Episode 247: Make A Bad Day Better (Redux)

Shannon’s on vacation, so we’re rerunning some favorite episodes for the next month or so. This week, we’re revisiting Janine’s bad day in 2021 and how Shannon helped her (and, we hope, you) turn it around.

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
