Woke up on the wrong side of the bed and not sure exactly how you're going to get through the rest of the day? We've all been there. Here, five simple but surefire ways to shake the blues away:

1. Upbeat Songs

Studies prove that listening to music can uplift your mood (and even alleviate depression, in some cases.) So jumpstart your day by singing along to Rihanna's “Work,” Meghan Trainor's “Me Too,” Becky G's “Shower,” or whatever your current favorite upbeat song is. You can also make a playlist (like this Cosmo.ph-approved Up Your Mood playlist and The Stuck In Traffic Playlist on Spotify!) to make traffic and long MRT lines a bit more bearable.

2. Free Hugs!

Hugging someone triggers a spike in oxytocin, known as the love hormone, and decreases cortisol, the primary stress hormone. So when you're feeling down, just ask bae or your best friend for a bear hug, and you'll surely feel better in no time!

3. Call Them, Maybe?

Sometimes, we become so busy with work that we tend to forget about our loved ones. So when you get the chance, call up your grandpa or take your parents out on a date. Doing so will not only give you that much-needed break from the stress of your everyday life, it will also put a smile on your loved ones' faces!

4. Compliments

Tell your officemate that her eyebrows are slaying or leave a positive comment on your friend's IG photo. Making someone else's day will surely make your day, too!

5. Get Some Sun

Do you know that catching some rays will instantly put you in a good mood? According to studies, sunlight increases the brain's release of serotonin, which is the body's happy hormone. It also helps your skin produce Vitamin D which prevents diabetes and other serious health conditions.

So instead of hiding from the sun, go out and have fun—just don’t forget to keep your skin protected. That’s why we love using the SkinWhite Advanced PowerWhitening Lotion.

Together with proper skincare, it can help brighten your skin in an instant upon application with this unique InstantWhite Formula, while its exclusive Advanced Tripower Technology helps achieve your brightest skin with continuous use.
