this family life episode 21: on making it through a bad day

This is podcast is a solo one from me in response to listeners and readers who wanted to know if I ever have bad days and how do I cope with them.

Yes I have bad days! I have learnt that having known strategies up your sleeve for how to cope with bad days is critical to prevent them from spiralling out of control or into a bad week.

In this podcast I share some strategies I use which include:

  • Cry and regroup
  • Not take it personally
  • Get outside
  • Choosing the timing of my battles
  • Making it easier on myself
  • Make amends
  • Reset
  • Go to bed
  • Gratitude
  • Meditation

This podcast episode is the last in the season and will return again in term four!
