Beating the Blues…

This week on Nitty Gritty Romance, we’re talking about what to do when you’ve had a bad day — and it seems there are nearly as many different coping strategies as there are people.

But one thing is universal, we all have them. So what can you do to feel better?

If I’m blue or feeling stuck, there’s no doubt I head to yoga class. Yoga can clear your mind and heal your body.

But there are other times…times when you just need to wallow in it.

At the end of a long, not-my-best, flat-out lousy day, I turn to comfort. I chow down on scrambled eggs and drink tea with creamer and LOTS of honey… heck, I buy organic, raw honey at Costco, three bottles at a time just for this reason!

Then I take my Vitamin C packet filled with B vitamins, turn off my computer and turn away from work, pile in bed in comfy pajamas—hopefully with my husband—and watch something to take my mind off it all. (Lovvvveeee Jessica Jones on Netflix!)

Then I go to sleep as soon as possible, and the next morning, I’m better. No, I haven’t fixed anything, but I’ve recharged. And sometimes in our over-stressed, over-scheduled lives that’s what we really need–a moment to reset and recharge.

So, how about you? What do you do to feel better? Curl up with a hot romance? Rock climb? Ice cream? Let us know! Maybe your coping skills can help all of us have a little bit brighter day…
