Hello again! Today I thought I would do a slightly different post to usual. Being far away from home I know how easy it is to have those days where you just want to stay in bed and not talk to anyone. However, I thought that I would discuss some of the thing I do in order to cheer myself up on these days!
When you’re having a bad day, I know how easy it is to stay in bed and eat every piece of unhealthy food that is in the cupboards. Believe me, I battle so hard to not do this! I know this sounds really cliche, but a healthy breakfast is the best way to stop yourself from doing this! Ill try and have some greek yogurt with some fruit as it really boosts my energy and makes me feel better immediately!
I also find it really helpful to put on makeup! This sounds a bit bizarre I know, but when I have makeup on and feel nice, I immediately feel 100 times better! I’m not saying you have to put on a full face of makeup, but a bit of mascara and lippy does the job on these days!
Another thing I really like to do when I’m having a bad day is go for a walk. Having that bit of alone time in the fresh air really clears your mind! I like to stick my headphones in and just wonder, it makes me realise that I have so much to smile about and just makes me feel so content by the time I come home!
When I’m at home, I love to have a pamper night to cheer me up. A nice bath with candles it the best way to relax and forget any troubles! However, as I’m at uni at the moment I don’t have this option. Which is slightly depressing! So what I tend to do while I’m here is put on some calm music and do a face mask and paint my nails and all the rest of the girly stuff that just cheers us girls up! At this point, I also love to read a book as it just takes me off into a world. I know some people don’t enjoy reading but for me personally, it just really cheers me up!
Whenever Im having one of those days where Im feeling sorry for myself, I just remind myself of everything in my life that I have to be happy for! I love going through of photos and remembering family and friends back home. I know this is a bit of an odd post but I know how common it is for us to have days where we just feel sorry for ourselves! I hope you enjoyed and hopefully I managed to give any you some good tips on how to keep smiling on those days where you just don’t want too!
Thanks for reading 🙂
