. My boxer always cheers me up- she is about 9 months old and she is the cutest, sweetest dog ever!

    1. Awww! I love Boxers-they are so cute!
