See How Easily You Can Brighten Your Day2 min read

Life is all about ups and downs. I believe all of us experience our fair share of good days and bad days.

Try to google “How to deal with good days?”

You won’t find a single website dealing with this question. In fact, Google will automatically replace the word good with bad and will show you the search result.

Well, you don’t need to do tons of things to brighten your day. The only thing that you need to do is change your perspective!


The Only Thing That You Need To Do To Brighten Your Day!

When you say that you are having a bad day, you will notice that you are only focusing on the bad things. Isn’t that wrong?

How can you ignore the good things that have happened? The good stuff might look insignificant but they are not. It’s important to appreciate the good things in life.

I understand that it is difficult to break the negative chain of thoughts. But the good news is that you can still do it.

Grab the free printable below and start writing on it. The PDF copy of the printable is also available at free of cost.

What’s Bothering You?

The aim is not to ignore the bad things. Be aware of the things that are bothering you. List them now.

After the list is ready, think about it. Can you solve the problem? If the answer is yes, go and solve it. If the answer is no, just let it go.

Think about the bad stuff objectively. If you include subjectivity in it, you will end up overthinking. And we all know how bad it is to overthink.

Count The Blessings!

After listing the things that are bothering you, take a deep breathe and let it go. Change the focus now! Think about the good things. What made you happy today? What are the things that made you feel great?

Now create a list of all the good things that have happened. It can be something as small as having a good cup of coffee.

Remember, it’s a bad day not a bad life. Smile now!

  5. I honestly believe with what you say. We can’t control all the things happening to us. Let’s shift our focus to what we can control – that is our mindset, our perspective. With that, we can be systematic on how we re going to attack each of the problems arriving. Thank you for sharing this! 🙂
