If you ever find yourself in a funk, whether you’re stressed or down or you just need to step back and breathe for a minute to get you through the day, take some time to check out one (or more!) of these websites to find a little peace amidst your busy life. From random inspirational pick-me-ups to fun facts and jokes, it’s guaranteed that at least one of these websites will brighten your day.

1. Stumbleupon

Stumbleupon is a website that can literally take you anywhere – all you have to do is fill in your general interests and the site will stumble around the web, finding pages that you might be interested in. Disclaimer: this website has a dangerous tendency to draw you in and you won’t emerge from your stumbling adventure until at least three hours later than you planned.

2. TED

TED (technology, entertainment, and design) talks are short, powerful talks that are great if you want to learn a thing or two while taking a moment to step back. With a huge array of topics done in over 100 languages, there are interesting options for everyone, all of which are sure to inspire.

3. Buzzfeed

Buzzfeed is made up of all sorts of articles that range anywhere from mindlessly silly to very informative. If you just need a quick mood lifter, take a quiz or two and check out a humor article to take your mind off whatever is getting you down.

4. Cracked

If you’re looking for a distraction that is both informative and extremely entertaining, head over to Cracked.com and check out the massive collection of articles, with topics ranging from music to science to sports.

5. Reddit

Reddit is s gold mine full of silly, mindless posts, which sometimes is exactly what you need in order to reset. If you’re in the mood for a diverse selection of humor based posts, reddit is the place to go.

6. The Oatmeal

All posts by The Oatmeal are ridiculously funny while also riddled with undertones of seriousness. This is another great website that will let you have a good laugh and let off some steam.

7. Gives Me Hope

A spin-off of the popular FML.com, Gives Me Hope is a forum full of inspirational posts from real people, all of which are guaranteed to get you right in the feels. This website is great when you’re feeling down and need a little help getting your mood up.

8. Do Nothing For Two Minutes

The premise behind this website is simple: Listen to the sound of waves, sit back, and do literally nothing for two full minutes. If you move the mouse or touch the keyboard, the timer starts all over again. This is a great way to take a moment to yourself and collect your thoughts when you really don’t have a lot of time to spare.

9. Emergency Compliment

If you’ve ever wished that you had someone following you around spouting off hilariously random compliments about you all day, then this website is the one for you. You can cycle through compliments and select either ‘meh’ which generates a new compliment, or ‘thanks!’ which leads you to a way to buy a lovely print of said compliment.

10. Pixel Thoughts

The best thing about this website is that it put things into perspective. Stressed about school, your job, or something else? Write it in a star and watch it shrink into the distance while receiving a short inspirational message. It sounds simple, and it is, but it is a surprisingly therapeutic way to remind yourself that there is a lot more to life than the trivial things we stress about every day.
