As the most popular app in China, WeChat often plays a crucial role in the social lives of young Chinese.

But spamming friends with content, spreading rumors, bragging, overdoing the selfies and poorly-placed “likes” can make it a social minefield as well.  Recently, a satirical post Named “Etiquette in WeChat Moments” (referring to the “moments function, much like a Facebook wall) went viral on Wechat and Weibo, summarizing 26 rules which are supposed to protect you from being hated.

raising your mood

I get asked about this a lot so I thought I would share some tips I have on improving my mood or attitude on a bad day.

1. Comfort: The number one thing I have noted about helping myself on a bad day is making myself comfortable. The first thing i like to do when feeling sad or angry is light a candle and calm myself down in cozy sheets with a nice book or movie. Your surrounding have a huge impact on your mood and can turn your entire day around simply by surrounding yourself with things you love.

2. Communication: Communication is an important factor ESPECIALLy when it comes to dealing with your emotions. I know it may be a little out of your comfort zone which I just listed as something you want to be in, but speaking with your close friends or family can especially help because knowing that there are people out there who care or can relate to you really does help. Feel free to leave messages in my inbox WHENEVER you are feeling as if you need some cheering up, I am ALWAYS happy to help.

3. Hygiene: Something  that you want to keep your eyes out for when you are feeling poorly is your hygiene. Taking a warm bath and clearing the filth off your skin can be a great way to feel more confident and happy. Cleanliness is extremely important and can really give you that “fresh” mood you were looking for.

4. Confidence: The important thing I have found to help improve your mood is self-confidence. Low self-esteem and lack of hope or belief in oneself can lead to depression or anxiety which are major things you want to avoid because as we all know they are awful things to go through which can make everyday harder. Something to help with this is looking yourself in the mirror everyday and resting to yourself one new thing you love about yourself at the LEAST once every day. This way, you can find more and more reasons to love yourself the way you should. Also meditating can help you find at ease with yourself or self-confidence, there are many videos on youtube you can find to help with this. Also, wearing makeup (YOUR CHOICE OF COURSE AND ONLY WHAT YOU ARE COMFORTABLE IN OR FIND JOY WITH YOURSELF IN-WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE IS COMPLETELY UP TO YOU AND SHOULD NOT EFFECT THE WAY YOU TREAT YOURSELF) can help or maybe just clean skin to help you feel more confident in yourself.

That’s all I have for now, but I will be sure to update you when I have more tips. I hope you all have magnificent days, love you tons xx
