Think about the situation. Is it worth being so down about it? What can you do to make it better? What can you learn from it? Instead of putting yourself down, reflect about it and try to understand why you feel that negativity and how can you turn it into something positive.

Talk to someone

Talk about it. Turn to a friend, a relative, a loved one... The people who really love you won't hesitate to be there for you and support you, and talking about what's bothering you will make you feel much better than if you keep it to yourself.

Listen to happy songs

Put on some music, dance! But be careful, don't rely on sad songs when you're dealing with very negative emotions, they might be relatable but won't make you feel much better. Listen to happy up lifting songs that will put a smile on your face and make you dance instead.

Pet your animals

You love them, they love you, and they are the cuttest thing ever, right? Whenever your feeling down, cuddle your dogs, cats, pet your animals and give them love. They will give you love back and make you feel so happy to have them with you.
