  5. Go to the doctor. Anytime you aren’t feeling your best, you should think about going to the doctor.

  6. Talk to loved ones. Having a support system can make a big difference when it comes to being able to feel better when you are feeling down or upset. If there are people that you trust, consider talking to them about the things that are bothering you. They may be able to offer you a different point of view, help you with decisions that you need to make, or offer you advice based on things they have experienced.

  7. Lower stress. Removing the stress from your life can be difficult, but it is possible to lower stress where you can. If you find yourself worried when you look at your social media accounts or when watching the news, think about staying away from them, or limiting your time with these types of media. Besides that, you may want to find a hobby or something to do that you like. If you enjoy putting together puzzles, you might want to purchase one and have it waiting for you on a table, so you can put it together when you are feeling stressed or upset. This could be able to improve your mood and help you feel better.
