Last week, I had a not-so-great day.
A whole bunch of other stuff happened that just put me in a bad mood. And I realize that, compared to other people in the world, I have a pretty amazing life and that I really don’t have anything to complain about. But it was just one of those days.
And I think everyone goes through those days sometimes. So, in order to turn my shitty day into something positive, I decided to write this post about how to make yourself feel better on days like the one I had last week.
I have a whole list of things that will make you feel better that I posted just over a year ago. There might be some repeats in this post. But this is what I did to cheer myself up.
Treat yourself to your favourite hot drink
In my post about my New Years’ Resolutions, I clearly stated that I wanted to buy less coffee and start drinking it at home instead. And I’ve been doing pretty well. But I decided that sometimes you just need that fancy drink that you can’t make at home.
Go for a walk
It will clear your head. For me, this is quite easily done, since I have to walk the dogs every weekday. Not just exercising, but being outside in the fresh air is a great way to clear your mind and it will make you feel better.
Do some yoga
Another New Years’ Resolution that I’ve been doing really well at. I really didn’t feel like doing yoga today, but I forced myself onto my mat and felt so much better afterward. Again, with the exercising.
Listen to music that makes you happy
Because who doesn’t love a good dance party?
Usually, when I’m stressed or feeling down, I clean. I don’t know why but there’s something about it that makes me feel so much better every time I do it!
For if you just need to escape your own life for a little while.
By the end of the day, I was feeling a lot better. (This also had something to do with the fact that my broken boiler got fixed and I had a really nice long shower.)
What are some things you like to do when you’re feeling down?
