BUMMER DAY? HERE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS!

Beach View

Have you had a bummer day lately or perhaps today?  You can be going along just fine and BAM, something unexpected comes along and ruins it.  So what do you do?  Mope, pity party, gripe, moan, stick your head in the sand, drink heavily?

Today as I was in the grocery store and I walked through the flower department it occurred to me that just walking through the flowers and smelling the soothing fragrance made me realize some of the most simple things can have a huge impact on us.  Here are a few things that are FREE and can help you turn a bummer day into a beautiful day:

  • Stroll through a beautiful garden or just go to the grocery store and visit the floral department.
  • Go to a park and get out and go SWING!  Just go for it. 
  • Take off your shoes and take a walk in some lush grass.  Just make sure there are no sticker burrs!
  • Stop at a park and watch some children running, playing and laughing.  It is infectious.
  • Visit a chapel and just pray or meditate.  Very soothing.
  • Go home, light some candles, run a hot bath and just soak.
  • Take a brisk walk or run - nothing like some exercise to get your focus back.
  • Go visit a friend that you haven't seen in awhile.
  • Get a book and find a relaxing place to read.
  • Find a notebook and fill it up with things you are thankful for.

Taking the time to do something very simple CAN turn around even the worst day.  Give it a try.  You will feel better and hopefully you will be able to get through whatever rough patch you are in.

HAVE A SUPER DAY TODAY!

Paula - great ideas on what to do WHEN (not IF) we have a bad day!  You have outlined what all the experts say - focus on something POSITIVE instead of the NEGATIVE!  Thanks!

Tammy, there is NO way you are old enough to be a Grandmother.  Isn't it great though?  My second grandchild is on the way!  :)

The sure cure for what ails one: Get out and see something beautiful, enjoy something fun. The hour or two that takes can change your whole perspective.

I placed a bird feeder outside my office window.  Listening to them chirp, and remembering verse from the Bible about the birds of the field . . . a reminder to let go . . . Let God!!

Tammy sent me over and boy am I glad she did.  I think I need to read a book to Isabelle.

Paul,

I'm here too because of Tammy. I love your photograph. It's a winner! I love your list - how did you know those were my favorite things to do?

This is a great post and you're in good company with others who agree with how you feel.
