This week’s tip: You’ll get by with a little help from your friends.

This is a tip for you, mom–playdates are not just for kids. When I’m feeling down and looking for a happiness pick-me-up, this is my go-to feel-better solution (maybe because my friends make me laugh).

Although I seek my friends out when I need to talk about a problem I’m having, sometimes we need to turn away from our difficulties for a little while and just play. In this case, seek out friends not to tell them all the reasons why you’ve been feeling badly, but rather to have some fun. The idea is to goof around a little.
