bad mental health days and how we can cope with them

I know you have/had/having those bad mental health days, where you don’t want to get out of bed, eat anything, and sleep for 24 hours.

In fact, I’m experiencing one today. But I’ve decided to beat it by coming online and typing this post out.

I’m keeping most of these things to myself. I’m not usually  someone who would text her best friend and be like ” I feel so bad, do you want to come over and make me some tea?”.

I wish I was someone like that, but instead, I keep things to myself and then I start to feel even worse. Now, I’ll just share the tips that turn my ”bad mental health” day into a slightly better one. Even though I didn’t want to get out of bed,I asked my dad if he could prepare my lunch.
After my lunch, I started to feel positive and fueled my energy.

Okay… Here are my tips!

1) Do something or participate in an activity that makes you happy.

I know just even turning on your TV to watch your fave series will feel like too much work. But honestly, it will make you feel better. I turned on the TV and there it was: Doctor Who. And the episodes of 11! With one of my fave companions, Clara! Just seeing them made my day.

2) Tell someone about how you feel.

Whether it’s your boyfriend, your girlfriend, or your best friend, just pick up your phone and text them about how you feel. I know you don’t want to make them upset but they have a right to know how you’re feeling if you want their help and advice.

3) Tidy around.

This makes me super  energetic and I feel so productive after just washing dishes and doing some laundry while blasting music. This will make the blues go away.

4) Put on some music.

Blasting music from your mini jukebox or your headphones will make you FEEL BETTER. šŸ™‚ I would advise you to find playlists from Spotify, Youtube etc. that have happy and energetic songs. Dance the blues away!

5)  Watch funny videos.

Open your laptop and start typing funny things. Whether it’s funny cat/dog videos or old Vines, you’ll start to forget how miserable you feel at that moment.

So, guys, these are all of the tips that I can think of for now! I love typing out stuff like this and I’m really hoping that these tips and this post will help many of you. Let me know how you’re getting on.
