Get moving. Move off the couch and do some crunches, or go for a jog around the neighborhood and burn some calories. When you exercise, your body releases chemicals called endorphins, which trigger a positive feeling in the body!

Learn a new skill. Boost your confidence and get an instant pick-me-up by learning something new this summer. You can find a DIY tutorial on YouTube for practically any hobby or skill you can dream up. Learn to play the guitar, take up fishing, plant a flower garden, or become an expert hiker.
