I guess I’m not the only one with off-days now and then, but you just have to accept it when they’re there and wait for it to be over...unless you decide to do something about it and turn it into something good, by the end of the day!
Actually I’ve had a few off-days, but somehow they both turned out to be okay after all! Today I had a serious off-day, you know, when you feel so sorry for yourself and you just want to go home to sleep and eat junk food or something very bad, like cheese...🙄 I felt so nausea at work, completely tired and I felt that I was about to get the flu. After work I was going to a meeting (3 hours long AND an hour away from home) and I hated that I wasn’t feeling well, like I could cry about it. BUT I managed to suck it up and fake a smile. The meeting turned out to be great, actually, and now I feel much better! It kind of gave me energy to feel that the meeting was a success.
Yesterday was a bad day for me as well (wtf?). I was so tired from the weekend and the Monday blues was hard on me.. Somehow I convinced myself to get my ass to the gym (I kept telling myself that a one hour workout would be ok, even if I only walked on the treadmill). I ended up working out an hour and a half, and afterwards it felt SO great! I still had time to cuddle up on the couch (after a looong, warm shower) with a blanket and watch a movie and relax before going to bed. My way of taking care of myself and gaining new energy, whenever I’m having an off-day!
It’s okay to have bad days, but it always feels great when you are able to get yourself back up on that horse again👌🏼Sometimes it takes a few days to get the feeling of being “back in the game” again, and sometimes I just allow myself a day or two on the couch (after work of course🙄) without going to the gym, working out or whatever the plan was, but the older I get, the more I know what works for me and what doesn’t.
Allow yourself an off-day once in a while, I think it’s like when you were bored as a child some day and your mom would be like “it’s healthy to be bored once in a while!” (And you were like “duuuuuh... no!”)
