17 Things You Should Do Right Now

You'll feel a million times better, I swear.

4. Throw something out.


Maybe it's that stack of papers you thought you might need in the indeterminate future and absolutely do not; maybe it's that beloved but completely busted pair of shoes that any cobbler would laugh in the face of. You know what it is, and it has to go.


9. Cancel a subscription you never use anymore.

Whether it's a magazine you wish you read but never seem to make the time for or one of the four video services you funnel money into every month.

(BONUS: Start using sick '90s burns on all your enemies.)


13. Take a quick walk.

Even if it's just around the office or your house, it'll do you a world of good to get up and stretch. Plus, if you stare at a screen all day (YES, THIS VERY SCREEN), it's important to give your eyes a rest every so often.

14. Now that you have looked at a pair of dogs, look at this cat.

Maybe you identify with the cat's confusion, searching for meaning and direction in a world that seems to offer none. Maybe you feel better, knowing that at least your life is more together than this mute, questioning animal, or at bare minimum that you have opposable thumbs.

16. Blast a song you dig.

If you're around others, blast it ~quietly~ while wearing ~headphones~.
