If Your Partner Is Having A Bad Day Here Are 7 Ways To Cheer Them Up

Anyone can have a bad day. Especially in the darker months, and with all the Pandemic stuff happening, lockdown coming, and not everyone is a fan of the holiday season; it can get hard.

When you see your partner struggling it can be upsetting and frustrating to not know how to help. It’s also really difficult for a lot of people to ask for help when they are having a bad day. So here’s a quick and easy little list to try and cheer them up. No guarantee it works! But it’s worth a shot.

This list comes from Elite Daily and Charmin, with some mild modification:

1. Wake Them Up With A Good Cup Of Coffee Or Tea

If your S.O. is the type to smash the snooze button over and over, get up before them and make a fresh cup of coffee, or their favourite tea, so they can have the luxury of extra time under the covers. Even if they’re too sleepy to fully comprehend the gesture, it’ll start their day off on the right foot.

2. Pen An Extra-Cute Love Letter

When’s the last time you wrote your partner a love letter? Chances are, it’s been a while (if it’s ever happened at all!). Sometimes, a classically romantic gesture like filling out a card or writing a little poem is just the ticket for making them feel like the luckiest. Pull out your old art supplies —or even just a sticky note and the nearest pen — and put into words exactly what you love about them.

3. Tackle That Stack Of Dishes In The Sink

If they’re having a rough day, it’s safe to say that doing chores is at the bottom of their list. While it may not feel super sexy, handling that growing stack of dirty dishes can be the fine line between a bad day and a better day. Because, really, who wants to look at crusty old plates when they’re feeling bummed out?

4. Hand Over The Remote

There’s no better cure (or at least, temporary distraction) for a bad day than re-watching a beloved show for the millionth time. Next time your S.O. seems down, ditch your evening lineup and stream their top pick instead. Don’t be surprised when they can’t help but laugh at all the jokes they’ve heard before.

5. Stock Up On Home Essentials

Nothing turns a bad day into the worst day faster than realizing you’re out of toilet paper after it’s, well, too late. Be proactive on your next errand run and swing by the store to pick up necessities like toilet paper and flushable wipes. Your partner will appreciate you thinking about the little things and they’ll be relieved to find backups next time the roll comes up empty.

6. Cook Something That Reminds Them Of Home

There’s a reason people say the quickest way to someone’s heart is through their stomach. Surprise your partner with something they grew up loving, like baked mac and cheese or pizza topped with pineapple. If you’re not feeling particularly culinary, takeout works just as well, and also means less cleanup later.

7. Turn The Bedroom Into Their Own Personal Oasis

Stressful days suck, but taking stress to bed? Bad for you and even worse for your sleep cycle. If your partner’s dealing with a lot, make the bedroom extra cozy to help them ease into a good night’s sleep and start the next day feeling refreshed. Put on fresh sheets, fluff up the pillows, light some candles, and play some soothing music. Extra points for aromatherapy and a just-out-of-the-fridge sheet mask to help them forget the worries of the world.

These are just a few ways to express your appreciation for someone and make their life a little easier, and that can be all the difference to them.
