Let’s talk about bad days. You know the ones – they’re riddled with traffic jams, spilled coffee, arguments, tiredness and whole slew of negative thoughts. Sick, yeah?!
But I think that often people have a bad day, or maybe a little run of them, or maybe go through a really hard, challenging time, and then start to think there’s something wrong with them.
Like, you must have done something wrong if your life isn’t just a series of spritzes in the Italian sunshine? Right?
I think there’s this false idea out there that we are supposed to be happy all the time.
I don’t think that’s possible. Just as we have good days, we have OK days and we have bad days too. We’re not always gonna be super pumped about life!
But how do you tell the difference between a bad day and a more pervasively hard time? And, more importantly, how do you get through them?
This is the kind of stuff I get asked about all the time.
It’s such a common point of discussion with me that I even dedicated a whole chapter to getting through crap days and hard times in my eBook for teens, Good Selfie.
I’ve spent so much time thinking about how to get through adversity and how to handle the odd bad day – and I now have this handy little tool kit of strategies that I use whenever I feel a bit crappy or down.
To get it all clear in mind, I created this little flowchart (you know me, if there’s a chance for me to create a system, I’m on it! That’s my Engineering brain geeking out for ya!).
I thought you might find it useful too.
It’s a pretty simple flowchart, but it will lead you to a whole stack of exercises and strategies you can try when your next bad day pops up.
