STOP. Resist the urge to crawl up into a ball and instead, give one of these tried and tested terrible day hacks a go.
We promise they’ll make you feel better, even if it’s just a little.
1. Phone call to a best friend.
Yes, pick up the phone or arrange a skype call. Speaking to another human may be the last thing you want to do, but trust us, it works a treat. They’ll sympathise and comfort you if you want to talk about it, or distract you by talking about something totally different.
You’ll feel better after having a chat AND crossed something off your to-do list.
Or cider. Or tequila, or vodka if it's been a particularly bad day.
3. Put on your favourite movie.
Doesn't matter whether it's a Disney classic, crappy rom-com or a violent horror film, just sit back and enjoy the familiarity of a good film that you know isn't going to disappoint.
4. Take a bath.
Hot water, bubbles, relaxing music (you can even throw in a good book for good measure). For extra happiness, add in a brightly coloured bath bomb. Caution though - don't drop your book IN the bath - that will only make the day worse... (Post continues after gallery.)
5. Ice Cream.
The good stuff. Forget about a bowl, grab a spoon, the tub and a blanket and enjoy yourself. We particularly recommend Ben and Jerry's Half Baked for fixing ANY problem.
6. Have a cuddle.
It doesn't matter whether it's your partner, your sibling, your child (however unwilling!) or even a teddy bear.
