Bad Day? Start Over!
Have you ever had one of those days where you wish you just stayed in bed? They are the worst! They are full of stress, put you in a bad mood, and just ruins a perfectly good day. I have had plenty of those lately, mainly because I am getting closer to finishing school and getting my second degree. I have had days where I had so much work to do and was trying to do it all with little sleep. I’m sure someone out there knows that feeling. The thing is, no matter how bad the day starts out as, you can seriously make it better. Yes, there are some things that might be unavoidable but you really can turn your day around. Heck, it is your job to turn it around.
We only have a finite amount of time here on earth. It would be a shame to waste that time being stressed out, angry, or upset. When you start seeing that things are getting out of control and that you are feeling overwhelmed, just stop. Yes, you heard me. Stop. Take a moment to take a few deep breaths and step away from the situation. If you are able to, walk away for a little bit and gather yourself. This little break can really help you relax and refocus. If you are able to go do something else for a little bit. Do something that you enjoy. If you can’t, then just focus on your breathing and clear your mind. It will make all the difference. Once you take that little break from the drama and the stress you will see that things will run a little smoother.
You have the power to make your day better. Don’t allow the day to make you feel like you can’t even take a moment for yourself because you can. You owe it to yourself. So the next time you feel overwhelmed just hit the pause button. Take a few breaths and restart your day. You will be amazed how much better the day becomes when you do this.
