I'm a fan of motivational tips because even though some of them may seem corny and random, they can be helpful in a pinch.
I needed a picker-upper the other day and was reminded of this list of things to do to ensure a better life. It may sound silly, but doing two things on the list — eating almonds and taking a walk while grinning like a weirdo (OK, that's not how he put it!) really did boost my mood.
I'm all about being proactive. What do you do to lift your spirits?
