My strategies below may help promote a more cheerful outlook:
- When you're feeling overwhelmed and as if you've lost control, try cleaning one unhygienic corner of your kitchen and/or one unhygienic utensil. You'll instantly feel as if you're in control again!
- Make a list of all the things you don't want to do today and don't do them.
- Caught in traffic? Smile and wave at someone in another car. This may lead to an interesting adventure or an embarrassing incident; either way, it's better than sitting there feeling frustrated and bored. (Warning: This strategy is unsuitable for introverts.)
Thought for the Day
When your partner or friend tells you they're depressed, don't ask them why or search for the root cause. Take them out and buy them an expensive present. (This is good for them and good for your human economy.)
