Today is Friday the 13th. No matter how superstitious you are, there is something about Friday the 13th that makes us cringe a little. Instead on hiding from black cats, broken mirrors, and Jason Voorhees, get the jump on Friday the 13th by improving your luck!

1. Wear Red

Red is a color associated with luck. Wear a red dress, a red tie, or red underwear. You would think green would be lucky, but it’s not. Wearing green will cause luck to flee from you, according to WikiHow.


2. Find A Penny, Pick It Up

It’s long been believed that finding a penny on the ground means at least a day of good fortune. So if you happen to come across a penny on the ground, “pick it up, and all day long you’ll have good luck!”

3. Eat Black-Eyed Peas

The food, not the music group. It’s a long held tradition that eating black-eyed peas on New Years Day will bring you good luck through the year. If you missed out on this staple at New Years, here’s your chance to catch up with some lucky grub!


4. Carry A Lucky Charm

Horseshoes, a rabbit’s foot, four-leaf clovers, wish bones, and more have long been considered talismans of good luck. Dig out your lucky penny or anything else that’s brought you good luck in the past and carry it with you!


5. Sleep Facing South

The Chinese art of feng shui says that sleeping with your head pointing south will bring you good health and fortune!

6. Eat A Lucky Treat

Instead of a rice crispy treat, have a Lucky Charms cereal bar. The lucky little marshmellows are sure to bring you some good luck … if not a sugar rush.


7. Think Lucky

It’s the law of attraction. If you think positive, lucky thoughts, good fortune will come to you!


8. Feng Shui

Along with the positive thinking, you can do a little feng shui meditation to invite good luck in your life. Meditate with a red votive candle surrounded by 10 shiny new pennies and chant the mantra, “I am lucky.”

9. Count Your Luck

Have you ever thought about how lucky you already are? It’s been said that you should count your blessings. What has Providence already given you?


10. Break Clear Glass

We all know that breaking a mirror brings 7 years of bad luck, but did you know that breaking clear, uncolored glass is a sign that you’ve avoided something bad? It is believed that the glass took the bad luck on your behalf.

11. Test Your Luck

Put your luck to the test. Buy a lottery ticket or head to the casino to try your luck. You could find out just how lucky you really are!


12. Wear Your Clothes Inside-Out

No one knows where this started, but it’s belief is so widespread there’s no denying it. Athletes and sports fans alike put it to use when they turn their caps inside out and wear them backwards. Put on your “rally cap” for to turn your luck around!

13. Try Something New

You’ll never know how lucky you are if you don’t get out there and try things. Take a chance and try something new. Go someplace you’ve never been to before. You’ll never step out into the sunshine of good luck if you stay stuck in a gloomy rut of routine.
