It is no secret that bad days//moments happen, ++ sometimes you can’t shake the funk that comes with one. What if you took 5 minutes from your bad day to find one positive thing that will come from it? Embrace the positives in life + follow these simple steps below to get back on the positive track when things go awry —
Start with taking 5 minutes to reflect on what has happened to make your day *bad.* Was there a loss? A rude comment? Maybe there were a string of annoyances + now you can’t concentrate on anything at your desk. Take a moment + reflect on the true cause of negativity.
2] FIND THE POSITIVE
With everything going on, what is one positive that has come from the situation? All you have to do is find one. It could be something as small as a lesson on teamwork to something as big as finding a new goal for yourself! Have you learned a new way to communicate, or has the rude comment helped you embrace your wonderful self? If you are recovering from a loss, find your favorite memory + smile. This is the *positive feeling* you’re looking for! : )
3] EMBRACE THE POSITIVE
Embrace this new feeling + use it as motivation! Find the goal that you want to set + go crush it! Bad test grade? Figure out how you can ace the next exam! Fight with your best friend? Decide how you can improve your relationship from now on. Set an action plan on how you’ll reach your new goal + get goin’ : )
Set your new plan into motion, stay focused + keep your goal in sight. If you feel overwhelmed, take a moment + remember your *why.* Why do you try hard in school? To become your own #GirlBoss + chase your dream, to provide for your future family? Clarify your goals by clarifying your *why.* The clearer your intentions, the more clearly you’ll be able to create a specific action plan + be on your way to a better day.
