Everyone knows what it’s like to have one of those days, don’t they? Those days where you just don’t feel one hundred percent. You’re a bit fragile, a bit worn out, and all you want to do is crawl back into bed for a bit. Firstly, don’t worry! You’re not alone, and this is a very normal feeling. It can be for a number of reasons, from overworking yourself to problems in your personal life, or even just feeling slightly under the weather. Thankfully, there are also small, low-effort ways you can perk yourself up quickly and easily, meaning the day doesn’t have to be a total write-off if you don’t want it to be.
It might seem obvious, but sometimes the answer to helping yourself out of a slump is simply to give yourself a little treat to kickstart your day. This can be different for different people; it’s whatever gives your heart a little leap. It could be your favorite takeaway lunch, or a specialty coffee on your way to work, or even letting yourself indulge in Netflix for an hour before you get started. What will make everything feel just a little bit better? THere’s no shame in admitting when you need a pick-me-up, and proactively going out there and doing the thing that will help. In fact, this is a great way to practice self-knowledge, and being kind to yourself is always the first step!
It cannot be understated how important water is to our daily lives. If you’re feeling under the weather, and you don’t know why, rehydration could be the answer. Being dehydrated leads to a loss of energy, increased appetite, and even depression, so it’s incredibly important to keep your body well supplied with H2O. Fixing this problem can have immediate benefits, increasing your energy and making sure you’re ready to take on the day.
For many people exercise can be a daunting prospect – but don’t worry! This doesn’t have to be a huge session at the gym, a run, or even a star jump if you don’t want it to be. However, simply moving your body is a great way to overcome depression and fatigue, however simplistic that might sound. How about trying ten minutes of yoga? Be gentle with your body, especially if you’re not feeling well, but encourage it to wake up and stretch away all your problems. You never know, you might find that after five minutes you’re ready for more…
Sometimes, being confronted with everything you have to do in a day, or a week, or a month, can feel incredibly overwhelming. This might lead you to feelings of fatigue and anxiety. Don’t attempt to deal with every job at once – instead, pick the smallest item on your list and tackle that first. Completing it can give you a great sense of accomplishment, helping you to energize yourself for the next task. Approaching problems one at a time is always the best solution, and starting small is a great way to begin.
