If you’re having a “bad” day or maybe a rough couple of weeks, then you’ll be surprised to know that this feeling is actually quite normal. If fact, doctors say that it’s uniquely part of the ‘human condition’.
Charles Goodstein, MD, clinical professor of psychiatry at NYU Medical Center in New York City claims that “the presence of anxiety, depressive moods or conflicts of the mind, does not stamp any individual as having a psychological problem because, as a matter of fact, these qualities are indigenous to the species”.
If you’re feeling down, anxious or overstressed – it’s quite normal to feel this way.
The issue arises if you feel – more or less- that the “last straw” has become your way of life and experts argue that it’s there is something on your mind that is prying out for your attention. This analysis is crucial to determine how critical your situation really is.
Take some time to reflect on the following. Create a scale from 1-10 and really analyze your situation. For the best results, be honest and truthful to and with yourself.
- I sleep too much or not at all
- I eat too much or too little
- I sound disinterested in everything
- Frequently spaced out
- I will ramble a lot or not talk at all
- I lose track of time
- I make cycinal comments – usually about myself
- I push people away
- I tend to rub my eyes and head alot
- I am always shakey
- I will avoid certain conversations
Remember – It’s just a bad day, not a bad life!
