Bad Mood

5 Ways to Deal with a Bad Day

No matter who you are or what you have, you will have to go through some bad days. A piece of bad news, a problem that recently happened to you, or just a day where things went wrong are among the common causes of bad days.

So how can you deal with a bad day? I would be lying if I told you that there is a quick formula to make your day marvelous, but the good news I have is that there are few things that you can do to improve your mood almost instantly.

Before you do any of those things, you need to understand something about life. While bad days are unavoidable, they do come to an end. Both happiness and sadness don’t last forever, and just like happy days end, bad ones do end too. In other words, it’s not the end of the world.

If you understood that statement well and made sure it became a belief, then bad days won’t affect you like they used to.

Five ways to deal with a bad day

  1. Ask positive what if questions: I am pretty sure you asked yourself hundreds of negative what if questions like “what if I couldn’t pay that bill” or “what if my problems were never solved.” Why did you do that so many times and never gave positive what-if questions a try? It’s not fair to think all the time negatively! What if your problems were solved? What if something good happened? what if tomorrow was a better day?
  2. Spend some time worrying: Sounds like weird advice, right? Well, the reason worrying annoys us is that it comes uninvited. You find yourself thinking negatively in times where you want to work or do other tasks. Now, if you freed some quality time to worry about possible solutions, you will feel way better. In other words, take a break and think of solutions.
  3. Remember the past bad days: Want to convince your subconscious mind that tomorrow can be better? Can you remember any day where you felt terrible, then things changed? How many times you felt so bad, then nothing wrong happened? Remembering those days will help you believe that there is a way to
  4. avoid stress: When you have a bad day, you need to avoid all kinds of external pressure and negativity. If you can take the day off, do it. Relax or do something that you love on that day. You don’t want stress to add to your bad mood or make you feel worse
  5. Think of the future: What could happen one month from now? Would that even matter? Won’t you forget it? Won’t you feel better? Then why believe that the pain will last? it will fade away as the days pass by, so just relax and accept it

Bonus tip

The previous tips won’t apply if you face a long-term problem that you are not trying to solve. The only way to end the pain that comes from long-term problems is to solve them or start on the solution.

Do you need to make a significant change in your life? is there a specific, meaningful action that you must take? Unless you deal with those long-term problems, the risk of having a bad day will be much higher.

I said earlier that one of the leading causes of bad moods is unsolved problems that you remember all of a sudden. The more unsolved problems you have, the more likely you will remember one of them and have a bad day.
