01 Jul Turn Your Bad Day Around
Have you had one of those days lately? You know, one of those days that seem to last forever. The days where nothing goes in your favor, or the days that you want to throw your hands up and give up.
We know how you feel. We have also been there many times. And we are here to tell you don’t ever give up! We get how easy it is only to see the bad things that are going on around us, but sometimes you have to look up. Look up and see the sun–the fact that it’s shining. That is one thing that’s going your way. How about the little lady that waves at you at the grocery store? That is positive. Shoot her a quick wave back; who knows what she’s going through!
We could go on and on about the things that do go our way each day, even when we don’t see them. However, today we want to leave you with four life hacks that will help you turn your bad day(s) around:
- Accept it. Accept that you aren’t having a stellar day but choose to make the best out of it. Decide that life is hard sometimes, and bad things do happen, but that you’re going to give the day your best shot anyway. Having the right mentality is everything.
- Conquer it. Put your mind on one task and make it your daily mission to conquer it. Completing tasks and marking items off a list make everyone feel competent and accomplished. So why not focus on one thing and get it done? You’ll feel better about one thing, at least for the day.
- Get outside. Ask a friend to go for a walk or a hike. Nothing makes your mind and body feel better than spending time outdoors and soaking up all that nature has to offer. Even during this time of social distancing, it is still safe to get outside. Go take in the sights and breathe. Take several deep breaths and know that tomorrow truly is another day.
- Remain hopeful. Find a glimmer of hope. Go back to the beginning of this post. The sun may be shining; someone at the store might have waved at you. Take your present situation and try to find the silver lining!
Bad days will happen, but the next day is bound to be better! Chin up and remember how awesome you are and all of the little things that are going your way!
