Having an Eeyore day |

Hello
From the title of this post you may be wondering what on earth I'm on about. Basically I'm just having one of those days where you just feel sad for no reason, my mum calls it my Eeyore days. She knows I'm feeling a bit down, I know I'm feeling down and it takes me a while sometimes to just get back to normal. I think we all have these days at one time or another and I just wanted to share with you some of the ways I try to pick myself up when I'm having an Eeyore day.


Listen to happy music | 
This is something I find really helps, I listen to a lot of music and half of it is a bit sad. Its not sad as in talks about really bad situations but there's music I listen to that just reminds me of things or people, recently I've been listening to a lot of Sam Smith. I love his music and I cant not listen to it, the problem is that it then makes me think about certain things that make me happy for a while but then it gets me down a little. Sam Smiths music revolves around unrequited love and I think I have always drifted towards this sort of music, there's just something about it that I really connect with. I like to pop on some upbeat happy music and this really helps me feel me again, I even have a play list on spotify called Eeyore day which is my go to on days like this. I like to pop on a bit of Bruno Mars, McFly and music that reminds me of my childhood. This sound very odd but when I was little me and my sister stayed round my aunt and uncles quite a few times, we would eat ice cream and listen to the music channel and I remember us all chatting sitting on the blow up beds and the song "I'm to sexy" came on and the song "Mambo No.5" was playing. Even though these are really weird songs for me to remember but it just makes me really happy because it brings back those memories that I cherish from when me and my sister were little.


Have a film night | 
There's nothing I like better than to put on my favourite film and snuggle up in bed. I make myself a nice hot chocolate, light my candles and make a fort of pillows that I just hide away in to watch my films. I like to watch the cornetto trilogy, I have watched Hot Fuzz over 100 times now and its still one of the best films I've ever seen. I also like to watch Harry Potter, not the last few just because they are of a more dark nature, I like to watch chamber of secrets and Philosophers stone. 



Have a nice hot bubble bath | 
Some people don't like baths and prefer to shower but for me there's nothing like taking a nice soak in a hot bubble bath. I like to run myself a nice bath with the comforter bar from lush, it smells like ribeana and really helps to de-stress. I also light my Zoella candle, its smells lovely and I find that being in a dark room with a candle on is just really nice and helps me to go somewhere new in my mind and just get rid of all my little worries.



Write about it | 
You all know that whenever I feel a bit crappy I come over to my blog and write about it. Even if no one wants to read it, its still nice for me to just write about whatever is getting me down because sometimes when you can see it written down you get a better view of it and the thing you were annoyed about might seem really stupid. It really does help me, I mean this post was just going to be me going on about how I was feeling sad and now its turned into a little how to of how to pick yourself up when your feeling down. In the words of Dumbledore “Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.”. 


Text your friends | 
I always text my friends when I'm in this mood, if I haven't seen them in a while then I love to see what they have been up to and its funny how just a small conversation can cheer you up. Also sometimes you get to have a good gossip and what girl doesn't like that.


Cuddles, and lots of them | 
Sometimes all you need is a hug from the right person. My family are great for this and I find that a hug always helps. My mum and my aunt are the best for cuddles, I think they just know when a hug is needed and they are always there just in case. Also whenever we go to see my aunt, uncle and cousins, my little cousin is the best for cuddles. I think it just makes me realise that there are more important things in life that what silly little thing that going on in my head, I have a happy and healthy family and that should be enough. My family are my whole world and they always make me feel 100x better.


Just have a good cry | 
Sometimes it helps to cry. This sounds really silly but I think of something sad and I find that when they tears start rolling down my face, I realise what it is I'm actually sad about and then I cry about that for just a few minutes. After I've had a good cry I'm fine and sometimes that all you need. Therese nothing wrong with crying and everyone needs to let out there emotions once in a while.



Comfort eat |
I'm not saying this to be really unhealthy but I think it does help to have a little something nice. This doesn't even have to be unhealthy, for me I like a nice bar of galaxy or even just casserole and dumplings for dinner, my mum makes the best casserole and I think its just little things like that which can perk you up a little.


Go for a drive |
Now I don't have a car, I cant even drive but sometimes my dad will just say that we should go for a drive. We get in the car, pop on my McFly CD or his fleetwood mac CD and just drive. Me and my dad are both people of very little words sometimes but I think my dad knows I don't really like talking about how I feel, Its just nice to go out on a sunny day, wind the windows down and just drive.



I hope that might have helped some of you, it definitely helped me to write about it and I've just got a text from my dad saying that he's going to stop at Tesco's and get me a Krispy Kreme doughnut, what can I say my dad knows how to cheer me up. They fact that he would go out of his way and get stuck in traffic just to pop a smile on my face is one of the many reasons that my family are my whole world, we would all do anything to pop a smile on each other faces. Right, I'm of to listen to S Club 7 and have a bubble bath.

Bye for now xxx
