7 Wonderful Ways to Get through a Bad Day at Work ...


We all have bad days when we wish that we'd just stayed under the duvet and hadn't bothered to venture out into the big wide world at all, but there are some wonderful ways to get through a bad day at work that will help to ease the strain.

Even those with seemingly perfect jobs will have had days when things just don't go the way they wanted them to, but it's how we deal with these days that matters and what we do when things at work just don't go to plan.

So here are my best ways to get through a bad day at work.

1. Talk It through

When you're having a particularly rough day, it can be good to talk it through with someone.

Quite often, hearing yourself talk about the problem can help you to rationalize and put things into perspective.

It can also help to share the problem and hear someone's views on it, and when I'm having a bad day, I find that talking about it can really help.

Whether it's talking it through with a frolleague (friend/colleague) or someone you call-up in times of trouble, this is one of the best ways to get through a bad day at work.

2. Walk It out

Sometimes a walk can do wonders and your work day is no exception.

Going for a walk can help you to relieve that tension when it all gets a little too much.

Getting a little fresh air and some exercise can help both the body and mind and give you the strength you need to get through that bad day.

3. Calming Sounds

Calming spa and zen music can really help to calm you down too.2

I also love to listen to a little classical music when the stress starts to build up and there are other sounds which calm me down, such as the sounds of rain or whale song.

These sounds have a great calming effect on the mind.

My favorite calming app is Nature Sounds, a free app which has over thirty five calming and soothing sounds and music to ease your troubles away.

There's everything from the calming sounds of the beach to the sounds of the meditative jungle.
