    Horrible day at work... how do you deal w/it

    Hello!

    I had a horrible day at work and felt like a chicken with my head cut off running around in a million directions!

    How do you deal with a rough day?

    I personally need to go somewhere quiet to decompress and don’t listen to music on the way home.

    Thanks

    Hey Kendall!

    I definitely have those days.

    I'm actually the opposite, I listen to music cranked up on the way home! I usually sing along as well to relieve stress. It's nice because I drive home by myself, and even just driving helps calm me down when I'm upset.

    Other than that, I usually take a hot shower, make myself something nice to eat, and then curl up in bed afterwards.

    Hey Kendall!

    This may sound strange, but a bad day is always fixed with a chocolate dipped ice cream cone from Dairy Queen.

    Sugar is my fix, especially ice cream! It usually lifts me up when work gets me down!

    Have a great day!

    Hey Kendall,

    I've worked in a toxic environment before, so I can relate!

    The best thing that worked for me when I have had horrible work days was exercising immediately after work at the gym. The exercise naturally ups your endorphins and positive people sometimes can make a world of difference!

    I hope you got through it and you're feeling better!

    I think it's helpful to know that nothing lasts forever, and in knowing this, just know that this day will pass, as well as other bad days, and hopefully you'll have more days that are happy and enjoyable for you. My mom gives me that advice when I'm really stressed out, so hopefully it works for you as well. Have a good day!

    Hey Kendall,

    I'm actually the opposite. When I've had a stressful or hectic day, I have to listen to music immediately. I'm lucky that at my job I can listen to music all day so it kinda keeps me "in my head" and lets my focus and get a lot done.

    Decompressing is always the way to go, or doing something super relaxing after a hectic day or your body will become super stressed. Exercise also helps me release some stress, so go for a run or walk to clear your head and I bet you'll see that that helps too!
