Some days the world conspires against me, and I feel as if I will never, ever accomplish anything important, ever again. So, I’m making a list of things to break that mood, attitude and place in my mind. Here’s what I have so far:

Throw away one thing – declutter

Say thank you for one “everyday” thing

Write, text, or call a friend

Learn a new joke and find three people to tell it to

Eat something you have never had before

Do something for someone else without letting them know




It’s working so well, I’m trying to do the whole list everyday. Any other suggestions of things to add to this list?


  1. Go to Wikipedia or, and learn one new word or idea. Especially with the wiki entries, I find them to be interesting enough to follow up on, and somewhat mood changing/distracting.
