Let’s face it, some days just turn out not too good. These bad days can be triggered by memories, someone’s attitude toward us or situations that are just beyond our control. On these days self-care is important.

You will have to learn how to look after yourself during your dry times because as a matter of fact, everyone else is busy doing the same. Everyone else is trying to survive or thrive, whichever stage they are in.

Self-care on your bad days will help you pull through. It is a time to cast upon yourself self-compassion (not self-pity) and love up on your being.

Usually, your “not-so-great” feeling will always wear off. It is very most likely that you just need to force yourself to get out of that zone, so yes, this list is a good start.
