Nice post on Harvard Business Review linked with The Happiness Advantage (people who start off happy are more likely to succeed; people who start off unhappy are more likely to fail). Reminder to self: ask Santa Claus to deliver me that book.

Bottom line on how to turn a bad day around:

Do:

  • Think of three things that you’re grateful for
  • Consider what you’ve already accomplished even if it’s minor
  • Reflect on what triggers your bad days and which tactics help to turn them around

Don’t:

  • Believe that you are a victim of your circumstances—you choose whether to be negative or positive
  • Hunker down at your desk—change scenery and take a few deep breaths
  • Set unrealistic expectations for your day

Have a Herculean weekend!
