Last week was a really bad week. Everything that could have gone wrong, did go wrong. By Friday all I wanted to do was curl up in my bed and stick Netflix on, but then things just got worse. It really wasn’t much fun. But we’re on to a new week now and I know the best thing to do is to put it behind me, put on a brave, positive face and get on with it. So here’s my top tips for surviving a really bad week…
Remember this too shall pass
Just remember that this time next year, these problems/mistakes/worries won’t seem anywhere near as bad as they do now. Yes they feel horrible, but they’ll pass, they’ll be forgotten and there will be something new to worry about soon.
Phone your mum
When a bad week happens, there’s only a few people that can make you feel better. And my mum is definitely one of them. In fact when I text to her to tell her what had gone wrong, she text me back with this gem: ‘Everyone makes mistakes Kerrina, look at the Queen and the government…’ She’s so right.
Drink a cocktail or ten
This is what I did on Friday night, headed out for a meal with a mate and ordered all of the cocktails. I wouldn’t usually recommend turning to the bottle, but sometimes you just need to drown your sorrows a little bit and praline flavoured cocktails (I know, amazing!) seriously do help.
I think those little furry animals have got it so right. After drinking your cocktails, spend Saturday morning in bed with coffee, chocolate, candles and your fave TV shows/books. That’s exactly what I did and it worked like a dream.
The obvious final step, just keep thinking ‘next week will be better’. Say it enough times and you’ll convince yourself, I promise.
