Things To Do When You're Having A Bad Day
Buy some fresh flowers
The mixture of colours and fresh flowery scents will be a massive boost to your mood. Fresh flowers never fail to cheer me up, I keep seeing the sunflower boutiques in stores and instantly feel happier.
Treat yourself to something inexpensive
I love to buy myself some sweets or a new nail polish when I'm feeling a bit fed up, something small and inexpensive so I don't later mourn the money I have spent later. I chose an item I will use that day as a tool to create a positive outlook and make myself feel better.
Have a brew
Get yourself a cup of your favorite hot beverage and a listening ear and talk about it, sometimes things seems worse than they are and a different perspective can really help.
Eat something yummy
This can be good or bad, what ever makes you happy. I think when your feeling a bit fed up food can really lift your mood. I love the process of cooking so making a meal from scratch would take my mind off what was bothering me.
Light some scented candles
Burning candles creates a relaxing environment and they are super pretty to look at as the flames dances. Candles are a great therapeutic way to relax and the scent can uplift your mood.
Do some exerciseI'm not a massive fan of exercise but I genuinely believe that if you spend a little time just meditating or doing some yoga you'll feel better just for having accomplishing something. Plus you will get a buzz from all the happy chemicals your body produces.
Take a bath
Relax and make time for a bit of a pamper. Use a crazy amount of bubble bath or an interesting Lush bath bomb. Do some reading or put on your favourite album and sing along.
Look for the positives in life
As much as the situation might be getting you down think of all the things you are thankful for or something you are looking forward too. Distract yourself away from negative thoughts to only the positive happy ones.
Have an early night
Everything looks better in the morning or so they say. Have an early night and start the next day with the determination to not let life get you down. Tomorrow is a new day full of new possibilities.
I hope you don't need to use these tips, but that they are helpful if you do. Have a lovely week.
