10 Simple Steps For Getting Through A Bad Day

Are you having a bad day? Did you have a fight with your partner or with a co-worker? Got stuck in heavy traffic? Got late for work? Had your boss pick on you? Spilled a coffee on your dress? It’s ridiculous how these petty, little things can tarnish an otherwise great day. But the great news is, you can turn around a bad day just as quickly as it started. All you have to do is change your perspective.

Let me share to you one of my favorite quotes of all time:

“If you don’t like the world you see, change the prescription of your glasses.”

– Chi-Ning Chu

The truth is there’s nothing wrong with the world, it just depends on how we view it on our perspective. We can’t stop these petty annoyances to happen but what we can stop is letting them get to our nerves and let them successfully pull us down. If you change your perspective and focus on positive things, you’ll be amazed on how easier it will be for you to let the pity parade pass you by. Follow these 10 simple steps and see for yourself that getting through a bad day is not that hard.

Step 1: Always Be Grateful1

Having a bad day? Before you start complaining and posting your rants on Facebook or Twitter, ask yourself this question – “Who doesn’t?” and be grateful instead. Use these problems or experiences to learn and to make you even stronger. Don’t let them get you down. Just focus on your duty and goals and realize that everyone, just like you and even Britney Spears, is experiencing problems, and may be even worse that you’ll feel bad for them yet thankful that you’re not them. Just remember, life has to keep going and you should, too.

Step 2: Practice Deep Breathing

Combat the rush of stress hormones that a bad day can bring about by doing deep breathing exercises. It is one of the best and natural therapeutic ways that is widely used by medical practitioners to relieve stress and hasten recovery. Just take a few moments to close your eyes, take a deep breathe and exhale all the negativity and stress away.
