I took this photo on my trip home from Door County in 2012. I am reminded that we are beautiful inside even when we don't see it in ourselves.
Whether you are having a bad day on the job or someone did something to upset your day, always remember that beyond today ... tomorrow will bring a better day. Everyone has bad days. These are the things I do for myself when I am having a bad day or bad week.
- Talk to a friend/loved one
I instantly feel better when I am able to share a load with a good friend I trust.
- Listen to your favorite songs
Listening to your favorite songs can help put your mind at ease. I love listening to instrumentals because they soothe my soul.
Hug a friend, hug a pillow, hug a teddy bear! The warmth of touch does something special to the soul. Who says no to hugs?
- Write down one thing you love about yourself
I write down one thing I love about myself. Sometimes when I am feeling down or feel self doubt, I remind myself of the things I like about myself whether that be a hobby, skill, or attribute.
- Go for a walk
Going for a walk can help clear up your mind and relieve stress. Just being outside breathing fresh air can help re-energize your body as well as your mind.
