If you've ever gotten up on the wrong side of the bed, these tips will help calm your irritability and save those around you from your foul mood.

Step 1: Hit the gym
Hit the gym. Exercise releases the feel-good hormones called endorphins, which can turn a bad day around in no time.

Eating fish can also release endorphins and elevate your mood, thanks to Omega-3 fatty acids.

Step 2: Watch a favorite movie
Watch your favorite movie or listen to your favorite music.

Step 3: Complete a project
Complete a household, outdoor, or personal project to feel a sense of accomplishment.

Step 4: Avoid negative thoughts
Avoid thinking about all the bad stuff that happened in the past. Concentrate on the good things, and on the present.

Step 5: Talk to someone
Talk to a family member, friend, or even a professional, and tell them what's bothering you.

Step 6: Go to bed earlier
Go to bed a little earlier than usual. The sooner a bad day ends, the sooner a new day can begin.

Between 1996 and 2005, the use of antidepressants nearly doubled in the United States.
