Bouncing Back from a Bad Day
I don’t think that I’m a completely pessimistic person, but we all have bad days. I like to think that I have very few bad days in comparison to the good days. But today? Today was a bad day. I want to know how you get out of a bad day funk. It’s something that I’m not doing the best at right now, but I have a few things that do seem to help.
Go for a walk.
I like to go for a phone-free walk to help clear my head and get over whatever is on my mind.
Pet the puppy.
Biscuit is an instant cheer-up machine. She is nothing if not always trying to cheer me up.
Work on an easily complete-able project.
I find that being able to start and finish something is really helpful at making me feel like my productivity is getting on the right track.
Clean the house a little.
Also making me feel productive, if I do a little cleaning, it’s helpful at making things a little less cluttered.
Do some baking.
I did this today! Creating something that takes precision and concentration is something that I’ve enjoyed for a long time. Pecan muffins are on the menu for the next few days.
So what do you do to destress after a bad day? I am optimistic that only good days are on the horizon, but it does sometimes take a little cheering up. I hope that everything is all sunshine and rainbows, and that you had a wonderful day today!
