The Upside to Feeling Down – The Good Side to Feeling Bad

its-ok-to-not-be-ok

Feeling a little down in the dumps, and overwhelmed?

Relax, it’s totally ok…and to have these feelings once in a while, is actually a good thing! Here’s why:

-It shows that you’re human, with real feelings

-It gives you time to reflect and grow, by thinking about your problems

-When you are a little down and overwhelmed, it’s a good time to reach out to your close friends and ask for support.

Now, of course it’s not a good thing to be feeling rotten all the time, but if you get a little down once in a few weeks or so, perhaps, don’t be so hard on yourself, it’s perfectly fine to feel a little ‘yuck’, – but use it as some time to reflect upon your problem, and how you can overcome it…use this time as good ‘you time’ – go for a walk, do some meditation, listen to your favorite music, watch a good comedy..talk to your friends…just do what feels good…sometimes it just might be having some alone time, and even having a good old cry if you need to. Just know that it’s perfectly OK…we all have these days from time to time!
