You had a bad day? We’ve all been there. And, while it stinks at the time, tomorrow is another day. In the meantime, here are a few ideas to pick yourself up off the ground and put a smile back on your face.
Gather the Troops
Whether you prefer to talk it out or just sit back and laugh, a get-together of girlfriends is sure to lift your spirits. We recommend adding some spirits to the gathering in these festive Friends and Vodka Glitter Mule Mugs.
Spend Some Time With (Wo)Man’s Best Friend
It’s no secret our pups can make a good day better and a bad day, well, better. Stroll the neighborhood with your pooch or curl up on the couch for a movie marathon. The excited-to-see-you bark and loyal follow-where-you-lead attitude are sure to perk you up.
Practice a Little Online Retail Therapy
Grab your tablet or laptop and zone out by scrolling and shopping. Maybe you’ll find a new bracelet with a few inspiring words (we love this Grace Gratitude Grit option or a snarky statement makeup bag that (check out this one) makes you feel understood.
Work Up a Sweat
Running a mile, doing a yoga class, or even—dare we say—hitting the punching bag, can relieve a lot of tension you may have built up during a bad day. Exercise will take your mind off of things that are in the past and direct your focus to the task at hand. Plus, getting active can improve your overall mindset and, of course, your physique. We’d say that’s a win-win.
Let It Go
Sometimes getting our thoughts down on paper is the best way to quiet and calm the mind. Jot your feelings down in a Grown-Ass Women’s Club journal. Make a pact with yourself that once it’s out on paper, you won’t stew about it the rest of the day.
