How To Turn a Bad Day Into a Good Day

Maya Angelou rightly quoted “You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

We all have bad days, we all experience mood swings because of hectic schedules or some unwanted people. Don’t worry facing mood swings is not a bad thing. But, constantly having bad days is completely wrong and before making it a habit, we should all change this habit. Through this blog, we have highlighted some tips to turn your bad day into a good day. Let’s get started.

Simple Ways/Tips to Turn Around a Bad Day

1. Talk to your best friend/Family

We all have bad days in our daily life and sometimes we just don’t have any clues on how to tackle them. But the best solution for this is nothing but just a call to your best friend or your family (if you are living away from home).

A long call with your best friend makes you forget all your worries. It makes you smile, it makes you laugh, and it removes all the negativity from your mind.

So, whenever you have a bad day, just dial BFF/MOM/DAD contact from your contact list.

2. Listening to your favorite music

There is a saying that music is the best therapy out there. I think everyone can agree with it completely. Whenever you have a bad day your favorite songs from your favorite artist put-ups on your mind at ease and calm you down . It can make you forget all the mishaps. Music is the best stress buster.

So, I advise you to listen to your favorite music in case you are having a bad day.

3. Spend some time in the kitchen cooking your favorite food

Good food is the answer to all the problems. In today’s hectic life it’s not surprising having a bad day.

Anyone can have a bad day whether it’s at work, college or school.  During that situation they should do their favorite activities, eat their favorite food.

So, spending some time in the kitchen and cooking  your favorite food can improve your day.

4. Take a long shower

A shower is a place where you can wash out all your negative energy and come out as a totally different person. The shower is the most peaceful place a person can find anywhere.

Taking a shower is the best way to cleanse your body as well as your mind and your thoughts.

So, whenever you have a bad day just go for a long shower.

5. A temporary break from social media

Social media is an essential element for today’s generation. But excessive use of social media can cause unnecessary distress, anxiety, negativity. So, it is a wise move to take a necessary break from social media on a regular basis. It will put your mind at ease and calm your racing thoughts.

6. Nature therapy

Nature therapy improves your mental state when you have a bad day. Just the sight of nature can fill you with an abundance of positive energy. Roaming between trees and walking on grass, watching the sunset while sitting on the bank of river can force out all the negative energy from your mind.

Hearing the sound of sea waves gives a different feeling to your uneasy mind.

7. Watching funny videos

There is nothing a burst of laughter can’t cure. So, whenever you have a bad day just open YOUTUBE and start watching funny videos of people doing silly pranks, kids falling and laughing out loud. Laughing will drive all that stress out of your mind and will make your day brighter.

8. Do your favorite things

Everyone has hidden talents. Like, some are good at cooking, some are good with arts like sketching or painting and some of them are good at writing stories or a poem. So, in your bad time, you should do what you love the most.

You can cook your favorite dish or play with brushes and colors or you can capture the positive points from your experiences and write it down or can write a beautiful poem to ease your mood at that time.

9. ME time

I have observed that whenever a person feels down they want to isolate themselves from everyone around.

Meanwhile, you can binge-watch your favorite shows on NETFLIX and order an EXTRA- LARGE PIZZA.

This is the best way to enjoy your own company.

10. Spend some time in the GYM

Every person manages through their bad days differently. Like, some do like to do creative work, some of them enjoy music therapy, and some of them do nature therapy while some choose the hard way out of it.

So, whenever you have a bad day, sweat away from the negative energy out through lifting heavy weights or running a mile on the treadmill.

11. Look at the positive side

In every situation, a person has two options. Either they accept their situation and do nothing about it or take out the positivity from their situation and do some situation analysis and find some better option to cope with the situation.

Always be the second type. Never give up, never lose hope in any kind of situation. Stay strong and move forward with all your confidence.
