I wanted to write a blog and share with you how i get through a bad day, because we all have them. Some days i get up and have the most biggest motivation drive and positive attitude, others days i wake up up and cant function enough to get out of day. Feeling like i have a massive weight on my shoulders and my life is awful. Thats not lazy thats realising you need to find your inner drive to get you motivated.
One biggest tip I’m going to give you is SMILE from the moment you wake up. Even if you don’t feel like it, just give it a little go. A smile makes you beautiful. I always remember a saying i was told once, keep your head high and your smile higher. That saying has helped me through life.
When your having a bad day try to stay focused on yourself. Push yourself to get up because normally i feel lot better once I’m up and getting through the day but i know its hard to get up at first. Tell yourself that you can do this and your going to have a good day. When you wake up try and remember to be grateful for everything you have in life that sometimes helps me.
Once your up and started your day put on that smile, get yourself organised for the day so you don’t have a stress about anything. Split your day up to small steps and focus on the most important subject of the day. I write a to do list then prioritise what to do first (other subjects can wait).
Get yourself away from negative situations whether that means, taking yourself away from negative people or if you cant do that, think of one positive out of the person or situation. If you prefer to be sociable still this is awesome but interact with enthusiastic people so their positive vibes follows you. We all know if we go see a friend and they have lots of motivation and smiling you come away having the same vibe! If you see a friend and they are miserable then you come away feeling drained and low.
I find when I’m feeling tired, low and stressed i put some motivational music on, watch videos or even read a motivational book. You can find these items on amazon! Click here.
If you work in a office my advise would be to shut the door, turn phone on silent if you can and concrete. Have time for yourself so your not getting stressed or being interrupted. If your work is like mine (care assistant) there are lot of us working at once and it can be hard sometimes. We don’t always agree on things, we all a very strong minded people. So sometimes to get work done its a good idea to turn a negative upside down and make a positive. Competitions are the best! Whoever does that first has to buy the other a chocolate bar! If your a chocolate lover like me this will motivate you!
I always head towards a goal in life, whether this is to do with your personal life, work life, education. The goal i set is my personal social life, due to being diagnosed i now have goals i have set and will try to do. Could be something you want to do but never pushed yourself, what you want to be doing in 5 years time, a dream career to push yourself too? (Thats my dream) in which I’m now trying to achieve. If you fail its ok, failure in my eyes are good because you learn to be strong and pick yourself back up again. With failure i always get feedback then you can see that you need to pick up on.
All thoughts that are negative going around in your head, write them all down in note form on a piece of paper. Once you’ve done this screw the paper up in a ball, close your eyes and imagine your putting the paper in a suitcase – close the lock on the suitcase and put the suitcase in the loft. You can then open your eyes a put the paper in the bin. This really helped me and i still do it at 24 years old. I imagine to put it in a suit case because i feel some bad thoughts i will never be able to get out of my head but at least if i can imagine they are locked away then they will stay at the back of my head. So give that ago!
Anyway i think I’ve gone on enough now but always remember!
Be grateful, Be kind to yourself, Be fun and SMILE!
