Sometimes, there are days where you absolutely feel like the world is out to get you. Everything seems to be going wrong either in your personal life, you social life or your career life.

At its worst, it can be all three at the same time.surprise icon

When this happens, there is a great remedy that can get you to your usually happy self in no time.

1. Growing pains
There is a time in your life where you will go through a challenge(s). This challenge can come in any form and you might feel like there is no way you can overcome it. This is where you are wrong: as we mature; we become better equipped to handle any and most curve balls thrown at us.

You have to find it in you to accept the challenge and do all you can to come out on top of the situation. It will make you better prepared for all other challenges you WILL face in the future.

2. A little bit of TLC
In order to care of others, you need to take care of yourself first. A little tender, loving care once in a while is all you might need to a happier you and of course to being of better help to those who need you the most.

3. When you look good, you feel great!
There is nothing better than a little me time, getting your hair and nails done, shopping for new clothes and having a spa day or weekend with some friends is one of the best way to boost your confidence levels. Taking care of your appearance takes you one step closer to a better you.

4. Positive outlook
Having a positive attitude at crucial points in your life will be a deal breaker in your coping mechanisms. We all experience pain at some point of our lives and the way you handle these experiences, will help you to overcome the more easily.

You need to realise that bad things happen and just believing that things will look up eventually is yet another step closer to a better period in your life.

5. Be true to yourself
Finally, as clichéd as it might sound, you have to be true to yourself at all times. You have to make all decisions in life that will benefit you well in all aspects of your life (personal, social and professional).

Let go of the negative things holding you back, choose things that will make you happy and satisfied with your life.

Do all things that will guarantee you happiness in life. Go see a movie once in a while. Have a meal out instead of cooking, indulge yourself in in chocolate, go out with friends, be spontaneous and finally do something adventurous such as bungee jumping or hiking.

Laugh, love, live and prosper.
