So you’re having a bad day? Everyone gets one sometimes, its how you deal with those bad days that are important.
One main thing you have to remember is your worst day ever is only twenty four hours long and everything seems better the next day. Even if you have to go in small ten minute chunks and distract yourself from what’s going on that’s fine, you’ll get through it.
Don’t forget to breathe, all problems are valid no matter how big or small and there’s a lot of people out there willing to listen. Even if you haven’t spoken to a friend in a while I’m sure they would care and listen to you. Talking about things can lift a massive weight off your shoulders so try it, it could be a family member or a friend. If things are really bad maybe consider a counsellor or something like childline or 7 cups of tea (links below).
Do things you’ve been meaning to do if you feel up to it, go and eat something, brush your hair, doing something this simple can make you feel so much better. Try listening to music you know will cheer you up and wrap a blanket around you and eat some chocolate. Have a nice warm bath and enjoy it, do something relaxing and try to take your mind off things.
If this is the worst day, things can only get better. Think optimistically, you’ll get through this day and go on to have many, many better ones. Someone out there loves you and don’t forget that.
