Many of us are stressed out right now. It makes sense, the world is changing at a rapid rate and I don’t know if it’s just me, but it seems like things just keep getting worse and worse.
And some days are just really, really bad. And some weeks are just really, really bad. So, what do you do?
It’s tough to have a bad week. Heck, it’s tough to have a bad day or even a bad hour. You feel bummed out, demotivated and you’re not sure what you want to do. If you’re like me, you’re often distracted and a little sad.
Bad weeks really do suck. So, here are my top tips for dealing with them:
Take Lots of Walks
Getting off your butt and going for a walk can make a HUGE difference when it comes to your attitude. Out in nature where you can breathe some fresh air, your head can feel much better and your day can seriously improve.
I’m big for walking my puppy. We walk at least two times a day, typically for 45 minutes to an hour. It gives me a break from my computer and we both get to stretch our legs. I find it does wonders for getting me out of my head.
Even if you don’t have a dog, it can be a great idea to get yourself away from your computer and out and about in the world. If you can only spare 15 minutes, that’s totally fine. Grab your headphones and enjoy a few minutes to yourself.
Take a Bath
Having a bath can be a really great way to relax yourself and help lift up your week. I’ve been known to take an extended bath when I’m feeling crappy, tired, or cranky. It can make some serious impacts on your mood.
If you’re really looking for a pick-me-up, I recommend using bubbles and putting on a good podcast or even a TV show so you can really spend some time by yourself. While you’re at it, put on a face mask.
Read a Book
Reading a book can be a great way to get lost in another world and shed away the stress of a bad week. I like to pick a crazy, twisted mystery or go with something lighthearted and comedic. Either way, I get a break from the day-to-day.
If you’re not a reader a good alternative can be to curl up in bed and put on a film. Movies are another awesome way to transport yourself out of your stressful world into someone else’s story.
