Ever had one of those days where you just wanted to crawl back into bed? Well I had that day on Tuesday. And I let it get to me. Really Really get to me.
I shouldn’t have. I know that I can turn a bad day into a good day. I know that my reasoning for having a bad day was just plain stress from some family drama. In fact, I was responsible for making something that was only a small hill into a big freakin mountain. It didn’t need to be a mountain. In fact, that small hill could have been handled with some deep breaths and a good nights sleep.
So what happened?
I over thought it.
I have a habit of over thinking when it comes to stressful situations. I remember things that have happened in the past, that was in the same situation, and then I get re-stressed by those past events. As if the current drama wasn’t enough, I add more.
So once I came home I tried my stress reliever. Reading. It helped while I was reading but as soon as I stopped I felt the bad mood coming right back. My next course of action was just to go to bed.
And you know what.
It helped. I woke up this morning with a better mood. And it felt amazing!
So bad days come. They always do. When they happen sometimes you can change that mood. Turn your frown upside down. And other times you just can’t. You can’t shake that bad mood at all. That is when you should sleep it off.
All you can do after having a bad day…is to have a better day the next day. And that is exactly what I did.
