Ways To Make Today Epic!

From time to time we all need a day which is just for us, so we say take a day off work or find a day to make amazing and do as many things on this list as you can! 

Upon waking, immediately blast your favourite song at top volume. Just for one day, don’t worry if you’re bothering anyone. Dance around while you get ready.

If you normally make coffee at home to save money, today is your day to splurge.

Pay for the coffee of the person in line behind you. 

Do something physical before work/class. Be it yoga, running, hooking up, or just jazzercising in your socks with your cat, you’ll feel good no matter what happens next.

Text five people you love with a funny Emoji or just a “HI MISS YOU!” The responses will trickle back throughout your morning, putting a smile on your face.

Go out and run as fast as you can just to see how it feels.

Wear something extra. Whatever your normal look is, crank it up. Red lipstick, statement necklace, coloured trousers, fedora, whatever. Just make it bold.


Blast the song that was “your jam” in high school.

Binge watch a show from your childhood like Boy Meets World.

Stir up a conversation with a complete stranger.

Grab a friend and go to the nearest city that isn’t your home. Or, just a town you don’t usually hang out in. Get outside of your everyday life.

Do something rash. Buy a plane ticket, ask out a stranger, doesn’t matter. Just something impulsive. Something that will make you realise how brave you are once you loosen the reins a bit.

Rock a look you’ve always wanted to wear, but felt you couldn’t pull off.

Go to a “tourist” destination in your city and imagine what it must be like for out of towners to travel there to see it.

Flirt like you’re Justin Timberlake on holiday. Whether you’re in a relationship or not, you can still smile a tiny bit too long at the barista. It doesn’t have to mean anything! Studies have proven that flirting boosts happiness overall.

Get some chalk and colour on the pavement. You’ll brighten up the day for all your neighbours too!

Go to Tumblr and search “LOL.” They bump up the funniest posts to this tag so you’re guaranteed a solid 20 minutes of belly laughs.

Give someone a genuine compliment. This is kind of the opposite of flirting, but think of someone you interact with often and pay them some thoughtful, specific praise. It’ll feel amazing to see that person’s reaction.

Get a psychic reading.

Go just a little overboard with everything you do. Usually get a drip coffee? Go latte. If you’re already at daily latte status, then you are a coffee lush and must go full Frappuccino with whip. Get at it!

Eat something you’ve never had before.

When planning your night out, go anywhere but the usual places. Actually do some research to find out what you’re missing out on in your town. Where is that place you’ve always heard about but never tried? Where’s the place with the reputation for being the most insane? You know what to do.

Ask your oldest living relative what life was like when they were your age.

Tip your waiter/waitress 100%, and resist the urge not to hang around to see his/her reaction.

Map out your dream travel plans for when you accomplish everything you’ve set out to accomplish.

Jump on a trampoline.

Look into brewing your own beer.

Go to a florist, you don’t have to buy anything but admire all the beautiful flowers and plants.

Eat whatever disgusting guilty pleasure food you love.

Take pictures of yourself and your friends! You may feel selfie shame in the moment, but in a few years you’ll be happy you have them.

Splurge on a massage or a haircut.

Call your parents and just tell them you love them.

Have an outdoor barbecue while the weather’s still great.

Get a free makeover at a makeup counter. But whatever makes you look really great. Give the person who helped you a big smile and let them know they made your day.

Go to a public place and people watch. Write a short story (even if you “can’t write”) about one of the interesting people you see.

Find that special thing in the back of your closet that you’re obsessed with but never wear because, say, it’s leather pants or a see-through bodysuit. Wear that.

Go to a few restaurants with your friends and share an order of the same thing at each, argue about which ones were the best.

ake a luxurious nap–let yourself fall asleep on the couch and don’t worry about when you have to wake up. Don’t set an alarm.

Find a friend’s email from like, 2007 that you never answered, and reply as though no time has passed at all.

Give a homeless person a book.

Make a pile of all the stuff you no longer wear, and donate it.

Go to the beach and relax in the sun.

Buy a ticket to a concert you really want to see.

Figure out what your anthem would be if you were a stripper. Blast the song alone in your apartment and sexy dance to it.

If you have to wait in line somewhere, give yourself an alter-ego and introduce yourself to strangers by your “new name.” Be the acrobat/flight attendant/ex-convict you always wanted to be. See how many white lies you can spew off without blowing your cover.

Paint something. Who cares if you don’t know how?

Write an actual letter to someone you haven’t talked to in a while.

Read old emails with someone you loved, and then DELETE THEM FOREVER SO YOU STOP TORTURING YOURSELF.

Super soaker battle or water balloon fight!

Climb a tree.

Make a bonfire somewhere and burn everything that needs to go: the pants that won’t ever fit, letters from your ex, a list of things you hate about yourself. Feel the catharsis as it turns to ash.

Write down a list of totally achievable things you’d like to do in the next year and store it somewhere you’ll see it sporadically and check off your progress.

Look up a complicated drink recipe online and get the ingredients. Enjoy a fancy cocktail in your apartment because, you deserve it!

Buy a bottle of champagne for no good reason, and then drink it in the bathtub/shower.

Smile, just because.
