Get Rid of the Funk and Recharge Your Day!

Do you ever have those days where you are just feeling in a funk?  It’s like from the minute you get up, you just kind of feel blah?  I think we all have those days for sure!  The question is, do you let yourself get caught up in the blah or do you take charge and do something about it?  I say – do something about it!!

9 Ways to Recharge Your Day
1. Have a dance party.  Yes, this may sound silly, but turn on your favorite tunes and “shake your tail-feather”.  After about 2-3 songs, you will be feeling good, energized and ready to tackle the day.
2.  Smile.  I know, this is super-cheesy, but it really works.
3.  Look at pictures of your loved ones.  
4.  Either pick up a copy of “The Book of Awesome” or go to  My Mom just sent me this book and it is a great reminder of the little things that happen in our day to day lives that bring us happiness.  Read a few of these reminders each day and it will start to put a smile on your face.
5. Laugh out loud.
6.  Go outside.  Sometimes just breathing in some fresh air and taking in a little nature can turn a day around.
7.  Make a cup of tea.  There’s something so soothing and calming to me about sipping a hot cup of tea.  It causes the world to slow down for a little while and gives you a warm, cozy feeling inside.
8.  Count your blessings.  Take a minute to think of all of the things you have to be thankful for – my guess is, there’s probably A LOT.
9.  Make a list.  There’s something so satisfying about crossing “to do” items off of a list.
So let’s take the “blah” out of our day and make it a great one!  Happy Tuesday!

  1. The dance party is an awesome suggestion! My favorite is to dance and shake while my husband sings one of his silly made up songs. The radio works too just in case he’s the cause of the bad day or not around when I’m having one.

    One more suggestion is to dress up. I love doing that if I know it’s going to be a hectic day. If you look your best, you feel a little better too!

  2. These are such awesome suggestions! I totally agree with the laughing one it always turns my day around!
