We all have them… ‘those days’ where the world hates us and we hate the world. But here are seven little things I try and consciously do on those days which helps make them slightly more bearable. I hope you find these useful.
1- Smile – simple as! Just keep that smile on your face as long as you can. There is something satisfying about walking around with a big grin on when inside you are anything but smiley.
2- Make a joke of the things affecting you that day. If you joke about them you start to realise just how trivial they really are and the ones that aren’t so trivial it buys you some time to figure out how to deal with them rather than just stewing.
3- Go for a drive with your favourite songs on a playlist, with the windows down singing your heart out. Even if you don’t have a destination.
4- Don’t focus on the things getting you down, thats what they want! focus on the things that make you happy. Deal with the problems when you are in a more positive mind set, nothing good comes out of trying to solve problems when you’re grumpy and irritated.
5- Go out of your way to make someone else’s day brighter.
6- Do some exercise, it will release some lovely endorphins which will perk you right up.
7- Do not take it out on anyone else, all that does is make you unpopular and it doesn’t help you or your mood in anyway – if you can’t do this, just avoid people where you can.
So there we go seven ways to perk up your rubbish days. We all have them, don’t make the mistake of thinking you’re the only one!
