TIDBITS TO TURN
A BAD DAY AROUND
Listen to music that you like. This can alter your mood and even alleviate depression. Make a ‘Feel Better’ playlist that includes positive, uplifting songs that you can sing along to.
Call a friend who won’t allow you to gripe about your problems for more than a few minutes before turning the conversation to something far more interesting than what’s making you sad.
We often overlook human touch as a touch as form of therapy. The next time you’re feeling a little wonky, reach out to your partner, a close friend, or a family member and share a quick embrace.
Deep breathing has a natural stress-reducing quality that can quell the rush of hormones that a bad mood brings about. So take a few moments to close your eyes and breathe deep!
