Little Boosts That Can Turn Your Day Around!

November 26, 2020

 Bad days happen to everyone, but we don't have to let them stop us in our tracks. In fact, there are plenty of actions that can help us transform a disastrous day into a wonderful one. Keep reading to find out what they are. 

Remind yourself of your values 

Goals are all well and good, but you aren't going to hit them every day. In fact, being too goal-driven means you can speed through life without ever really being present. It can also mean that you put yourself under a great deal of pressure as well. 

Instead, why not try living by your values? Those things that you hold dear. In fact, we can live by our values much more consistently than we can achieve finite goals all the time. 

Of course, to do this, you will need to first identify those values that drive you — something you can do by watching the video below.  Also, another advantage of living in this way, we can remind ourselves of our values when we are having a bad day. Then recommit to these and redirect a less than ideal day into a much more meaningful experience. 

Take a minute for yourself

Sometimes all we need to turn a bad day around is to take a little time for ourselves - a time where we do less and get in touch with what is happening in our minds and body more. 

For some folks sipping a cup of coffee can do the trick, while for others, meditation or yoga can work wonders. Still, others will use tools like CBD oil or dab pens to help them to slow down and recenter themselves. Something that will enable them to re-enter the flow of their day with renewed motivation and focus. 

Connect with a loved one

Connecting with loved ones is another wonderful way of changing the trajectory of a bad day. After all, speaking to those that love us most in life can provide some vital perspective. Indeed, we can be our own harshest critics, but communicating with someone that cares for us can remind us not to be unkind to ourselves. 

Of course, another benefit of talking to a loved one is that you can express how you are feeling about your day. After all, it's important to never underestimate the cathartic power of being able to name the emotions that we are feeling and identify the reasons that we are feeling them.  

Treat yourself 

Finally, sometimes to turn a bad day into a good one, all we need is to be a little kinder to ourselves. A fantastic way of doing this is to give yourself a little treat like your favorite candy bar, some extra time on a beloved hobby or even permission to slump in front of the TV and watch our favorite show. 

Other options include taking a long, hot bubble bath, playing a computer game, or even sitting down to read a beloved book. It's probably best to stay off social media though, as too much Facebook or Instagram might just make a bad day, worse.
