1. Election Season craze

Whenever election season is approaching it feels like it is the only thing everyone can talk about. In order to escape all of the election craze, you should try to turn off your TV. Avoiding hearing everyone else’s opinion and thoughts on the election on TV 24/7 can be one of the best ways of keeping your mind clear. Similarly, you should secondly try to move away from checking your social media feed constantly, as those can also be full of election-related content that you did not ask to see. Finally, whenever you are with friends who find themselves talking about it try to introduce different topics. Alternatively, start joking around to lighten the mood.

2. Getting a speeding ticket

Getting a speeding ticket can be quite a downer in your day, which is why you should try the following tips. Firstly, keep your hands on the wheel, this will show your commitment to keeping the officer speaking to you safely. Secondly, never apologize for speeding as in many states that admission of guilt will immediately mean that the officer has to write you up. Similarly, don’t start threatening the officer speaking to you. Instead, try to ask if the officer can give you a warning. In many cases, they will do just that and you will be free to go ahead with your day.

3. Sunburn

The sun is out and you have spent all day getting roasted only to realize the next day that you are red everywhere. To quickly soothe your skin from sunburn, try to use a grated potato, cucumber, or even a little bit of apple cider vinegar. All of these can help soothe your skin and rehydrate it.
