five ways to have a better day

I think we can all agree this last week has been a little rough. Maybe your candidate lost last week, or your team was crushed this weekend, or you broke up with your boyfriend two weeks ago and he got a puppy the next day. Oh just me on that last one? Or maybe you're just having a serious case of the Mondays. Regardless of the reason I think we're all in need of a little good ole fashion cheer up. Once you've decided you've had your share of pity party shower cries here are five ways to have a better day!

1. Buy yourself something - It seems silly but getting a gift, even from yourself, is sure to put a smile on your face. Back in college when I was having a tough week I'd go to our local pharmacy grab a cup of white chocolate with brownie bites TCBY and a bottle of my favorite nail polish. These fun fuzzy socks, this pineapple candle, or the best gummy bears ever are all great inexpensive choices to use as a treat yourself.

2. Call your mom - Maybe it's just me, but talking to my mom always makes me feel like I'm 8 years old again and all my problems in the world are gone. It doesn't have to be your mom, maybe it's a sister or your old college roommate, but everyone has that person who helps make them feel at ease.

3. Go outside - I don't know how it is where you live, but it simply beautiful here in Vail. We're having unseasonably warm weather, which isn't great for the ski forecast, but makes any time outside the best time of day. Fresh air always does me good.

4. Watch a favorite movie - Or go on a Netflix binge watch session. The point is just to get your mind off of whatever is making you sad or anxious. Watching someone's fictional life always helps take my mind off of my actual life.

5. Take a nap - My motto in life is when in doubt, take a nap.

What is your favorite way to have a better day?

  1. I agree! When I'm feeling down I like to just head to a starbucks and get myself a coffee! It helps that we now have RED CUPS too! :)


I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
