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.
- 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?
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Read a good book. Now you are speaking my language. I love reading romance stories. I have a vast collection of romance stories.
- Spend time with your family. – COVID has increased the time I spend with family and listening to them share their feelings.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
- Watch an excellent motivational video on YouTube. – I watched Denzel Washington.
- Block/Unfollow accounts on social media that bring down your self-confidence. I do this. Life is too short for nonsense.
- 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,
- 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.
