Pick it up | Your Anti-bad day Playlist

Even when you’re playing all your cards right; even when you have somehow found a balance of working and a social life; even when you find a coupon for two free Doritos locos tacos on the ground; you are still 100% capable of having a bad day, or even a streak of them.

Yesterday was my bad day. Even though life is crazy awesome right now and even though I couldn’t be feeling more thrilled about things to come, I had a day yesterday where I felt like my dreams could be oh-so-easily crumpled like a used gum wrapper and alley-ooped into the trashcan. I felt like a flat tire whose positivity had leaked out.

I needed a pick-me-up and I needed it quick so I did what I do best: surfed the internet. I found images that made me happy and focused on why they made me happy, and then vowed to employ bits them in my life this week. Here’s a few of the images that got me on the road to recovery:

So, what are some things you can do to get out from under your self deprecating (d)rain cloud? Here are some ideas:

  1. Exercise. Much to my surprise, I’ve transformed into a person who has decided going to the gym is a good way to push myself of out whatever funk I’ve found myself in. After a good while of sulking in the darkness of my room I reluctantly changed into my Nikes and made my way the squat rack. Spoiler alert: I’m glad I did. Endorphins are a hell of a thing!
  2. Laugh. Just LAUGH. Whatever it takes.
  3. Gain and retain an understanding that even Beyonce has bad days.
  4. Convince yourself about how much you rule (I know it sounds cheesy, but it works).
  5. Speaking of cheesy…pizza? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  6. Listen to this playlist (and dance, no matter how badly) for at least 15 minutes:
