Open this if you’re having a crappy day.

We’ve all been there. Sometimes, for one reason or another, we just feel like skipping a day or two. I hope these little bits of the Internet bring you some comfort. So, take some time off and check out these links. And remember, this too shall pass.

Learn about how to be your own friend:

These are 4 minutes worth your while on any day. The person with whom we find it most difficult to be understanding is, surprisingly, ourselves. Watch this and take good note of its message.

Listen to some soothing music:

Heroboard music is a great music channel. Play some of these tracks to do some deep breathing or light stretching and get some of the edge off. This is a particular nice playlist to unwind.

Read good news:

News can get anyone down. If you’re having a particular crappy day I recommend you read some good news. The Good News Network is a nice reminder that there actually are kind things going on in the world. Who knows? you might even end up feeling inspired.

Start a new book:

Sometimes a lousy day just calls for a good book we can lose ourselves into. This is a good list of suggestions with many inspiring titles to choose from.

Move:

You don’t have to do an extreme workout (if you don’t want to). Go for a slow walk, stretch or dance around in your room instead. Physical movement has been proven to fight feelings of anxiety and frustration. Why not just give it a try?

I sincerely hope you enjoy these links, and if you know someone who could find it useful, please share!

 

A man on a thousand mile walk has to forget his goal and say to himself every morning, ‘Today I’m going to cover twenty-five miles and then rest up and sleep.
