Happy Monday! My little cousin got me sick, so I feel those same Monday blues pains that you guys might have! But cheer up! It’s almost Tuesday! And that means, it’s almost Friday lol. I don’t actually want it to be Friday, cause I leave this Thursday, and I really would like to stay here forever.
Anyways, I want to talk a bit about having a bad day, and how to get a little pick me up to turn it around (however, if this bad day turns into more than one, seems never ending, and is extreme- PLEASE talk to someone about it, maybe there’s something else wrong!). We all have that bad day- things go wrong, the day drags on, someone pisses you off…… The list goes on. Here’s what I tend to do. My poor friends and family…. They get the brunt of it all the time. Bless their hearts. I rant and complain and talk about what happened. It feels so good to just let it out. If I have no one to talk to, because everyone’s busy, I write it out. My “journals” make me look insane. If anyone ever read them, they would assume that I’m an extremely angry or sad person. But they help! I can say whatever I want and they’re just for me! Sometimes I even realize I went to far or that maybe it was my fault.
If I’m sad, or angry, this can two different ways. Sometimes, I get Ben and Jerry’s cookie dough ice cream OR a bag of my favourite chips (I’m obsessed) and eat all the food while watching my favourite movie. I’ll even have a hot bath with nice smelling oils or a bath ball from lush (the Dragon Egg one is amazing). I’ll even go out before hand and buy bath stuff so I can use all brand new things and feel amazing! After, I do my nails, drink tea, and get set up for a great movie and some tasty snacks.
The other way this goes, is if it’s a really, really bad day. These days, I just need to cry. SO on these days, I go to my room, but on the saddest movie I own (I am Sam, Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, and Extremely Loud and Everything Close) and I sob to these kinds of movies! Afterwards, I feel better. I just had to let it out AND then I start my process to feel better.
These methods are important to have! No matter who you are, you’re going to have bad days. Sometimes you need a break to yourself! You’re mental health is extremely important! SO give yourself some you time, and check in with yourself regularly to make sure you’re feeling ok!
