Hello lovelies! Welcome back to my blog!
Bad days. We all have them. Some more than others, but when we have them, it can feel like the end of the world. They’re shit, and we all deal with them differently. But there are things that we can do to get through it.
So here’s a list of a few things we can do to bounce back from a bad day. Enjoy!
Read a book
Sometimes, getting lost in a random character’s story can make you temporarily forget about yours.
Go for a walk
Walk somewhere beautiful if you can. Being in a nice environment can help you to be more in the moment as you enjoy your present view rather than going over what’s on your phone. Plus, exercising gets your endorphins going, which will make you happy.
Make your favourite meal
There’s just something about eating mac and cheese and a cheese toasty after a bad day that always makes me feel better.
Take a nap
When all you want to do is curl up in a ball and avoid the world for a while, try taking a nap. It’ll fulfil your antisocial tendencies and let you recharge for a little.
Watch your favourite Disney movie
What better way to cheer up than to watch a movie from your childhood! Some of my favourites include Finding Nemo, The Little Mermaid and Mulan. They’re my go to films when I’m having a bad day.
Write a gratitude list
Having a list of things you are grateful for will boost your happiness and make you realise that this is only temporary.
Call or meet someone
Whether it’s a friend, family member, or other half; enjoy some company or phone call with someone you love, and your bad day will ease away on its own.
Have a warm drink
It turns out us British might be onto something. A 2008 study found that hot beverages promote warm feelings. So go ahead, have that cup of tea.
Watch a box set of your favourite show
Some TV shows never fail to make us feel better, whether it’s True Blood, Friends or Sex and the City. Forget about your issues by getting lost in your favourite characters adventures.
When was the last time you pampered yourself? Paint your nails, put on a face mask or enjoy a bubble bath. It can help you relax and reduce stress.
