Part 2 – 24 Things To Do-When You’re Having A Bad Day

Here are the last twelve things on the list of what to do when you are having a bad day. Yesterday’s list was pretty impressive.

  1.  Meditate – Inhale the good air, exhale the bad air. – It’s kind of difficult to do when you are wearing a mask. Have you ever inhaled your breath?
  2. Write a list of all of the things you are grateful to have –  I started a list. There is so much in my life, beginning with being here to write this blog.
  3. Dream a little – create a list of goals and break them down into monthly/weekly/daily steps—one of my goals in writing this blog is to share my knowledge with you.
  4. Listen to your favorite song and dance! Sing! Yell your favorite lyrics. I have many favorite songs, but you would not want to hear me sing. I know a frog is living in my throat.
  5. Read a good book. Now you are speaking my language. I love reading romance stories. I have a vast collection of romance stories.
  6. Spend time with your family. – COVID has increased the time I spend with family and listening to them share their feelings.
  7. Learn to do something new – try to align the new skill with the goals listed in step 3. I am doing my walking in place steps to music. I get winded, but I will go longer and add other exercise routines with it.
  8. TURN OFF YOUR PHONE or do not go on social media for the rest of the day. WOW! I could turn off the phone, but I do not know if I could stay off social media for a whole day. I will give it a try.
  9. Get off the computer and stop checking your email. – Oh! Boy! I know this would be a problem for me. My only contact with individuals is through my computer and email. Good luck to me!
  10. Watch an excellent motivational video on YouTube. – I watched Denzel Washington.
  11. Block/Unfollow accounts on social media that bring down your self-confidence. I do this. Life is too short for nonsense.
  12. Draw or paint – I crochet. I do not know how to crochet designs, but I make squares that become blankets. It is very relaxing and calms the mind. And now for the bonus,
  13. Laugh. Laugh at the trivial things. Laugh for no reason. – Laughter helps you feel better, and you enjoy life more. I do a great deal of laughing, and I keep a smile on my face.

That is the end of the list of 24 things you can do when you are having a bad day. Thank you, Joanna Rahier, for putting together this list. I hope this list is of some benefit to you. I had fun putting in my little commentary. I have not decided what I will write tomorrow. It will be something you can use in your everyday life. Until next time, stay safe, and keep the faith.

  1. I think taking a social media fast is pretty important, because I do feel the difference when I don’t compulsively check my phone and when I do. It’s nothing to do with the content, but the focus I lose from constantly cycling back-and-forth through them. Thanks for this share!

    • I agree with you, but it would be a real challenge for me. I never would have thought of myself as someone constantly on my various social media. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
