Episode 169: Make a Bad Day Better

Everyone has a bad day some time. On the day we recorded this episode, Janine was experiencing a bad day that left a dark cloud hanging over her head. Shannon was able to make suggestions that helped her (and can help you) make a bad day better.

Discussion topics include:

  • How it’s possible to reset bad day
  • Janine’s terrible, horrible, no good very bad day
  • Taking a step back during a bad day and looking on the bright side
  • Wallowing vs trying to snap out of it
  • “Yes, and…”
  • The importance of acknowledging when something sucks; it allows your unconscious mind to feel gratitude
  • Learning from our bad days
  • Giving yourself a reset by moving your body and shifting your energy
  • Getting in touch with what’s important to you to help you get past a bad day
  • The value of a good laugh on a bad day


  • For a little deeper dive on what Shannon said about the importance of acknowledging something bad before looking at the good, see her blog post, The Paradox of Affirmations
  • To see Yoga with Adriene’s Knocking at Heaven’s Door in action, watch minutes 2:30 to 4:15 on this video, Yoga for Stress Relief
