Loving your job, and what you do must be the greatest feeling ever. However, that doesn’t mean you won’t have days that are harder than others. At some point in your life, you will have a bad day at work, it’s only natural. And if it is a really bad day, it can affect not only your wellbeing but your surroundings, but it doesn’t have to be like that. All you need is some effective tips to pick yourself back up.
After a bad day at work, a usual feeling is to just be by yourself at home. This can be due to an overwhelming, stressed, or upset feeling that causes you to just want to stay in bed after work. Believe it or not, but going outside and getting some fresh air for even 10 minutes is one of the best things to do to give yourself a mood boost, and has proven to help you feel more positive and less stressed. Go enjoy nature!
Another good way to recover from a sh*tty day at work is to get some exercise in. Get your body moving, and give your mind something else to focus on, rather than your day. Your body also releases various mood boosters when you’re physically active, such as dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins. Even a small workout can help you forget your bad day. Get moving!
Since a pandemic took over our lives, most of our jobs have shifted online meaning we spend a lot more time staring at a screen. After a bad day at work, the last thing you need is technology. It is proven that our well-being experiences less happiness for those that are on their screen more. A good tip is to disconnect from your phone as soon as you get home from a bad day, and spend some “me time.” Blue light (emitted from screens) also limits melatonin production, which is a hormone required to sleep, getting a good nights rest is key for having a better day.
A bad day at work will obviously put you in a bad mood, and it is normal to feel frustrated and upset when things don’t go your way. A good way to let your brain think positively is to have the control you have. It has been proven that smiling can help with your mood, and improve your perspective at work. Not to necessarily fake being happy, but to try and see the positive of every situation is definitely a mood booster.
When you’re having a bad day, it sometimes feels like the bad never-ends and it turns into a daily issue, and it may be time to hit the reset button. It can take effect on yourself mentally, by always having to expect the next unfortunate circumstances. A change in routine may be what you need to get back on the right track, sometimes breaking out of a daily pattern is useful and gives you the chance to restart and have a positive outlook on things.
