I’ve had a bit of blah day, you know the kind of day where you feel dreary, and even though you try to shake yourself out of it nothing works.
I find when I have these kinds of days, sometimes I just need to indulge the moment, cuddle up on the sofa with an old favourite DVD and some ice-cream, and make the blah work for me.
If you hadn’t already guessed I have a teen movie thing, and my favourite movies for days like today, are Ten things I hate About You, and Clueless. If I feel I need some longer term therapy I’ll settle down with the BBC version of North and South (4 hours) or Pride and Prejudice (6 hours).
However as I am now a mum, I no longer have the freedom to just indulge in a couple of hours (or even 6) of TV. So when my daughter was born I wrote my sanity list, ideas to keep me sane on a blah day, and here it is in no particular order:
- call/hang out with my husband
- go for a walk / get outside
- call/hang out with family
- call/hang out with my best friends
- me time
It’s not an exhaustive list, but it’s some of the things that work for me, and I keep it on the fridge where I can see it. How about you, what helps you get through a blah day?
