mad-man-very-frustrated-angry-isolated-white-background-34681015It doesn’t take much to turn a good day sour. You wake up late, the kids are arguing, your car battery is dead, and you have to do the hundred-yard dash to the bus stop. The day has barely begun, and it seems like everything is going wrong.

Here are 3 tips to get you back on track when you have a bad day:

Deep Breaths

If your nerves are frazzled, you can’t think clearly, and find the solutions that are going to make you feel better. Take a break and go somewhere where you won’t be disturbed. Inhale to the top of your lungs, and let your breath out very slowly. Repeat this 2-3 times and you’ll feel yourself becoming calmer.

Gratitude List

When you have a bad day, you often have to dig deep to remember the things you are thankful for. You have another day of life, a warm house, food to eat, etc. Make a list of your blessings and you’ll find that you start thinking of more things to be thankful for.

Plan Something Enjoyable

Planning something enjoyable can make a big difference when you have a bad day. Unplug the phone and have a cocktail. Get the whole family involved in a lively board game, or schedule a relaxing massage.

By following these 3 tips, you can turn any bad day around.
