The other day, I felt like everything was going awry.
-Appointments got canceled.
-My passwords were not working.
-I was having tech issues.
-I spent two hours on hold with someone to try and fix my tech issues.
Basically, nothing felt like it was going right, and I was down an emotional rabbit hole of irritation.
At dinner that night, my husband noticed that I wasn’t talking much, always a first sign of something very wrong, and I wasn’t eating much… another sign of trouble. He cautiously asked me, “How was your day?”
I said, “It was a day of 1000 paper cuts. Nothing really catastrophic, but all hugely annoying and I am super grumpy.”
He responded with, “That’s Mondays for you. Tomorrow will be better.”
I looked at him with daggers. How could he be so glib? How could he sum up a day of endless frustrations to be dismissed by some cliche?
And you know what the MOST annoying thing was? He was right. After going to bed early and getting a good night’s rest, I got up and took action:
-I did an extra-long meditation.
-I journaled my intentions for the day.
-I went for a brisk walk.
-I showered and got dressed, and then…
-I did a presentation for 100 women in the television industry on Self-Care.
The rest of my day was spent with clients, fixing my tech issues, and just being productive. It was a complete turnaround from the day before.
Bad days happen to everyone and are USUALLY just temporary, but if you are struggling to get out of a particular rabbit hole, let’s talk.
Having a personal coach can help get you out of that feeling of being alone with your spinning thoughts, and back to feeling more in charge of your life.
