How to stop a bad day in its tracks

How to stop a bad day in its tracks

Some days you wake up feeling like Gordon Ramsay.

Your alarm scares the bejaysus out of you, four times.

You stumble out of your Ikea bed and kick your shin on the corner of it. Goddamn Ikea beds.

Your limbs feel bricky; there’s no water in the kettle.

You know it’s all downhill from here.

Other days you wake up to a symphony orchestra. Sunlight beams through the window and you leap out of bed with zest. You congratulate yourself for sidestepping the bed and strut into your day like a boss. You sing Justin Timberlake at your highest pitch while grinning at strangers in the street.

You’re basically radiating sequins.

Have you ever wondered what makes a good day start out as a good day? Have you considered how you can engineer more bloody good days and less of the rubbish ones?

I have. I’ve done quite a lot of research and experimentation on it actually.

And I’ve concluded that the state of my mind when I wake up sets the tone for the rest of my day. And that I can alter my wake up mood even if I wake up feeling like a snappy old trout.

And THEN, I wrote a g-book about it.

Because we’ve all had enough of e-books.

It’s called:

Bloody Good Day 101: How to Stop a Bad Day in its Tracks

This is the routine I personally use to set myself up for a productive day of

self-high fives and general sanity.

No matter which corner of the bed I wake up on. Sometimes I’m diagonal.

When I skip it, I find myself crying under my desk scrolling through cat videos.

That’s not true, I don’t like cat videos, but it flows better than “videos of boxer puppies on a slide”.

Maintaining a bloody good life is all about getting out of your drunken-monkey mind and into the present moment. The mind is where all negativity, boredom, dissatisfaction, judgement, worry and stress occur.

Imagine being free of all that.

Believe it or not, you bloody well can.

Everything sounds better in French.

Ps – I’m using my g-book to lure unsuspecting citizens onto my Bloody Good newsletter list (it’s a highly covert operation) so that I can feel good about myself and tell people about my huge newsletter list. Keep it under wraps.

Gidday, I'm Andrea

I'm a mindfulness advisor and former cynical pessimist.

I used to be an awkward, pessimistic, mediocrely happy overachiever.

Life looked good on the outside, but on the inside things were average.

I was indecisive, I didn't know what to do with my life, I self-sabotaged the hell out of my relationships.

I had a feeling I was going to keep f-ing things up for myself unless something radical changed.

The life handbrake-turn that followed over the next few years came as the result of learning what I now teach in Bloody Good Life 101. Just practical, relatable techniques without any rainbow and butterfly jibber jabber.
