Working on our bad days

With everything that’s been going on in my life, I thought it would be helpful to blog about how to turn a bad day into a good one. I’m waiting on one or two good days.

Hope the following tips help:

  • Always look at what you have, rather than what you want or would like. When the bad days set in, remember to hone in on what you have. Having a bad day will always cloud our judgment on our realities. We need to keep reminding ourselves of what we have;
  • Given the time allowance on our busy hectic schedule, physically removing ourselves from jobs that can wait, will help us turn our day around. It’s important to meet deadlines, but our health and sanity must be more important, than trying to please everyone;
  • Set time in your day to do something for yourself. Go for a walk, listen to music, take yourself shopping or simply close the office for a few hours. It works and cuts down on stress;
  • Prioritise e-mails and telephone calls in and out of work, so that anything important is dealt with. The not so important e-mails and telephone calls should be put to the back of the queue. Trying to cram or finish everything in one day will only lead to more stress.

In any event, we should be concentrating on better lifestyle choices. Choose to cut down on work commitments more regularly, so that you free-up time for yourself.

  1. The tips you mentioned here usually help me tremendously as well.

    Having the right mindset when dealing with stressful events seems to help more then anything. They say most events are 80% mental. I think there is something to that.

    Relaxation techniques help too.

    1. I totally agree with you. The mindset is very important as it helps to control our thoughts, so that we deal with things more positively, even on our bad days.

      I think you are right about relaxation techniques, although in stressful situations it’s not so easy to do. Thank you for posting.
