So you're having the worst day of your life. It happens. We all end up in the pits on some days, but that doesn't mean you have to stay there for the rest of the day. Of course, it's not always easy to get yourself out of the downward spiral that a bad mood can lead you into. But there are tips and hacks for turning your bad mood around. There are so many weird things that can make you happy, it's almost overwhelming to decide which route to take.

Here are 10 weird ways to make yourself happy, even when you're in a sh*tty mood.
