“A bad day is like a bad hair day. Tomorrow, it will be better.”
Life takes its toll on all of us, the pressures found at every corner can have a major impact on us from time-to-time, and having to keep up with the day-to-day can be difficult. Reminder: it’s okay to have a bad day once in a while. When you have been working hard day-after-day, soon your energy will decrease and you find yourself burning a candle at both ends – we have all been there.
Bad days can sometimes feel like the end of the world – I know it has for me in the past – please remember, it’s not the end of the world, you will get past it and it is certainly not a sign of failure, but more a sign of strength. Whenever I’m not feeling particularly good, I say to myself, “I’m not feeling the best today, but that’s okay, I’ll get through. I can do this.” It’s always easier said than done, and it’s difficult to push through the negative mindset and see the bigger picture, but with time, it gets easier. Tomorrow is another day and another chance for you to conquer the world.
Bad days aren’t failure, and we shouldn’t pressure ourselves to feel okay all the time because it’s unrealistic and not always possible. Whenever I have a bad day, I find talking to my boyfriend and family can really help and takes away some of the stress I put myself under. Talking, sharing your feelings and thoughts can be a massive weight off your shoulders and may also turn your mindset around.
Take time for yourself to unwind, relieve yourself of the pressures of life and surround yourself with positive energy. We seem to prioritise other things before ourselves and forget the importance of self-care and self-love. Taking that time away for ourselves can help increase our positive mindset and general well-being – never ever feel guilty for it. Bad days are inevitable, but it’s how we choose to deal with them.
In case you need it today:
- You are not useless
- You are not worthless
- You are beautiful
- You are loved
- You are enough
I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
