How can I deal with a bad day?

Ms. Ashley Koff, RD
Nutrition & Dietetics
Having a really bad day? End it! Sometimes we can't fix a day that's gone really bad. The sooner you can end it, the sooner you can leave it behind and start afresh again. And if it's too early to end it, then try a nap to reboot yourself -- and your day. Be careful how your bad day is affecting your decisions (e.g., what you eat, how you behave in front of your children, and so on). Don't trade one bandage for another, such as soothing your bad day with an outrageous shopping spree that sinks your bank account. Continue to make informed decisions that feed your energy tank so you don't feel like a victim but you also don't feel deprived. Don't be afraid to cry! If you feel like it, it's a great option.
