In honor of 'sad, low, cranky' days
If you wake up feeling 'low, emotional or cranky," it's okay.
Try not to analyze, judge or wonder:
"Am I getting depressed?"
" Do I need medication?"
" Am on the wrong medication?"
Basically, some version of "is something wrong with me?"
Instead ask yourself:
"What would help me through this slump?"
Am I hungry, angry, lonely or tired?
Maybe I need to eat something. (hunger)
or take a brisk walk (to reduce symptoms of anger).
Call a friend (lonely).
Relax with a book. (Tired).
Allow your body time to recover from a cranky mood.
Often enough, if a bad mood is given love and kindness, your body bounces back quickly.
And who knows, you might end up writing a really good poem, story or song that can often stem from the low days.
Best of luck and have a wonderfully kind Tuesday.
