Getting Through A Tough Week


Some days are a walk in the park, while others are simply a nightmare. When you are confronted with the latter, all you want to do is stay under the covers and sleep. But hard as it is, life moves on. All you can do is get through the week so you can fight another day. Looking for tips? Read below.

Distance Yourself From The Stressor

When you climb the top of the mountain, your perspective changes. What may seem large below is insignificant up high. The same rules apply when distancing yourself from your problem. Because your view is somewhat changed, there is clarity and a chance to ponder things. What you thought was a difficult week could be masked as something else.

Think Positive Thoughts

Be grateful. No matter how much your boss embarrassed you at work, be happy that you have a job. No matter how much you hated the movie that you watched with your friends, be thankful that you have friends to watch it with. Even if there are tons of things to clean around the house, at least you have shelter. These things are often neglected when you are having a tough week. But if you think about it, you will realize that you are luckier than you are getting on.

Vent To Someone

Sometimes all you need is to get things off your chest. You can do this by speaking to someone, like a friend or family member. If you can, talk to strangers as well. Often, they can give you good advice because they are not privy to your familial or work dilemma, just the exact problem you said.

Treat and Pamper Yourself

Get that shoes you have always wanted, just because. Eat that extra serving of ice cream. Go and get a massage. By pampering yourself in this tough week, you will be able to recover quicker.

You cannot control the events that are happening around you. However, you can take hold of how you will deal with it. Your thoughts and reactions are yours to master. Remember that when going through a horrible week.
