We all have days in which we are anxious and feel the world crashing down on us and days in which we feel so despondent that we can hardly manage to get through the day.
Here are some tips I find useful:
Give yourself all the grace: If you’re having a rough time, give yourself grace and allow yourself to feel deeply whatever emotions arise without reservation or guilt.
Give yourself a treat: On bad days, allow yourself a treat. Take that bubble bath with your favorite bubbles. Have that bowl of ice cream. Buy that movie you’ve been eyeing and watch it. Treating yourself can be a great way to unwind and forget your worries and also allow yourself time to breathe after a tough day.
Meditate: This one can be hard on a bad day but trust me, it’s a good one. Allow yourself to fully be in the bad moments. Breathe and remember that this is only temporary. Soon your worries will wash away like rain off your back and a calm will come over you. You will feel a peace and grounding again that will help you lose the essence of the bad day and also prepare you for the day to come.Browse Front PageShare Your Idea
