Hi! I'm Mahrukh Khalid,a senior in high school, I love to write and make people feel good about themselves so I'll do just that :)



In this life one gets up every morning, gets ready and sets out into the world to do their best at what they do. Interacting and communicating with others gets tiring and overwhelming. On some days you get through it well but on others you just can't. So accepting it and telling yourself that you need a break is always the first step.

Things you can do:

Here are just a few of the many things you can do to make that frown turn upside down:

1. Scavenger a bookstore

If you love books, go through a bookstore randomly and pick up any book that catches your sight, look through it, read it a bit and move on and do the same. You'll be surprised how many interesting things you'll learn and not to mention the gems you'll find. Not only that now you have something to look forward to with the haul that you buy.

Not necessary that you buy something but still it's something that helps you feel good.


2. Drink your favorite drink

Have a cup of your favorite drink whether it be tea, coffee or hot cocoa. Just relax and enjoy your drink, forget about everything else, just drink. Focusing on one thing which doesn't take much effort helps your brain to relax and diverts the attention from other negative thoughts.


3. Decorate your room

Decorating is a good way of stress relief. Again attention is diverted from negative thoughts and you can enjoy yourself and at the end you can admire the look of your room which makes you feel much much better.


4. A walk in the park

Taking a walk in the park to clear your thoughts helps you feel good as well. Walking is a form of exercise which sets your mind at ease and releases stress. Also looking at nature soothes the mind.

Try it and you'll be surprised by the results.


5. Put your thoughts on paper

Passing your thoughts from pen to paper helps you express yourself and sets your mind at ease. Writing is also a stress relief therapy and helps you relax.

Of course you don't have to force yourself if you don't want to.


6. Dress up

Dressing up for a party your not going to is a great way to raise your mood. Wear your favorite clothes and just look your best. A change of appearance will make you feel better about yourself.

Take a 100 selfies while your at it :)


7. Watch your favorite movie/cartoon

Watching something diverts your attention and what better thing to watch than your favorite movie. Watching cartoons is also very nostalgic and sucks you back to the peaceful times.

It helps you feel good without any effort.


8. Helping those in need

Helping others helps one feel good and proud of oneself. Looking at the needy makes one grateful of the things one has and helps you feel better.


9. Color-in

Coloring inside lines also relieves stress and improves your mood. Just forget about everything, relax and color.

Have fun and use any color you like.


10. Let it out

Bottling your emotions inside can be stressful. Always keeping up a smile in front of others causes us to hide our true emotions even from ourselves. Sometimes its best to just let it all out.

Crying helps express emotions that can't be put into words and cleanses you thoroughly and makes you feel better.


Rest, Relax, Enjoy!

Lay back and relax once in a while. Trust me its good for you.

If you neglect to charge a battery, it dies. And if you run full speed ahead without stopping for water, you lose momentum to finish the race.
