On some days I need to spend more time resting with a heating pad. I have a bad habit of referring to these days as “bad” days. The truth is, it is not good or bad, it is another day. It is my attitude that needs adjustment. I need to accept that I have to rest and be thankful that I have a bed to rest on. Maybe I will replace the word “bad” with the word “movie”.
Reframing the context in this way makes it feel more like a luxury than a punishment.
