Remember that colors are your friends.
#2 Laugh, laugh, laugh
The more you laugh, the better mood you will be in. So it would be good to surround yourself with people and things that will make you laugh. For example, instead of watching dramatic movies, watch comedies. This way you will not allow the bad mood to come back in your life. The more you laugh, the better you will feel – this is a simple, but very important rule that can help you in a lot of situations.
#3 Have a party with your girlfriends
When people are depressed because of the weather, for example, they often feel that other people do not have this kind of problems and that they are the only ones that are not in a good mood. Well, this is not the case. That is why you need to talk to your friends about it. You will see that they also have similar problems. Throwing a party is also a good idea to boost your mood, to have some girl talk and simply to have fun. You will improve your mood quickly this way.

#5 Eat chocolate
If you are a fan of chocolate, then you will be glad to know that chocolate can actually improve your mood and make you feel happier.

That is why having a couple of pieces of chocolate a day can improve your mood and make you feel happier.
#6 Try yoga
A lot of girls practice yoga because it does not only help them get fitter and more flexible, but it helps their spirituality as well. There are different yoga techniques that will make you concentrate on your breathing which as a result will help you feel more relaxed and at peace with your inner self.
Believe it or not, breathing has often to do with inner peace. That is why a lot of experts recommend counting to 5 and inhaling during the count, and then exhaling when counting from 5 to 1. Doing this exercise a couple of times a day can make you feel at peace with yourself and can help you start thinking more clearly about the things going on around you.
