We all have days where we’d rather curl up and stay in bed, or rewind the clock and start the day all over again.
Sometimes things can happen that are unexpected or beyond our control, which can affect our mental and emotional state. The more things we have in our toolbox to deal with bad days, the quicker we will be able to change how we are feeling and start experiencing joy again.
In recent times, it seems like the world is going through a period of high levels of pessimism, negativity and a lack of acceptance or tolerance for different values, beliefs, rights or points of views. On news or social media, there are stories of terrorism, gun violence, domestic violence, misuse of political power, etc., and it can be easy to feel angry, upset, sad or depressed.
While we may not always be able to impact things going on in the world, we’re always in control of our attitude and how we choose to respond to events happening in our lives. One of the best things we can do is to try and cheer ourselves up and experience joy in any given moment.
