  13. I needed to read this today. I’ve been in a transition between moving out of state, applying for jobs with little luck, and balancing personal relationships but all have sort of boiled down into a huge funk.

  19. Simply reading this list made me feel better! So I guess one of my tips to feel better is to write down all the things that make you feel good or that you love doing and re-read that list in times of need. (And probably also do a couple of things off the list.)

  23. These are such awesome tips!
