a list of things to do on a bad day

a list of things to do on a bad day

a. make lists, imaginary lists or angry lists. a list of things you want to do, a list of things that make you sad, or a list like this will work too. it’s a good stress reliever, trust me. i do it all the time.

b. switch off your phone, and open your windows. lock your phone in your cupboard if you feel tempted. stay away from it. running away for only a while is not that bad of a thing.

c. organise, rearrange your bookshelf. arrange them colour wise, or author wise. or my personal fave – put your favourite books first, then the others. favouritism is everywhere, anyways.

d. read an old book, a book you’ve read a hundred times already, but read it again. it’s calming, its peaceful. (suggestion: slammed by colleen hoover. colleen hoover always makes it better.)

e. go for a walk, even if it’s raining. take your mp3 with you, not your phone. look around, observe the people. think about their stories. maybe they’re doing what you’re doing too.

f. think about everything. about what made you sad, about what makes you happy. throw yourself a party, a pity party. (melanie martinez, aye) and then after you’ve drowned, look for distractions.

g. make plans. make stories. don’t make babies. i don’t know this one is pointless, don’t do this one.

h. paint (or draw) everywhere. use chalks, markers, acrylic; anything. draw on windows, paint on plates, write on doors. slather your room with emotions, bring life to it.

i. think of titles. for books, for best friends. use them as usernames, or web urls.

j. look for new recipes. a pizza in a mug? pasta in oven? jelly in a watermelon?

k. and if you’re feeling reckless, give yourself a haircut. it’ll at least give you something else to think about.

l. read about new words, or funny words. make funny lines. ‘my boob,’ is a funny line too. it’s fun saying it. do you want my boob? is it my boob? but my boob? what about my boob? no don’t touch my boob.
