Put a bad day into perspective by asking yourself three questions

It’s just part of life that from time to time you may have a bad day. Often there is not a lot you can do, but one thing that might help is to get a little perspective. To do this ask yourself these three questions:

  • ¬†Will this day matter two years from now?
  • Who does today actually impact on?
  • What is one small practical step that I can take to turn this day around?

The aim of these questions is to help you realise that while you may be having a bad day it’s not necessarily a disaster. Sometimes just a little perspective and positive thinking can help get a bad day back on track, or at least make it bearable.
