How to Cope When You Are Having a Bad Day

How to Cope When You Are Having a Bad Day

We all have them. Days when things don't go as planned. Days when we just want to go back to bed and start all over again, or better yet, go back to bed and wake up to a new day. I had not 1, but 2 days like that this week. On the 1st day, I utilized my usual coping...
