things other people do to make up for a bad day

The other day I asked my Instagram friends to share what things they did to make up for a bad day. I have days when I feel like I can’t pick myself up, so I wondered if I could learn a thing or two from others who went through those days, too. I got a few responses and reading them alone made me LOL. They’re honest, real answers from real people who experience down days just like I do.

So if you’re one of us, read on and get some tips from strangers to help turn your bad days around–trust me, some of them are helpful!
