how to beat an off day

How to beat an off day

Remember the time when you felt like a hamster on the loose? When that happens, I know for sure that it’s going to be an off day for me. I turn serious, if not melancholic as I try to cope with the rattle inside.

The world’s a rat race and I try to keep silent as much as possible to keep my pressure buttons safe. Then, when I have done what I am supposed to do, I put a chat-party sign up. There are many ways to beat an off day.

Once upon a time, it was to go to the fields and thresh more wheat. Nowadays, some people just pig out on high-carbo and high-fat diets.. or just go off the deep end.. but such rebellion can come back with a punch... two days later, you will be more grumpy with all the weight additions. Then, you hit the gym for a month to get rid of it. Imagine! Your off day’s revolt avenges with a month’s work!Hmm…doesn’t sound pretty?

Then, let’s re-think about everything we said so far.

Pop Quiz:

How do we beat an off day?

Be silent. For many people, this could be: praying, meditating, mentally reorganizing things you should do for that day. Most often that not, we have an off day because of the many stresses that we go through. So, it does not happen for no reason.

Don’t crash. Ever seen a computer that’s been infected with a virus? They say it crashes. So, we can call your problems a viral infection. Who cares? It doesn’t matter. But just like flu virus, it leaves you less enthusiastic, nauseous maybe, or confused. But you don’t need to take medicines. Just need to reboot yourself and re-install a few circuits here and there (review reality and your limitations and have faith you can kick it off) and you’ll be as good as brand new.

Energize. A good exercise session helps release bodily toxins and rejuvenates your mind as well. You need mental clarity to think things through so put it in its best condition. Go for a walk, enjoy the scenery or inhale the sea breeze.

Be a doer. Don’t complain. Don’t slack. Don’t stop. As Nike’s famous line says “Just do it.” When we whine about too many things and if I were to record them, we’d see that you have actually spent more time complaining than fixing the problem. The more you drown yourself in the negative, the lesser your productivity gets.

Grab a quick break. While you’re at it, talk to people. This therapy might work for some but not all. If it does for you, then, what’s holding you back? However, over-indulging yourself is not a good idea. So, make sure you don’t procrastinate on what you have to do next.

Treat yourself. I usually go to a movie and watch something funny to end my off day.. it leaves a smile on my face as I go to bed... It’s also my way of rewarding myself because I have gone through it all again!If you’re having such a day, don’t call in sick... If you do that, you’d be welcoming more problems on your doorstep for next day’s session. Get on your feet, take a shower, eat a healthy breakfast and be ready to rock and roll as usual. The more you fake it, the more you believe that it’s just another ordinary day!
