Every once in a while, one of those really bad days comes along where one thing after another happens and it’s almost impossible to pull yourself out of a rut.
Waking up on the wrong side of the bed could set you back for an entire day. Sometimes even a week or month. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Here are easy tips to bounce back from any setback and simply turn your crappy day into a happy day.
Be present sometimes we become overwhelmed during crappy days and we tend to go to the past or jump into the future mindset, the best way to work through the frustration and anxiety is to be in the present moment.
With every situation that happens it is usually followed up by a lesson or something that we can learn from the situation.
Simply recognizing that there is an opportunity to learn could help you understand that the day is not completely life or death but rather an opportunity for growth.
When we have bad days it’s usually one thing after another and nothing seems to go right this is because one thing really does pile up on to another.
But it is important to recognize that this does not have to be your reality. By simply adapting the mantra “this too shall pass” can help you through any tough time.
Understanding that it can simply improve and it will not be this bad forever will help you feel a little bit less stressed out. Smiling is one of the simplest things you can do to feel better. In fact when you’re in a bad mood smiling can help you feel better.
You can always fake it until you make it. Which means you simply smile until you actually feel better. Be the mere act of lifting up the corners of your mouth sends a signal to your brain that things are okay.
The mentality of don’t worry be happy can be your new mantra. Let go of the outcome is also important. You can learn to recognize that expectations and things can happen in life that can be disappointing.
When we let go of the outcome we can actually feel better in the moment and know and understand that this too will turn into a good happy day.
