Why do we have bad days
Now in order to understand bad days we need to look at the type of events that trigger this negative mood that affects us the whole day.
Here are the most common causes of bad days:
- 1) Short term problems: If you had a fight with someone, broke your phone or got very stressed for any reason then your perception might change to the negative and your day might become bad
- 2) Reminders of long term problems: This is one of the most popular causes of bad days. If you have a long term problem that you didn’t solve then at any point of time a reminder of this problem can ruin your day. When i talked earlier about mood swings i said that they happen when something reminds you of an already existing problem that you aren’t trying to solve
- 3) Bad dreams: Believe it or not, bad dreams can cause bad days. Even if you don’t remember the bad dream you might wake up feeling bad and then see everything from a negative angle throughout the day. See Feeling bad when waking up
- 4) Bad data: Everyday we collect so many pieces of data about the world and about ourselves. A bad piece of data can make us very upset and can easily make our day a bad one
