TIP OF THE DAY
How to Always Be in a Good Mood

Smile. Scientists can prove a direct connection between smiling and being happy. Plus, it takes fewer muscles to smile than to frown.
Exercise. Exercising creates Endorphins, which stimulate creation of the chemical Dopamine, which makes you happy and it will help you stay in shape.
Chill. Take deep breaths; relax on a beanbag, whatever calms you down.
Don't Drink. Drinking alcohol causes you to create excess Dopamine (the chemical that makes you happy), and the day after, your body can't produce enough to compensate, making you more depressed then usual- not to mention hung over.
Do Something You Love. Spend everyday doing something that makes you smile, be it cooking, reading, or exercising. If all you can think of is watching the television, get out of the house and try something new!
Think About Something You Love. Thinking about sad or depressing things will bring you down. Cheer up with optimistic thoughts about something you have been excited about or something good that has happened.
Think of Others. There is nothing like forgetting yourself and looking for ways to help and serve others when you are feeling down. As bad as you are feeling, there is definitely someone in the world who is feeling worse. Even if you just go over to a friends' house and let them vent at you, it will be worth it. Moreover, if it is not, at least you made their day better.
Transgender life stories from South Africa is a great way to educate one on transgender. The reason for twenty six stories as suppose to one is simply because everyone’s experience is different. The book can also provide much needed support to transgender individuals. The book is available at most book stores, so no excuse.
