Hi There, fellow Crumblers. I recently put up a Stories Post Question on my instagram asking my awesome followers things they do if there having a ‘Dip” day and feeling a bit blue. We all have those days and it can be difficult sometimes to shake it off, no Taylor Swift pun intended. I am by no means a professional or therapist just a Mum doing her best like all you parents out there. I just thought it might be helpful to share all your ideas together somewhere for others to try. Thank you if you were one of the many contributors i had to group them as there were so many, here we go……….
For a change of scenery , a walk in the country , or even round the block can give you that head space to reset. Some of you said have a good scream in a field ( Norfolk entries I assume not sure you could get away with this in central London) You could even walk to the shop to feel less guilty about number 2,
Chocolate, Ice cream, cakes , pasta, cookies were just some of your suggestions along with wine lots of wine😂 and my Nan always use to say “a little of what you fancy does you good”. The professionals seem to think it better to ‘eat well’ when your feeling down and drink lots of water as the nutrients will help you to regulate your mood. So maybe a healthy sushi platter followed by a tub of Ben and Jerry’s is the answer 😂
If music be the food of love play on …..or whack up absolute 80s in the car with the windows down ( my personal fave) but whether it’s one direction ( questionable choice there, I won’t reveal who’s 😂) led Zepplin or Shania and Whitney, (just maybe stay away from the tear jerkers) even if you don’t know the words! Singing and humming along as loud as you can seems to help
