I had a doozy the other day. The one thing that actually pulled me out of my funk was how trivial all these issues were. Who lets a non-frozen banana ruin their day? What even is that? The thing with bad days is that they stop you from being rational. I am definitely not suggesting that exercise is a cure for depression, but for your average run of the mill blues, it can be pretty bloody effective. And in my little test group of one myself nothing beats it to get me out of a bad mood.
1. You’re not alone.
Sometimes something awful happens and you feel like everything is hopeless and everyone is horrible and just 'oh-my-god-this-is-the-absolute-worst-how-did-I-get-here-I-just-want-to-curl-up-and-cry'. It sucks. I've had my share of those days over the last twelve months. This is how I have managed to get through them and come out the other side. Take a breath Stop. Take a really slow breath. Don't skip this one
You know the type of days where everything just goes wrong? I hit my knee against the side of my coffee table this morning hard enough to leave a bruise and that was the real high point. Looking forward to something can soothe a lot of ills. I turn off my phone, light every candle in my apartment that usually means about tbh , pour myself a glass of bourbon on the rocks splash of water, squeeze of lemon , and lay down on my yoga mat to listen to an episode of Binge Mode the best podcast… possibly ever? Nix the phone dependency by actually using your phone to meditate with the Headspace app. Remember that episode of Gilmore Girls where Rory is having a no good, very bad day and wants to steal a yacht? My advice here is not to steal a yacht, btw.
