I started writing this when I was having a bad day. Instead of just having a bad day, I decided to make something out of it and write a post which actually really helped! I hope this makes you feel better too ❤
Have a shower…so you can cry in peace
Having a shower helps me so so much! If I’m having a bad day or if I wake up and just don’t really feel myself, a shower is like the starting point that will lead to a productive day.
That last part was kinda a joke…though crying in the shower did really help me. But on a serious note, it’s really good to get your emotions out and not let them build up.
Give your pet a cuddle
Whenever I’m upset or things just aren’t going my way, giving my pets a hug makes me feel a little bit better. It especially helps if you don’t really want to talk to your parents or anyone else, just hugging your pet provides a bit of comfort. I have written a post about how my cats help my mental health.
If you don’t have a pet, here are a couple of pictures of my cats:
Doing something productive will always make me feel so much better. Even if it’s just putting my books in rainbow order or tallest to shortest, it almost makes me feel complete. Or maybe it’s that when I’m having a bad day or I’m feeling especially low, organising makes me feel somewhat in control. Decluttering, tidying and cleaning have a similar effect.

Go on a walk
The other day when I was having a bad day, I decided to go on a walk. I was upset all day, so I kind of just wanted to walk it off which actually kinda worked! I LOVE taking photos so on the walk I took a few:
(There were bunnies on the walk too! But unfortunately, my photos came out blurry)
Listen to music
I have multiple playlists for whatever mood I’m in but something that almost never fails to cheer me up is listening to musicals music, in particular Waitress! I also love Six which I’ve just recently been listening to so of course, now I really want to see it.
Apart from musicals, I have a playlist that I can listen to at any time, anywhere. I’ve called it ‘repeat mix‘ and it’s only a few songs but they are ones that I will never get sick of. For example, City Of Stars from La La Land, Rainbow Connection, Breakaway, etc.
I hope these 5 tips help you if you’re having a bad day, though I hope you aren’t!
What makes you feel better on a bad day? Do you have favourite songs to listen to on a bad day?
Best wishes, Cx
