So we’ve all been there, sometimes you have a reason and sometime you don’t, but we all experience bad days.
It may be because of your workload, your surrounding, or just the weather, but know its normal and know you can get out of the funk. The below pointers, are things that have helped me be and stay more positive and I hope they help inspire you too!
Now I know this sounds like the obvious, but really really take a breath. When you deep breathe, hold it in for 5 seconds and release. Repeat this for 2 minutes and see how your mental state, emotions and understanding changes. You can also try meditating, doing yoga, or as cliche as it sounds go for a walk. It’s life changing.
2: Focus on the Root
Once you’ve calmed down, if there is an issue, address it, if you can. If you are arguing with someone or you’re stressed over an exam. Write down a list of things you can do to alter the situation and begin your process. However if the situation is out of your hands, it may help for you to write things down anyway, to just release the tension, anger or sadness from your heart.
3: Leave your home
The worst thing you can do, is to stay and sit with your sadness, pain or anger. It’s easier said than done, I know, however try leaving your room or house and step outside for a bit. This can be as simple as running errands, going to the gym, or taking your laptop and going to the local coffee shop to get some work done. I’ve done this myself numerous times and cannot even begin to tell you, how much it’s helped me. Matter of fact I do this a few times a week, because sometimes I just need to see new faces whilst I work and breathe fresh air.
I grab my laptop, my Snapwireless phone charger and it’s as simple as that! If I want to pop out of my house, I don’t want my phone dying on me and it’s as simple as placing my phone on their gadget and you’re good to go! While you work on your laptop, its charging next to you! It’s quite a light portable device that can fit anywhere from in your bag, to your car and pockets. They also have a magnetic car device too, which makes things convenient and handy. With express shipping worldwide, your phone will be 100% every.single.day, even when you’re out for hours.

4: Know how Powerful you are
Now, I know you may not want to hear this when you’re having a bad day, but understand the power inside of you. Know things are up to you and they can be changed at anytime. We all go through difficult days and ups and downs, however if we didn’t have any “off” days, would we appreciate the great times or the “highs”?
I like to think life gives us lessons and sometimes we see them and at other times we don’t, but they’re there and nothing goes unplanned. Each day brings us closer to our goals and dreams and it’s up to us, to see that. Trust in the fact that everything will be more than okay. Always.
5: Talk, talk, talk
Some people open up to others and some close off. However, I’m a strong believer of opening up when you’re feeling down. Call up your mum, dad, sister, your friends and just talk. Get it off your chest and let the universe help you get from point A to B. It helps every single time.
I hope these pointers helped. Just know I believe in you and it will get better if you’re feeling down.
Sending love and hugs. Keep Smiling.
