Okay so speaking from experience I know it’s not always easy to put a smile on your face when you’re having a bad day, but there are always things we should remember on days like that! Every #girlwholeads needs to know how to turn her bad day around, all on her own. It’s like an essential life skill! So here are 6 things to do when you’re having a bad day!
1. Talk about it and let it all out!
One of the most important things you can ever do for yourself is to figure out what can give you a pep in your step and change your mood. For me, I know when I’m having a bad day I can watch any episode of Modern Family or my girl Ellen and my mood instantly elevates! Whatever works for you!
3. Make Friend Time!
Your friends are your soul mates, and when you’re having a bad day, they can be some of the first people to put a smile on your face-even if it is a dog! Depending on what kind of crappy day I have, I know exactly which of my friends to call. ( I know you feel the same way) Some of them will make me laugh, some of them will listen to me cry and wine, and some of them will tell me to snap out of it! Your support group is perfect to turn to when you need to lift your mood after a bad day!
4. Squeeze me!
Receiving hugs definitely puts me in a great mood. One of the best ways to turn your mood around when you’re having a bad day is by just getting a nice hug from ….well anyone. I encourage you to start giving hugs to other people because you never know what someone else is going through.
5. I Scream, You Scream We All Scream for —- ICE CREAM!! YUMMY
Quick – what’s your guilty pleasure? Right now I’m pretty sure I’ve eaten a ton ( literally) of ice-cream. I know what your thinking but hey everyone once in a while you deserve to drown your sorrows with a rich and tasty bowl of cookies and cream! One of the best things to do when you’re having a bad day is to just indulge in your guilty pleasure. Be it food, a TV show, or thrift shopping, just do what you love and your bad mood will slowly start to go away!
6. Sing And Dance
Another reason why I love to watch Ellen is because of her rockin’ dance moves! It is a little sad to say but Ellen has more rhythm than me! I swear ( no lie) I sing my heart out in the shower, car and at the grocery store. I enjoy laughing, dancing and having a great time. My day is usually non-existent once I press play on my iPod! Music increases my mode and hey, if you dance you can get a small workout in as well!
