“Don’t Worry Be Happy” – 4 Ways to Help You Stay Happy This Winter

Winter tends to bring darkness, cold weather, and cause many people to become emotional wrecks. Some people suffer from frequent depression, others from seasonal depression, and everyone else just seems to get in a bad mood when there’s less light out. However, there are some things everyone can do to make them feel happier.

1. Listen to Some Music – Music has a very wide range of abilities, from getting us pumped up for the big game, or calming us down so we can relax after a hard day of work. When we listen to music, endorphins are released causing that sort of happy feeling we get from sex or food.


2. Laugh
– When you’re in a rather foul mood laughing can sometimes be hard. However, laughing is one of the best things to cheer you up. Try inviting a group of your friends over to watch a funny movie. The chances you’ll laugh increase significantly when you’re with others than when you’re alone. Laughing not only triggers endorphins, making you happier, but reduces specific stress hormones, and strengthens your immune system.

3. List the Things You’re Thankful For – It may seem kind of weird, but occasionally when you’re in a bad mood try writing down a few things you’re thankful for. This may help put things into perspective for you, and help you really see how lucky you are. However, don’t try this too often as it will lose its effectiveness over time. Additionally, it might not work for everyone, but it certainly couldn’t hurt to try.

4. Sex –Sex causes endorphins to be released that help reduce pain, but when there is no pain present, the endorphins can cause euphoria. A healthy sex life can significantly improve your overall mood, and actually provide many health benefits, such as a reducing your stress level.

Hearing Damage From Rock Concerts, Oh It Hurts So Good!


Have you ever been to a really good, but really loud rock concert, Jonas Brothers fans won’t know what I’m talking about here, then you’ve probably experienced that certain ringing in your ears. Along with this there is that feeling you get that your hearing will never come back to you. I remember after my first real rock concert my ears were ringing so loud I couldn’t hear an of the sounds around me very well. I was about 10 or 11 and I was convinced that my hearing would remain like this for the rest of my life. To my relief, a couple of days after the concert my ears were better. Better, but never the exact same.

The truth is that the ringing sound is essentially the sound of your ears dying. Well maybe not dying, but more so the sound of damage being done to your ears. Rock concerts are on average about 120 decibels (dB). How loud is 12dB? Well look at it this way, a gunshot or a jet taking off is 130dB only 10 above the average rock concert. However, some rock concerts peak at 150dB, 20dB above the noise from a jet taking off. What does this mean for your ears? Well .25 hours of noise at only 115dB will be enough to damage your hearing.

Remember that if you plan on going to many loud concerts try to keep in mind that if you aren’t careful you may end up permanently damaging your ears. Ear plugs are a good way to help reduce or even prevent hearing loss. If you decide not to protect your ears then make sure if you experience any troubling signs of permanent hearing damage to go see your doctor. Medications can be administered to reduce the damage done to your hearing.

5 Ways to Reduce Stress


Try Writing – Write about everything you think is causing you stress. Write about all those little things that annoy you, agitate you. Write about something that happened that made you angry, or sad. Write about something that you find pleasure in, maybe a short story with a cliché happy ending. Just write for the sake of writing, it might take your mind off the thing(s) that make you stressed out.

Talk It Out – Find someone you know you can trust and who is a good listener who won’t judge you. Then let it all out. Talk about that thing at work that you find frustrating, like that paper that your boss just won’t accept. Talk about something that made you sad, cry if you have to. Get angry if you must, just don’t keep all the emotion bottled inside you, it has a way of just erupting at the most inopportune moments.

Exercise – Getting regular exercise is one of, if not the best way to relieve stress. It allows you to have a physical outlet for all that stress that’s been bringing you down. Stretching will help with muscle tension and many people find stretching relaxing. Why not work on some deep breathing at the same time to help you relax.

Eat Some Chocolate – Chocolate makes you happy and when you are stressed out being happy is the one thing in the world you need. Not only will chocolate lighten your mood, it tastes really good too.

Listen To Music – Music is such a powerful tool. There is a lot of music that will help you calm down and relax. Even though it might not be your preferred type of music try listening to something slower or more mellow. Although it is a little bit weird it does work. I personally am a rock and metal music fan. However, sometimes it’s good to listen to something a bit slower. Even if you’re not into going to something like the sound of ocean waves you can still go more for a soft rock song. Maybe one of the slower songs from the groups “Muse,” or “Red Hot Chili Peppers.”
