Things to do when you're having a bad day

I'm currently writing this in the middle of a bad day. I'm getting annoyed at myself about little things with my health anxiety. You know the feeling when you think something's getting better, and within 5 minutes, it all goes downhill again. Well, you get the picture. So here are a few things I like to do when things aren't going how I hoped. I'm feeling better even just writing this post!

1. Listen to your favourite music
I'm currently listening to STEPS after a little bit of Abba and a considerable amount of time with my 80s playlist!

2. Watch the cheesiest film you can find 
High School Musical is always on the top of my list, I may have to put this on later!

3. Do some colouring 
Ah, the wonderful world of adult colouring. I'm still not very creative at all and I would love to be able to do cool things with different colours and textures. But even so, I got some beautiful ones for Christmas including a Harry Potter one which I can't wait to get stuck into.

4. Be around people
This isn't for everyone, but especially when I am at university with my closet friends, they know with just one look if I'm having a bad. Just a hug and some company is sometimes all I need.

5. Take a walk 
Getting out of the house is also a great shout. I am often worse when I am cooped in all day and just getting out and having some fresh air does so much good. I usually take my phone with me and take a few cheeky snaps too!

6. Find a hobby
I find that sometimes doing something away from my computer screen also really helps. That's why I started crocheting this summer - to do something and produce something that I made with my own hands. I also find baking a huge help. It allows me to focus my energy onto something that will make others happy too.

7. Do something for someone else
Just because you're having a bad day, why not make someone else's? Write your best friend who you don't see very often a letter, or pop into the corner shop and buy your flatmate a little bar of chocolate for when they get in.

What do you do when you're having a bad day? 



  1. I love this! I do some of these same things.

    When I am having a bad day, I usually do one of two things.

    A) Curl up on the couch and fall into a Netflix Coma of "Gilmore Girls" or "One Tree Hill".

    B) Lock myself in my room, turn on some music, and Draw (or write).

  2. Lovely post! I always have a bubble bath and a pamper along with some good home cooked food!

  3. Recently I have quite often bad days and I am very worried. Stress haunts me all the time. My friend advised me to buy CBD oil and take two drops in case of strong nervous tension. It works very well and makes me calm. If you're stressed too, then find out how to use cbd oil for treatment.
