Dear Carolyn: I woke up in a terrible mood this morning, for no reason I can think of. What are your best tips to snap yourself out of a funk? — Bad Mood

Bad Mood: Mine are pretty pedestrian: I warn people in case I fail at containment; I look for ways to laugh, with sisters or go-to videos, for the physical release and to get out of my head; I do yoga from YouTube, like, “Yoga for not punching people at random.” I snuggle my dogs.

Unless I’m too radioactive for human contact, I do something nice for someone. Even donating 20 bucks toward decency feels like a cosmic correction.
