How To Pull Yourself Together

We all have bad days that seem to last a lifetime.. but there’s always a rainbow after a rain. Or at least a sun ray.

Nobody is freakin’ perfect — we plan our day but we end up sleeping in, spill coffee on our clothes or have a bad day at work.

Things like these happen to everyone.

The worst side is that sometimes we kind of let those bad days take over so they become worse and worse…

NO! STOP! Not gonna happen. Not this time. And here is why:

Let’s try to reset those days RIGHT NOW…

#1 Being Grateful

You may think your day is ‘slipping through your fingers’ but just step back right now and look at the bigger picture — count your blessings and realize that there are so many other people out there that are struggling more than you do.

Try to be thankful for every nice thing that happened to you and find that inner peace with yourself.

I’m a student at nursing and meanwhile, I was worried and anxious about my eyebrows that were done wrong I got to see children and people in pain that didn’t even compare to my struggle at all.

I quickly picked myself up and realized what is the reality. Remind yourself what you’ve accomplished in this life.

#2 Keep Your Relationships Healthy

It’s time to pick up some good ol‘ vibes by chatting and hanging out with your friends or family!

Personally, whenever I’m feeling bad or anxious I just call my mom and let everything out and she never disappoints to make me feel better. But also sometimes I’d rather just chat and hang out with my friends because a good conversation or some fun never hurts.

If you’re having a rough day you can stay alone and just excuse yourself, show them that you still love them and you’re not ignoring them, communication is the key!


#3 Relax Baby

Balance things out. If you’re overworked, it’s time for you to take a break. Almost like when it’s super hot outside and you have the urge to drink fresh cold water.

It’s time to do what you like — write, go for a run, listen to music or just take a nap. 

When you’re overworked there is a tension that needs to be released one way or another so you can feel healthy and full of life.

You could call a friend or just the family — and watch a good comedy as of the humor has a huge power. You could also get a nice mental clarity by joking about your problems — you can see them more clear as of the humor took all the seriousness out of it.

  5. We all have that kind of day sometimes. When I do, I just try my best to look at the positive side of it. I find some quiet time and thank God for my life and for the blessings He has given me. The thought alone that someone somewhere has it worse than me is enough to make me feel grateful for everything.

  6. One thing I would add to this list is music! Whenever I’m having a day that is less than ideal, I always try to turn on a song with good vibes. It’s nearly impossible to stay mad or angry after that…then I can sit down and re-evaluate what I am doing.
