Sometimes we have days where everything just sucks. Things look bleak and you don’t really want to do anything except stay in bed. It could be because you failed an exam, got rejected from a job, got your heartbroken of you’re just feeling blah!
Trust me, we all have those days. But our problems actually unite us; there are hundreds of people who had the same problem as yours but got over it and are much stronger now! So here are five things you need to do when you’re having a bad day:
1. Tell Yourself ‘It Won’t Last Forever’
You need to believe in yourself and keep telling yourself that it’ll be okay. Look back at the past 5 years; I’m sure there were times when you wanted to give up. But you didn’t and you’re here now. You survived that and YOU can survive this too. Nothing lasts forever – life is a constant series of ups and downs. But when you’re down, the only way is up. This, too, will pass and better days are yet to come!
2. Make the Most of it
It’s part of human nature to make mistakes and we all make them, at one point or another. To think that there is someone out there who has never made a mistake is incredulous. But being in denial and blaming others only makes things worse. Accepting what’s happened just opens up the path to growing, improving and learning. Besides, what’s done is done and you can’t go back in time to change things, so just move forward – it’s the only way to go.
3. Try to Relax
I know it’s easier said than done. In today’s day and age, almost everyone suffers from anxiety. We’re all just struggling to find peace! But the only way to actually find peace is to take things slow. It’s near impossible in today’s fast-paced world but that’s exactly what we need. Don’t think 10 years ahead! Live in the moment and take things one day at a time. Life is not a race, we’re all living according to our own time zones & no one has the right to tell you otherwise!
4. Find an Activity for Yourself
When you’re in your darkest days, you need to find ways to keep your mind busy. If you sit idle, the depression will start to kick in. Do something you’ve always wanted to do; go take a kickboxing class or learn a new recipe. It can be be as small as reading a book you’ve been meaning to or as big as starting your own business! Keep your mind occupied and watch things slowly start to get better.
5. Give It Time
Let’s be honest, things won’t just magically fall back in to place. You won’t wake up one day with everything completely perfect. Things take time and this will too. You have to give yourself the time to grieve and process your emotions. Make sure you have a strong support system but be your own support system as well. Spend time with the people you love, the ones who bring positivity in your life, and before you know it, time will have healed all wounds.
