There’s no getting around the fact that sometimes we just wake up on the wrong side of the bed.
On these days, the world just feels a bit gloomier and everything seems to go wrong. Or maybe chronic pain or other obstacles in your life leave you feeling lost and overwhelmed.
Whatever it is that's going on in your life, these tough days make it exceptionally hard to ‘look on the bright side’ and bring yourself back to a positive mindset.
We’re here to remind you that it’s perfectly normal to have bad days from time to time.
We all have moments when we feel down... Life can be hard.
We totally get it... When the world feels overwhelming, it’s okay to have weak moments and give yourself as much time as you need to bounce back.
When dealing with pain and other health conditions, it can become even harder to overcome difficult days.
It might feel like the only thing you can do on bad days is retreat and fall into self pity, but we’re here to help you get through the rough times.
There are helpful mantras or reminders that can help put things into perspective and get you back on track towards a more positive outlook.
HERE ARE 8 REMINDERS FOR OVERCOMING TOUGH TIMES
1. Being kind to yourself is the best medicine
We are all usually too hard on ourselves. Be patient and understanding with yourself, as you would your closest loved one.
2. It's all a learning experience
There's always two ways to look at a negative situation; as a roadblock or an opportunity to learn valuable life lessons.
3. Everything can (and will change)
Rainstorms never last forever and neither will whatever problems you're facing in your life. Give it time and allow tough days to pass - Better days always lie ahead!
4. You've overcome challenges before
Take a moment to appreciate all that you've been through and overcome in the past. Likely, you've been through worse days before and will overcome this bad moment with the same strength and dignity.
5. Allow yourself to have some fun
Don't always take life so seriously. Have a little fun and allow yourself to explore and play; the same way you used to when you were a carefree child!
6. There's always something to be thankful for
Even on our worst days, we all have something to be thankful for. There is always someone who has it worse than you and would gladly trade places to take your 'bad day' instead.
7. Not getting what you want can be a blessing
Often a blessing in disguise, sometimes things don't work out for a good reason. Have faith that even if things are not going your way right now, they are leading you towards something better.
8. Other people's negativity isn't worth your time or energy
We're often guilty of allowing ourselves to be drained and dragged down by other people's negative energy. Try to consciously set healthy boundaries and don't get sucked into negative situations that can impact your mental health and well-being.
