Sometimes I have those moments where I feel like the entire world is against me. Nothing I do seems to be right. And nothing seems to lift my mood.
It’s really easy for me to lay in bed and convince myself that it’s best if I hide myself away from the world.
For the past couple of months I’ve been trying to break that cycle. Even if I wake up and don’t feel in the mood to do anything. I force myself to get up and do something, anything.
I often find that once I’m up and doing something my mood automatically lifts. Here is a list of things I do when I’m feeling down.
- Write In My Journal
- Read Positive Thoughts From My Positive Jar
- Paint My Nails
- Read A Book
- Go For A Walk
- Call A Friend
- Apply Make-up
- Do Some Baking
- Do Yoga
- Take A Bath
- Watch YouTube
- Colour in Mindfulness Book
When I’m having a bad day, I tell myself that the mood is only temporary. It will pass and that I will feel better soon.
I’ve found that it’s important to not be too hard on yourself and remind yourself that you’re doing the best you can do. If all you’ve done that day is get out of bed and watched Netflix, that’s better than nothing. You could have just stayed in bed and done nothing at all.
I’ve found that you need to remind yourself of all the positives you have in your life and not focus too much on the negatives.
What do you do when you’re feeling in a low/bad mood?
