1. Forget about the past – Just because something bad already happened doesn’t mean that more bad things are already heading your way. Forget about it and move on. If you don’t you’re just setting yourself up for the self-fulfilling prophecy of disaster.
2. Put things in perspective - How bad are things really? Will you still be thinking about it tomorrow? How about next week? If the answer is “No” then you have not reason not to forget about it now. Most of the time you’re better off just forgetting about whatever happened.
3. Redefine “good” and “bad” – If you can look at your life, and all of the good you have in it, you will be able to let the little things slide. “Bad” isn’t really bad when it is heavily outweighed by “good”. Your biggest challenge is to keep all of those good things in mind, or on the scale in this case.
4. Walk it off – If something happened to put you in a bad mood, chances are your whole body will feel it. You’ll lose motivation and want to just go back to bed. Take a quick break and walk around the block. The fresh air and exercise will help to reenergize your body and give you the motivation you need to push past any bad happenings.
5. Hope for the best – It’s very easy to fall into the trap of “expecting the worst” but hoping for the best is so much more fun. When you have a goal or dream in the front of your mind it’s easier to move past any obstacles or challenges that may get in your way.
