100+ Ways to Banish a Bad Day
On a bad day you can find me curled up on the couch eating Kraft Dinner, watching TV shows I have already seen and feeling sorry for myself.
I tend to hate the outside world and I am beyond irritable.
My impatience is even higher than normal, I can cry at the drop of a hat and I don't care about the future or what I put into my mouth
.I am what you call “the Very Cranky Bear” (and don't poke the bear - it only makes it worse)
I let my emotions eat at me
.I turn tiny mole hills into mountains and everyone is my enemy.
Really not a healthy place to be.
So in these moments I have created a list that I call “My Emergency Plan” that has over 100+ things that I love to do.
So when I am in this dark place I look at my list and I choose whatever suits the mood and the moment. Sometimes I have to do 3 or 4 of them before I even begin to feel human again.
One day I was in such a bad place and I was so tired I just grabbed a new book and spent the entire day reading it.
Crappy days come - we cannot stop them - but we can change how they effect our day for!
Feel free to make your own list.
Comment below with things you love to do that are not on my list!
I would love to get to 200+!
