When You Wake up on the Wrong Side of the Bed

Waking up on the wrong side of the bed is a phrase used to say that you woke up in some form of a bad mood.  When a person wakes up on the wrong side of the bed you may as well watch your back most of that morning because the person is going to let anything and everything bother them. The person may not be easy to smile and may find negative in everything surrounding them.

Waking up on the wrong side of the bed totally sucks but here are some ways to get over that slump and move forward with your day:

  • If possible, lay back in bed or in a chair with total silence around you.

  • Sip on your favorite morning beverage while sitting in silence.

  • Think about not being grumpy, what is it that you can do to move forward from this slump?

  • Do not interact with the family until the grumpies have passed or you are sure to make the whole day spiral downward.

  • Go back to sleep for a short period of time if possible.

  • Take a nice walk or sit outside in the fresh air to clear your brain.

  • If all that fails, have faith that someone stronger than you, a power stronger than you, will make things better if only you allow your mind to think that way.


Waking up on the wrong side of the bed is just a pain because it can put a kink in your whole day. So if you woke up on the wrong side of the bed try the little things I noted above and see if you can get beyond the grumpies and move forward with a happy day.
