Let’s be honest, there are some days that are just horrible.
No matter how upbeat and optimistic you strive to be, there will be days that appear to be everything but.
Lately, it seems that I have had more blah days than I care to admit and realized that I needed to step back and regroup.
Recently, I took to Instagram to express my frustration and received an outpouring of support publicly and privately with ways to turn your day around in a flash.
Simple Ways to Turn Your Day Around
- Treat yourself to a spa / pamper day at home
- Get some sunshine and fresh air
- Express how you’re feeling to a friend who’ll listen – no judgement or advice necessary
- Write (or type) your feelings out
- Chocolate (or your favorite indulgence)
- Listen to some upbeat music

I have been having a few string of bad days myself. I am loving these ideas. I got up this morning, opened the blinds and had a cup of coffee. I hope your having a good day.
