It’s a dilemma as old as time. The season is winding down, the best teams have clinched playoff births, others are fighting for survival, and some already know when their seasons will end.
This can lead to an incredibly dark time in people’s lives. Consider, for example, the San Antonio Spurs. This season, the Spurs will be heading to their 19th straight post season. Can you imagine how their fans would feel if they didn’t make the playoffs next season? That would be absolutely tragic for them.
Keeping that in mind, imagine how all of Canada must feel right now. Zero Canadian teams will make the NHL playoffs. People will be rattled. People will be crushed. People will be looking for things to do to take their mind off of the season that was.
Here are a few tips, tricks, and activities to help ease the pain:
Find a bandwagon, jump on, stay for the ride.
It’s like a summer fling; it’s fun while it lasts, but it’s not where your heart truly rests.
Take a pottery class.
There is truly nothing better than crafting a nice vase, am I right? Time consuming and ultimately rewarding. Pottery its the way to go.
Create a blog that makes light of what you love, i.e. sports…
Get a new phone game.
Those things can take up so much time. First you’re downloading Hay Day, then in the blink of an eye you’re running the most wonderful farm in all the land, equipped with cows, chickens, and pigs.
A good cry can help you get over the absence of the post season. Tears are transformative. Allow yourself to be transformed. We all have the capacity to change. #deep.
Adopt a pet.
Bring home a cuddle buddy in your time of need.
No matter what you do, please remember that there is always next season. Unless, of course, your team is in it’s final season, in which case that sucks big time and I have no advice for you.
Social media advice of the week: make sure you have an account before you try and post, those help big time.
Enjoy your week,
