May 2021

Previous month we gave you some strategies to help you get through a bad day. This month we will discuss what else you can do.

When you feel divers of negative emotions, take the time to look within. Identify your emotions, name them and see what they do to your body, thoughts and how they influence your behaviour. Do not judge it ,just name it, observe and accept it for what it is. Realize that that negative emotions can happen and they are part of being humans. You can just feel it and let it pass. Seek emotional support and talk about it if you feel the need to do so. You can also choose to retreat and communicate to others that you are having a bad day and need some space.

Build up your energy and experience positive emotions from your chosen activities that day. If that does not help, you can also choose to consciously think of positive things that happen lately of which made you happy , proud or grateful. That can balance your negative filter that usually dominates the bad days and you may start feeling better.
