Bad days, bad weeks, heck maybe even bad months or years can happen to anyone. Scratch that, they do happen to everyone. Life throws us some curve-balls that are not easy sometimes.
We all get overwhelmed, frustrated, and tired of all we have to deal with. School, work, relationships and responsibilities can feel like a huge backpack full of pressure weighing us down.
How we deal with stress and all the responsibilities on out plate is totally up to us and our zodiac sign’s personality traits. We may all have our own self-care rituals to make ourselves feel better.
There are no two people that are the same so what makes us stressed or happy is not the same either. Maybe a way you make yourself feel better is by releasing your anger.
You may need to write a letter and unleash all your emotions. You get every thought no matter how brash it is out of that pen and onto the paper.
You may never send or even keep that letter but unleashing it all could help. Maybe you make yourself feel better by being a couch potato for the night — sometimes self-care means doing nothing.
Fuzzy socks, a warm blanket, Doritos and Sex and the City makes you feel relaxed. Maybe you need to talk to someone. Calling a friend to come over or meet for a happy hour can raise your spirits.
Whatever you do to take care of yourself and feel better is meant as a coping mechanism. It’s not easy trying to handle everything life consists of on your own. Making yourself feel better is like a battery pack or power upper in a video game. You take a dose of whatever and you feel recharged.
