Things I Do to Feel Better

We all have days in our lives where we just feel a little sad or unhappy...

I must admit that I felt quite sad while writing this. It has been a day where I felt a little different than normal - gladly I know how to deal with it. I will write another post, explaining my previous story, anytime soon so you all can get to know me a little better as well. However, I thought about a way to share some of my personal tips on how to feel better when you're having a bad day.

Note that the things described below might not be suitable for everyone. It's what I do and it must not have the same effect on you :-)

 Whenever I'm having a bad day I just want to curl up in my bed and sleep for the rest of it. But I know that I can't stay in bed all day long so I always try my best to make most of my day - no matter how I feel. 
If I already feel bad in the morning all I do is listen to my most favourite songs at the moment and try to avoid the sadness that has been clouding my mind ever since waking up - and I must add that it happens quite often that I wake up feeling sad or unhappy. First thing in the morning: listen to music 

Next time you're not feeling too well try writing down your thoughts. Maybe you already have a diary or even just a word document on your computer - every place where you can write down what you feel or think is a step closer to more positivity in your life.

Do the things you like. The things that you enjoy doing most will prevent you from feeling any other emotion but happiness and bad thoughts will be shoved to the back of your head for a good amount of time. 
For example if you like playing the piano then learn a new song or if you enjoy doing sports then try out something new or simply go for a walk.

Run yourself a hot bath, burn your favourite candles, drink a cup of tea and lie down with your favourite magazine or book - personally this is my favourite way feel better. Especially after having a long day as it also helps to relax and forget about school, work, etc. for a while.

Talk to someone you can trust. Sometimes a little talk with your best friend, cousin or even with your mum or dad can help you feel better. And if you're having a pet then you probably talk to him or her even though they don't understand what you say but just talking about the problem without expecting an answer can be really nice and helpful. 

Like I mentioned in the first paragraph of this post are these the things that I do to feel a little better. I'm not sure if they work for everyone but at least you can give it a try :-) Tell me if you did and let me know if it worked for you ♥

Thank you for reading everyone!
