This goes out to anyone who is just so over their day.
You know what we mean: The spilled coffee, the tough work presentation, the fight with a significant other. What's worse is your mind tends to replay it on a loop, thanks to your brain's negativity bias, making your tough time feel infinitely worse. And not to mention the negative self-talk that occurs after you make a mistake.
Enter these cheerful illustrations by Chibird artist Jacqueline Chen, here to remind you not only that you deserve to feel happy, but your presence also contributes to someone else's happiness. Science even backs this up: Research shows spending time with people you love (and someone who loves you!) can reduce stress and evoke positive emotions. How's that as a little food for thought?
"Happiness is not as elusive as it seems. It's your attitude to what you have that really matters," Chen told The Huffington Post. "Burning your last bagel could ruin your entire morning, or you could use it as an excuse to try out the yogurt shop across the street ... let the small things brighten up your day."
