Top 10 Ways to Feel Great!

January is Feel Great Month, but it can be pretty hard to feel great during these cold, winter months. So we've got the scoop on 10 different ways that'll help you beat the winter blues and feel good!

10. Veg Out

Instead of going out with your friends this weekend, rent your fave movies and plant yourself in front of the TV. Make sure to rent a lot of comedies since laughter is the best medicine!

9. Indulge Your Sweet Tooth

Doesn't rocky road ice cream drizzled with chocolate sauce and whipped cream with a cherry on top sound delish? Don't be afraid of overstepping your calorie-intake once in awhile. Go ahead, grab a spoon and dig in!

8. Get Pampered

One of the best ways to unwind is to pamper yourself from head to toe. Apply a face mask to hydrate your skin, scrub down with an exfoliator to rid your bod of any flakiness, and hop into a relaxing bubble bath to soothe your tired muscles.

7. Spoil Yourself

Dying to buy an MP3 player or those DC sneakers that you've been eyeing for months, but keep putting off cuz it's too expensive? Treat yourself to something special cuz you deserve it!

6. Switch to Tea

As much as we all love caramel frappuccinos, we know that tea, especially green tea, is a healthier option for us. People who drink tea tend to sleep better, have nicer skin, have more energy and maintain a healthier weight.

5. Treat Your Feet

Your feet are probably one of the most neglected body parts, so give 'em a massage and pedicure. There's no better way to brighten your day than with a set of pretty, polished nails.

4. Revamp Your Look

Beat the winter blahs by getting a fashion makeover! Get a funky haircut and hit the mall to stock up on the season's newest trends for clothes, accessories and make-up.

3. Catch Some ZZZ's

Getting a good night's sleep helps you function better and be more alert the next day. Instead of staying up late to play Guitar Hero or pulling an all-nighter for tomorrow's history quiz, call it a night and wake up a lil' early to sneak in some last-minute studying.

2. Take Up a Hobby

Whether it's photography, knitting, or learning to play the drums, get involved in an activity that you've always been interested in. Participating in a hobby is a great way to unwind and have some quality time for yourself.

1. Get Moving

Hit the slopes with your board or skis, take up yoga or pilates (or both!), or play some b-ball with a pal. Any form of exercise releases endorphins, the body's "feel good hormones," which can help de-stress you.

Sometimes you feel annoyed with a sibling and you just don't know the RIGHT way to deal with it. I'm telling you right now that all that tension, the trouble, the annoyance can stop. But it's up to you.  LITTLE SIBS  [s:p/1koi] My BEST trick is to ignore. Act like  you have no problem with them. And move on, they'll EVENTually give up, TRUST ME. I've tried on my littles sisters.  BIG SIBS  [s:p/1jmr-en] They can be a bit... SASSY I am one anyway but you need to NOT mess with t hem. Even if this is coming from one herself, act like you have NO problem and be kind to them, surprise surprise! They might listen.   [s:p/1kka] Ya friend and Advisor

If you've ever thought your style wasn't right or you needd a style change think about how YOU want the new you to be like. It YOU anyway. What do you ENJOY wearing? What do you think will be most trendy? And maybe your parents might be like mine and might not APPROVE of your outfit. Think about you. Don't try to change to someone else but the new you  [s:p/1kk9] Your friend and advisor,

Well I say don't deal with your friend I mean comfort her and all but if she's doing all that I would leave her alone let her parents deal with it you guys are just kids ending your life isn't the solution and you seem like a really caring person but ####### help from the internet isn't to answer Tell her parents or let her see to see an therapist or something But don't let other people drag you down into depression

I have 3 close friends at school. Outside of school I have one. I'm soon going up to Secondary school. 2 of my friends, Kathryn and Sophie, are quite mean to me and others in the class. They call me names and push me around. I don't like it but afraid to tell them. They are also quite rude to teachers. When it's just me and Kathryn it's fine and I am wondering if it's just Sophie making an impression. I go to a small school (81 pupils) and making friends is hard for me. Please help!!
