5 Ways to Help You Get Through a Long Day

Got Mondayitis? Feel like your day is not worth getting out of bed? It happens to us all. Sometimes the motivation to do ANYTHING just isn’t there. Solving this problem however is a lot easier than it seems. All it takes is some motivation and a little positivity that today isn’t going to be the end of the world.

Here are 5 things you can remember to help get you through the day.

1. It’s always a great day to achieve something. Maybe it’s a beautiful day outside and you feel like getting something done or your stuck at home for some reason and don’t want to be lazy, achievement is always a good way to pass the time. Read a book, clean your room or maybe even start that puzzle you’ve always wanted to get to but haven’t really had the time. The satisfaction of getting something done is always a great way to brighten your day.

2. Today is not yesterday. For any number of reasons a day can end badly, but that doesn’t mean the next day has to be as bad. A new day like a new canvas is a fresh start. An opportunity to do something new and exciting. Don’t let yesterday’s negativity get you down. Go out into the world and live everyday the best way you can.

3. The weekend is coming. It’s called the weekEND for a reason. It brings all the stresses of a long week to a close and brings about a new week and what ever it may hold for you. School, work or a long day in the house, the weekend is a great way to unwind and it IS coming. Just push through the week and get to the weekend. You’ll feel a lot better when it arrives.

4. Maybe you need a lazy day. Life can be stressful. With work to do and expectations to meet, sometimes life gets so crazy we feel like we’re going to snap. Sometimes we just need to take a lazy day. Turn the dial back a little and work at half pace. Stopping altogether can become counter productive, but if we take a moment to slow down it gives us an chance to catch our breath and refuel for the days ahead.

5. We’re only human. Working hard and striving to do our best is always a good thing to do, but if you’re working so hard that you don’t want to get up and keep going the day after what’s the point? There is no shame in doing the best you can do. Sleep in a little then get up. Watch some tv and then do work. Have ice cream for lunch. There is no reason why we can’t have fun whilst going about our day.


“Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.” ~ Kevyn Aucoin
