We all have those days. You know, when everything seems to go wrong and everyone around you is getting on your last nerve. It may be the result of a bad mood, difficult personal circumstances, or just an unlucky string of events. Whatever the case may be, it is possible to transform a difficult day into something more manageable and full of light. Need a little help making it happen? Here are some super effective tips and tricks to combat bad days.
Identify the Real Issue. The best place to start is to try and uncover the actual reason behind your bad day. Has something been weighing on your mind? Are you afraid or anxious about any upcoming changes? Has your attitude been a little off lately? Once you can put a little logic behind the way you feel, it will be easier to determine which aspects of your bad day are caused by outside factors and which are caused by your own emotions, fears, and doubts. Do a little soul searching. Connecting with yourself will not only help you figure out the root of the problem but also make you feel more grounded.
Grounding and Cleansing Crystals. Speaking of grounding! This is a great opportunity to use some of your trusted grounding stones (like hematite or smoky quartz) or cleansing crystals (like moonstone and selenite) to clear away any negativity and re-connect to who you really are. If you are able, create a grid focused on positivity and joyous experiences. This will help you attract those things into your life and re-focus your energy on the good rather than the not-so-good aspects of your day. Otherwise, you can meditate with helpful crystals or carry them in your pocket for an added boost.
Tap Into Your Creative Side. Some people get into a negative headspace and immediately hide away from joy. Are you one of those people? Acknowledge whether or not you do this…and make sure you don’t in the future. Resist the urge to continue your bad day (or days) by doing something creative. Paint, draw, write a story, journal, or brainstorm some fun ideas for the weekend Absolutely anything on the creative side is a good idea. It can help you express how you feel in a healthy and constructive way – and help you break yourself out of that bad day mentality.
Bad days happen to good people. So do what you can to put them into perspective and shake that negative energy loose!
