I am not going to lie. I am struggling a little bit the past few days being positive. Factors that are both in and out of my control are definitely having a toll on my mood.
Unfortunately my schedule does not allow for a mental health day today so I turned on some happy music and had a little dance party with myself next to my desk.
I feel much better shaking it like a polaroid picture and getting out of my own head for just a few minutes before getting back to work. But I know music or dance parties won’t work for everyone.
