Sometimes, the best way to get out of a foul mood is to connect with a friend or family member.

Texting a friend that you’re upset because you were yelled at by an angry woman in the check-out line takes the situation out of your head. Rather than stewing about it, you’ve done something with it. And hopefully you get some positive feedback from your friend that makes you feel better. Maybe you’ll even end up having a good laugh.

However, a word of warning: Be careful where you vent. Posting on Facebook about your latest woe opens you up for criticism, unsolicited advice or other comments that could leave you feeling worse. Instead, pick a good friend who will listen without making you feel bad.

P.S. Please don’t unload on the same friend all the time.
