Have you ever felt so down that you want to sleep the whole day or go have drinks until you can’t stand on your feet or even worse, forcing yourself to throw up hoping that it will come out and you will feel better? You are not alone, I used to sleep for the entire day when I felt down and started to think how miserable I am and how I will never be happy again. Those were old days. I have changed my habits and have adopted 10 ways to feel good which I hope will be helpful to you.
10 ways to feel good on bad days
1.Go for a long walk in a park:
You don’t have to be a super fan of this activity or a master at hiking, walking in a park help you distress and clear your mind.
2.Call your favorite person and complain about it:
The person you are most comfortable with, your best friend or someone you enjoy talking to. Call them and get it out of your chest.
3. Make yourself a feast: eat like royalty,
You don’t have to wait for Sundays or when you have people over your house or special occasion to eat your favorite dish. Go to the grocery store buy all the ingredients you need to make the dish you saw on Masterchef the other day. Don’t forget to prepare a dessert also.
4. Read a funny book,
There are so many books to choose from and a variety of options where one can find books: local library, a book shop, online version, borrow one from friends.
5. Visit your best friend or fly back home,
Follow your heart it knows what is best for you.
6. Offer a gift to someone,
It can be as simple as a card where you write why you love them. Giving brings more joy than receiving. The best gift you can give to someone is your time: do volunteer work in your community.
7. Clean your room and get rid of whatever you don’t need,
It helps clear your thoughts, stay active and have a clean home. You might find hidden treasures or things you really need to get rid off.
8. Do nothing at all,
Sometimes the only thing to do is to let yourself be, do nothing at all. Allow yourself to feel bad, it is normal every single person on earth has experienced this at one point in their lives, take it easy, relax, take a long bath or a long nap. It is going to be alright.
9. My personal favorite is doing DIY projects ( I can’t stop, I really like that),
your mind concentrate on the present moment and on the things in front of you. DIY projets help me relax and refocus on what matter the most: the present. Doing activities which require creativity boost your mood and self confidence.
10. Play your favorite song,turn up the volume and dance,
What do you like to do to feel better?
Till next Sunday
