Everyone has rough weeks; those weeks where it seems like nothing is going right and you’re really stressed out and it looks like the whole world is against you. Don’t worry, the world isn’t against you, even the best of us have these kinds of weeks. You just have to find ways to help you stay positive and get through these rough days. If you don’t know how, check out the tips we’ve given below
1. Take A Mental Health Day
Sometimes, all that’s going to get us through a week is taking a mental health day. This is a day where you call in sick, shut off your phone and email, and do whatever makes you happy. Days like this can give us an extra recharge of power to boost us to through the week.
2. Get Lots of Sleep
Getting a good night’s sleep decreases your stress levels. When you’re already having a hard week, the last thing you want to add to the mix is sleep deprivation. Treat yourself to at least 8 hours of sleep – 9 or 10 if you can.
3. Plan Something Fun for the Weekend
Take your mind off of a stressful week at work by planning a virtual dinner party, a facetime call with a special friend, a date, or whatever you know will make you excited. When things get difficult, just think about the fun and comfort you can find in your weekend activity. Just don’t spend too much time planning and falling behind at work!
4.Indulge in Comfort Food
This might be a good week to try out that “Off the Menu” recipe you’ve been wanting to try for the longest time. Even binge eating your favorite snacks is allowed when you’re having a rough week. Just remember not to indulge too much– neither a stomach ache nor acid indigestion is a helpful addition to an already difficult week!
5. Know that it will pass
Know that every week won’t be a bad week. If there are concrete reasons why this one sucked, try to figure out what they were, and how you can overcome them. If you are continually having bad weeks, it may be time to look for another job!
