Good Times/Bad Times

Since May, I have had, just like everybody else I imagine, some good days, some bad days, some really bad days, some ok days and yes, some really great days. In spite of everything, I have actually had some quite super days. When I start to feel down, I try to look back to those days and remember what made them so super. So, here are some shared tips for bringing ourselves UP and not letting the really bad days win.

  1. Get up and take a shower, get dressed, and have a cup of something and eat a little breakfast even if you are not “hungry.”
  2. Do some stretch exercises just for 5 minutes.
  3. Go for a walk, go to the gym, just get outside. Yes, even if it is really cold, put on whatever you need and go out even if it is just for 15 minutes.
  4. Do a 10 minute house job and a 10 minute yard job.
  5. Work on you hobby-If you don’t have a hobby, GET ONE!
  6. Call someone. Make it a point to chat with another grown up even for just a few minutes.
  7. Read the paper.
  8. Read one of “your” books. I read books in a series and I like murder mysteries Agatha Christie style.
  9. Re-arrange some stuff in your house just for fun.
  10. Cook/bake something
