Healthy Ways to Turn a Bad Day Into a Good One

Every once in a while, a day will pass that is seemingly the antithesis of everything good. I will wake up far too late, I will realize that we are out of coffee, I will have forgotten to do laundry the day before, my dog will have chewed a hole in my shoes, my car will be out of gas despite my lateness, there will be an astounding amount of traffic, and I will inevitably spill my to-go coffee all over myself. These days happen, and yes, they're a bummer. However, even if nothing is going as planned and it seems as though you are the butt of some nasty joke, there are ways to end these days on a positive note. Here's how:

#1: Think about a postive impact that you made on sombody else's day. 

Even though your own day was like something out of a sit com (and not in a good way), chances are that you made somebody else's day just a tad bit brighter. Maybe you sent a friend a "thinking about you on this day from hell" text and made her smile, or perhaps you helped a coworker with a project that he was having a difficult time completing. Whatever it was, despite it's insignificance to you, it probably made someone else happy. 

#2: Think about the one good thing that did happen, even if it would have otherwise been forgettable. 

On our worst days, it's important to think about each good thing that happened, despite how few and far between those instances were. Think about the loving cuddles that you received from your pup before you left for work, the awesome parking spot that you scored at the coffee shop, or the compliment that you received on your skirt from a coworker. Being grateful, even for the seemingly insignificant moments, can drastically change your mood for the better. 

#3: Think about the bigger picture. 

Even though it's hard not to be self-consumed after a terrible day (we all need to lick our wounds from time to time), it can be beneficial to think about the world at large for a moment in order to put things into perspective. There are random acts of kindness happening all over the globe at any particular moment in time. And, yes, with the good comes the bad, but, for the most part, people are inherently good. And that's pretty cool to think about, right?
