5 Things to Do When You are Having a Bad Week

Last week was terrible. I did my best at work, but with the other member of my team away, and everyone being so busy due to the season, I didn't get it all done. I hate doing this, and I find it quite stressful at the best of times. I also had a car crash. My first ever one, and I hit a deer on the way home from work. It was petrifying, and my car is now off the road and costing me £500 to repair. Thankfully, the deer was OK, and I wasn't hurt - but still, it was pretty rubbish. HOWEVER, despite having a terrible week, I got through it, and I feel so much better for that.

Here's a few things I like to do when I'm having a bad week.

One/ Have a super early night - One night last week, I came home, had dinner and got into bed at around 8 o clock. I was too tired to even consider reading my book, and eventually fell asleep. Although I was still tired the next day (always so so tired!), I felt so much better for just giving in and giving my body the rest it clearly needed.

Two/ Have a bubble bath - I am a Lush addict, and there truly is nothing better than getting warmed up in a Lush bath. My bath bomb of choice was Intergalactic, and I truly felt like a space princess. The water was such a dark blue, and was sooo incredibly sparkly which is right up my street. There is nothing more relaxing than just lying in a sparkly bath.

Three/ Take some time out to relax with friends and family - On two occasions I went out to the cinema last week. I saw "He Named Me Malala" and "The Hunger Games, Mockingjay Part 2". I love going to the cinema, and find it really relaxing. I'm definitely pleased that I took the time out to go and see both of them.

Four/ Communicate - Communicate that you are finding things tough, things are always a lot better when you have people rooting for you and encouraging you to keep going and to get things right. I find this incredibly helpful, and I'm lucky to have supportive people in all walks of my life.

Five/ Start your day with a cuppa - I always always start my day with a cup of tea. It's my favourite, and I love having a hot drink to start the day and get me going. Continuing with these things during tough weeks will always make me feel better, and know that the challenges won't always be there.

Having a tough week is always rubbish, but these are just a few things that I find helps me get through the week no matter what has happened. Finding way to cope with having a bad day or week has helped me so much, I always feel a sense of achievement knowing I got through it.
