Ever have one of those days?

You know, the kind of day when the best thing you can say about your day is that you made it through without stabbing anyone. I had one of those today.

Here are some of the things I use to shake off a bad day:

A frozen mocha…doesn’t matter from where. Starbucks or Panera are my go to but Dunkin’ will do in a pinch. Something about the chocolate and coffee and whipped cream makes everything better.

Bob Dylan’s album “Desire.” I’m pretty sure I napped to this a lot as a toddler, which I assume is why it has such a soothing effect on me. By the time I get to “Romance in Durango”, I’m usually singing along. It is also a good accompaniment to washing dishes.

A hot shower – the hotter the better. It’s really my cure for anything. Headache, stomachache, back pain, and especially a vague sense of malaise. Nothing better for washing away a crappy day.

Making stupid faces on Snapchat. I rarely actually take a picture and almost never share them. But why be in a bad mood when you can be a unicorn?

Celestial Seasonings Honey Vanilla Chamomile tea. As far as I’m concerned, this stuff is calm in a mug. It’s my go to when I am worrying excessively over things that will probably never happen.

If all else fails, I remind myself, as Monty Python would say, to “always look on the bright side of life.” (You’re singing along, aren’t you?)
