re: How do you get over bad days? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

The hardest thing on days like this is to follow good advice that you seem to know but at the same time don't believe in it at times when you feel bad.

I have an algorithm that I going to use in this moment. I have had this algorithm for some time, but as I said, I forget about it when I really feel bad.

  1. Detach from the problem for a period of time, take a walk is the best way to do that.
  2. As soon is possible explain your feeling to someone.
  3. Find a circle of things that you have control over.
  4. Put your efforts to solve, improve things inside the circle.
  5. Expand the circle.
  6. Repeat 3-6, if it doesn't work 1-6.

Two things also can help. Gratitude and a list of previous achievements.

If gratitude didn't work for you, as for me sometimes, then you can use a Zen practice to wish happiness and well being to someone with whom you don't have complicated relationships.

Keep or make a list of previous achievements. Stick to write to it every day. It will save some days in the future. When you read this list, you realize that the situation you are in is created in your own mind. That in fact you have already achieved a lot, and this indicates that you can achieve much more.

 

I like 3-6 a lot and I must admit, I have been doing that sometimes without thinking about it. "then you can use a Zen practice to wish happiness and well being to someone with whom you don't have complicated relationships." I've heard something similar to this. Is like say something nice to someone to make their day brighter?

 

Is like say something nice to someone to make their day brighter?

Here is the process:

  1. Find a seat
  2. Close eys
  3. You need to imagine vividly one person with whom you have not complicated relationships (a colleague, for example)
  4. Then you need to wish this person "may you be happy'
  5. "May you be safe"
  6. "May you be healthy, peaceful, and strong"
  7. "May you give and receive appreciation today"

You need to truly believe in what you are saying. Tim Ferriss said that this practice he recommended to couple of his friends and after a week of practicing they said "it was the most amazing week in my life". It is a powerful tool!
