Everyone has bad days. If today is one of them and even Woo Casino or a Netflix series doesn’t help you, you should follow these tips.
Talk to family, friends, relatives. Call and find out how they are doing. Perfectly, devote an evening or weekend to communication. Invite them to visit a movie, theater, or nightclub.
Just sit or lie in silence. Or, on the contrary, listen to your favorite music. Or take a walk in the park (the square, the promenade) and admire nature, without rushing anywhere and throwing unnecessary thoughts out of your head.
Take them in your arms, play, sit them on your lap. If there are no pets, you can go out into the yard, feed and pet a stray cat or a non-aggressive dog. By the way, the emotional return of unspoiled yard cats is often stronger than that of pets who are tired of daily attention.
Make a quick cleaning in one place. For example, your desk, bedside table, hallway. Can be without fanaticism – just fold neatly what is lying on the table or nightstand, put shoes in place in the hallway, shake and wash the rug, wipe the dust off exposed surfaces. It takes 10-15 minutes, and the visible result will immediately lift your spirits.
Try to practice meditation and master any meditative technique. This can be Zen meditation, mantra meditation, Vipassana meditation or any other. Even if it doesn’t work right away, just trying to learn something new will give you a fresh emotion, which is so lacking in a state of moral exhaustion.
Think about what you have in life is good and what you can be grateful for. Good things can always be found. If you are constantly overloaded with work, be glad that you have it and you are in demand, if you are unemployed, be glad to have free time, the opportunity to sleep until 10-11 a.m. and spend time on reading, walking and self-development.
Read a book, you can read the first one you come across. If the book proves to be interesting, you’ll get an emotional boost. If not, you will see with your own eyes how much of life is interesting in comparison with boring books.
Say “no” to something or someone unpleasant that is poisoning your life. Sometimes just getting rid of unnecessary and intrusive commitments makes you feel relieved and energized.
Go somewhere fun and energizing. For example, to a dance workshop, a group vocal class, a concert where there is a fan zone with the opportunity to sing along to the performer, wave your phone around with the lights on, and dance. You can go to places like this on your own if you don’t have the emotional strength to even have a friendly conversation with someone.
Ask for a business trip at work or to visit friends in a neighboring town. You can go for just one day, using the overnight train or bus, there and back if you don’t like staying overnight in hotels. Any trip is a little life, and there is so much to see in life!
