As we head into dead week and finals season, we all need a little pick-me-up to make us feel better. Since you’re probably procrastinating on studying by scrolling endlessly on TikTok anyway, here is the Clog’s list of TikTok hashtags to watch to help brighten your mood.


For the pet lovers out there, this hashtag features baby ducks, chinchillas and bunnies doing some of the cutest things that are sure to make your heart feel fuzzy. While watching these adorable pets, you’ll be able to forget about looming deadlines for a couple of minutes. Feeling overwhelmed as you try to cram calculus formulas into your head? Don’t fret, and watch this TikTok of a bunny being a picky eater to ease your mood.


For those of you who are avid dog lovers just looking for cute puppy and dog videos, this hashtag features a ton of videos of dogs sleeping, eating and playing. Just try not to fall down the “DogTok” rabbit hole and spend 30 minutes watching a cute golden retriever puppy’s daily life — not like I’m speaking from experience or anything.


This hashtag features heartwarming videos of people doing random acts of kindness for others, from tipping Starbucks employees very generously to offering hugs to those who may need one. Watching these small acts of kindness is sure to put a smile on your face and remind you that there are still a lot of good people out there.


This TikTok trend features people listing the small things that make them happy, incuding random FaceTime calls with friends, sweets and sunsets. Reading the lists of things that bring people joy could help you realize the things you’re grateful for and may even inspire you to purchase or try out anything you see from this hashtag that piques your interest during dead week to relax.

TikTok can be a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of work when used correctly and in moderation. Hopefully, these hashtags will be able to provide a much-needed respite in between cramming for your upcoming exams!
