What I Do At The End Of A Bad Day

I'm not going to lie to you, today hasn't been the best day. I wouldn't say it's been a horrendous day but it has definitely emotionally tested me. Blogging really is the last thing that I've been wanting to do and I was so close to just saying 'I'll skip a day' but I really don't want to let one stupid bad day ruin all my hard work. For the past week I've taken photos and edited them, written posts, scheduled tweets and I'm so proud of myself so I'm not about to let a few tears ruin it all. Unfortunately it is nearly 11pm at night and I had nothing prepared for today so it isn't going to be an exciting post with great content and lots of planning, just a few things that I've done tonight to try and make myself feel better.

HIDE UNDER A BLANKET
When I'm not feeling good all I want to do is snuggle up under a blanket and most of the time it makes me feel so much better. It's Autumn now and quite frankly freezing cold outside so being cosy under a thick fluffy blanket can be one of the best feelings, throw in a pair of fluffy socks and I'm already on my way to being happier again.

TALK TO A FRIEND
When things go wrong or something bad happens then we all know that one of the best things to do is to talk to someone. Whether that be a family member, a pet, a professional etc, it doesn't matter who you talk to as long as you are able to get those feelings out. For me today it's been a friend and she knows who she is, sometimes you just need your sidekick to give you a virtual hug and piece you back together.

WATCH YOUR FAVOURITE TV SHOW/FILM
I've basically been watching Glee all day. It's my guilty pleasure. It's so upbeat and is guaranteed to make me smile alongside other shows and films like Sherlock, Pride and Doctor Who. Sometimes you just need some familiarity, something that you know is guaranteed to make you smile and forget about the world around you for an hour or two.

CRY
This might just be me but sometimes to be able to get past something you have to let your emotions out and often that means crying. Too many people are ashamed to cry but if you are feeling bad or down then sometimes it can be such an amazing release, it gets it all out your system and my head often feelings clearer after doing so. Holding back the tears has never done me any favours.

Most importantly though, remember that things will always improve, a better day will be right around the corner.
