I think I’m a pretty upbeat person. I’m usually in a good mood, and though some people probably find it annoying, I just really don’t have much to complain about. Life is good.

But we all have our moments.

Sometimes I wish it was Friday and it is Monday. Sometimes I need a little something special just because. Sometimes I’ve had a rough afternoon at work or an argument with a loved one.

And sometimes we just need a little help to feel good. I’m sharing my list with you – some are sweets, some are calorie free. Some require money, others don’t!

I’d love to know what you do to make yourself feel good…especially the calorie-free and money-free ideas! Head over to the Arrowhead Sparkling Mountain Spring Water facebook page for some more “feel good” inspiration!
