How to turn a bad day good

  1. When you're huddled in blankets on the couch at 7:45 at night feeling a bit sorry for yourself even though you're the one who keeps blowing people off because you're not feeling good, tell yourself that you are not going to get into this spiral again.
  2. Sign up for the gym's free weeklong pass.
  3. Decide its a little to late to go and try and sign up tonight.
  4. Don't let that stop you exercising - blow the dust off your housemate's Dance Central 3 DVD and get changed into your exercise gear.
  5. Dance like an idiot for an hour.
  6. Decide that you need to accomplish a small task, and so put on a load of laundry.
  7. Decide you still have energy and do a 10 year old Pilates for Dummies DVD that you haven't looked at for about two years.
  8. Stop being indecisive and book those flights that you have been umming and ahhing over to Adelaide this weekend.
  9. Bring the washing in before it freezes into a solid block of intertwined work shirts.
  10. Jump around the kitchen to cheesy pop songs while doing the washing up.
So that's how to cure the winter & post-holiday blues, no heater or chocolate necessary.

PS This is kinda how I feel (from megfee):

i wouldn’t trade my life for anyone else’s. because not everyone gets to have this experience. and maybe it’s lucky that i do. and others may live their lives “better–but not with my peculiar flavor and music.” this is my lot and i’ll be damned if i don’t figure it out. and frankly i’d like to see how it all plays out. which is to say, i’m invested in the story. i’m invested in the story of my own life. which, i think, is not a bad place two be at twenty-seven.

  1. Last night while doing my workout I cranked the pop tunes I have stored on my old ipod and literally was bouncing off the walls as I exercised. It's amazing what some good music can do to your mood, plus the endorphins you get afterwards :)
