It is very rare to have the kind of day that is completely perfect. Even the best days are not without their little flaws. Imperfection is the norm, and the way people handle it is what makes their days good or bad. Being an optimistic, cheerful person, I find that it is very rare for me to experience a day in which things that don’t go my way bring me down. However, I do have the occasional day when nothing goes my way, everything is off, and I want to lock myself in the bathroom and ignore the world until the next morning. If you’re having one of those days, there are a few things you can do to bring a little bit of peace to the moment to help you get through it.
Enjoy the Quiet
It might not surprise you to learn that peace and quiet is essential to everyone. If you manage to get the kids to bed, the dishes done, and you finally have time to relax, you can find some peace and quiet. All you have to do is mute the television when commercials come on. Those few minutes of absolute silence are all it takes to refresh your mind and make you feel at peace.
You know deep breathing is great for your mind and body. What you don’t do is breathe deeply as often as possible. Use time in the car, in the shower, and in bed to practice your deep breathing. The constant practice will have you feeling calmer and much more peaceful in no time at all.
Use the Bathroom
Excuse yourself in the midst of a hectic day to use the restroom. No one will question your need for a few moments of privacy. It doesn’t matter if you have to use it or not, just go in there, lock the door, and take a few minutes to breathe, relax, and enjoy the solitude. It helps.
