5 Things To Remember When You're Having A Bad Day

No one is happy 24/7. No matter how many perfect pictures you see on instagram every day, no matter how many tweets people make proclaiming how wonderful a day they’re having, every single person has a bad day. Whether it’s waking up on the wrong side of the bed, everything going wrong, or simply just not feeling your best, it’s totally normal to not always feel as happy as larry. I definitely find myself having bad days here and there and if you struggle with mental health issues, those bad days can feel terrible. I thought today I would share 5 things that might be able to help when you’re having a day where you just can’t seem to shake away those bad feelings.

IT WON’T LAST FOREVER… You didn’t feel this bad yesterday right? Therefore you won’t feel this way forever. Bad days are just that. They’re days. Reminding yourself of the fact that these feelings will eventually subside might even speed up the process.

YOU’RE NOT ALONE… Like I mentioned above, every single person has days like this. When you’re constantly looking at everyones best bits on social media, it can feel like you’re the only person who is having a real sh*tty time but honestly, you’re not. Remember that even those people who seem to always be happy have their moments as well.

SOMETIMES IT’S BETTER TO EMBRACE IT… The other week I was having a day where I just felt like utter crap, nothing was going right and I was fighting through these feelings to try and get stuff done. Luckily, right now I’m in my holiday and I had the option to just say screw it, I’m not doing it and I gave into these crappy feelings. I made myself a bru, put my cosies on and watched Harry Potter. By the end of the film I felt ten times better and managed to go back to my work with a clearer mind. Obviously we can’t do stuff like that every day, but sometimes instead of pushing and fighting against these feelings, it’s better to just embrace them and do whatever we can at the time to give ourselves some self-care.

IT’S OKAY TO TAKE SOME TIME FOR YOURSELF… Carrying on from the point above of showing yourself some love, it’s okay to do that! It’s okay to say, ‘do you know what, right now I just need to be on my own and be miserable’. We can’t all paste a smile onto our faces all day long and it’s totally okay to take some quiet time to yourself to recoup.

YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY WILL WANT TO HELP… If you’re having a really bad day, it’s okay to reach out to someone. Your family/friends will not be annoyed at you for wanting to chat, wanting to go out somewhere or even for wanting to be left alone. They’ll respect that you’re not having your best day and it is 100% okay to ask for help when you need it.

How do you deal with your bad days?

  9. This is a great list, Samantha!
    If I'm having a bad day, usually I bury myself in my room and watch a good movie as well. I always feel much better afterwards!

  11. I love that you included "embrace it" as one of your tips! At first I wasn't sure how you could embrace a bad day but suggesting self car was a great tip!
