You ever woken up feeling crappy, Like the worlds out to get you. Or just woken up with a bloody cold and despite how down or low you feel you have to get up and face the day.
Well I have had a couple of what I like to call ‘the dog dayz’. I’d wake up feeling under the weather and that nothing could possibly go right. And during these days I realize that I might wake up on the wrong side of the bed but i don’t have to stay on the wrong side of my day, so I take the bull by the horns and try to liven my day. Way I see it, if I fail to make me happy, no one would. So heres what i do:-
Mu$ic- I just put on my favorite tracks and let them run while am doing my morning routine. At least one of the songs will pop into my head in the course of the day and keep me company. Just so you know, when am busy singing my heart out in class don’t think I have gone loco ( this coming from a person who doesn’t have a musical bone in her body)
Writing- a safe haven where I spew my guts. I have notes lying everywhere, in books, in small pieces of paper stacked in my wallet. Anytime the craving strikes, anytime, anyhow, am sure to indulge myself.
Cup of coffee- I have tried to use coffee to keep me awake. Problem is, it never did help. In fact thats the day I would sleep like a log. So my coffee is used to start my day not to extend my night. The strong aromatic brew clears my senses or is it my head.
Walks- a long leisurely walk does it for me all the time. Just me and the trees, me and the wind or me and the starry sky if its at night.
It also serves as my alone time. Time to reflect on who I am and just get to know me better. One thing I know is that when you are feeling crappy, avoid taking it out on someone, why not take yourself away from people for a while.
I may have a few more rituals to turn my rainy dayz into sunny dayz but these three always work.
Now to making that cup of coffee…!
