UConn Student Building ‘No Bad Days’ Lifestyle Brand

UConn junior Jack Tarca ’22 (BUS) was looking to do something positive last April as the COVID-19 pandemic began to take over the lives and minds of people throughout the world.

With that thought, and the entrepreneurial spirit he has always felt, Tarca created a website and social media channels called “No Bad Days” – a lifestyle brand that promotes mental health and well-being.

“We are still relatively small, but I have a pretty good idea of where I want it to go and build it,” says Tarca, a native of Hebron, who is a business management major with a focus in entrepreneurship and a minor in real estate.

The website has a blog promoting positivity, and is written by fellow UConn student Sara Adamson ‘23 (CLAS), a native of Glastonbury. An example of a recent entry is “Spreading Kindness,” which recommends acts like listening more attentively, holding the door for someone, waving to people, and saying thank you to someone who often goes unnoticed. There were also acts to do for oneself — such as a “digital detox” or giving yourself compliments.

“I felt like people were getting down and I wanted to make some content over the summer,” says Tarca. “I had this mantra of ‘no bad days’ and I started saying it over and over again and it has helped me get through the pandemic.”
