Itís a fact of life, we all have good days and bad days and sometimes the ride from one extreme to the other is enough to give you whiplash. But if youíre looking out at grey skies and moping conditions, you do have a choice in what to do about it.

Fake Your Way Out of It

Itís amazing how you can trick your mind into thinking youíre happy and doing just fine. If you plaster a big fake smile on your face and force yourself to use a cheerful happy tone, youíll eventually find that you are actually smiling and sounding better legitimately. Your faking doesnít just have to happen on the outside. You can force yourself to think happy thoughts as well or play the little mind tricks of finding things that could be way worse than what weíre looking at to make ourselves feel better. ďSure he might have dumped me and starting dating the girl I hate most in the world, but it would be so much worse if he tried to date both of us at the same time and everyone knew but me. At least now, everyone knows he looks like a jerk.Ē

Blow It Off

Your body and mind have limits as to how much they can handle in a given day. When youíve reached your limit, youíre often faced with a few possibilities. You might curl up in bed and sleep it all away to start the next day fresh, or you might start leaking out the negative stuff in your tone, your words and your attitude. Rather than leaking out ugly stuff, blow it all out at once. Go into a fine rage and dance it out, or go mental on your unsuspecting pillows and punch them into submission. Race around the block to rev up your heart rate and sweat out the nasty or put on the most horribly depressing movie youíve ever seen and just sob your little heart out. No matter how you do it, so long as the bad stuff is getting out of your system, youíll feel tons better afterward.

Indulge It

There are days that we just wait for. The weather is perfect Ė drizzly, raining, cold, foggy. The mood is perfect Ė depressed, morose, sad, disjointed. And when you have a recipe like that, itís sometimes best to just indulge your misery for the day. Granted, if youíre indulging misery every other day you need to speak with a trusted adult, but if once every six months you just want to crawl into bed with a gallon of ice cream and sad novels and simply feel sorry for yourself, by all means, do it. Taking a self-pity day can have plenty of positives for you as well. Not only do you get to let all of those inner demons loose for a time, you are also going to take a day for rest and relaxation, something that we donít do often enough in our crazy, over-scheduled lives.
