Happy Monday, blogger friends! Another week is upon us, which means we have a five full 8+ hour work days where we try to keep up the motivation to hit the gym daily, eat well balanced meals, not hit the snooze button too often, and try to do things we love in between it all (like read, hang out with friends, cuddle with the boyfriend, etc.)
I know there will be highs and lows this week (like every week), so I’m planning ahead! This week, if I’m feeling down (or I had an extra hard day at the office), I’ll attack my bad mood head on!
Here are the four tricks I turn to when I’m having a bad day.
1. Popcorn & Pinterest
I stumbled upon this great combination, a large bowl of Skinny Girl Popcorn (lime and salt) and Pinterest! Something crunchy is perfect for relieving my stress. And as I scroll through recipes, fashion trends, and new workouts to try the bad day melts away.
2.. Bubble Bath
Step 1: Light a candle, pour yourself a glass of wine, and grab a good book!
Step 2: Slip into a warm, bubbly bath…. ahhhhh :)
3) Happy Hour
I mean it has the word “happy” in the name, it has to turn your day around! Gather your friends, roommate, sister, or boyfriend and head to your favorite bar. It could be a total dive bar or a high end wine bar. Go wherever you feel comfortable and know you will love the beverage and ambiance.
Sometimes all you really need to do is take your anger out on a great run! Nothing clears my mind more than putting down my electronics and getting out to breath some fresh air and escape the world for a bit.
