Don’t let the bastards get you down

Sometimes in life the hits just keep on coming don’t they?

Whether you’re having to deal with crap in the office, or you have issues with family or loved ones, they all take a toll.

So how to deal with this? How to persevere and keep going? It’s not easy at all. Here are some tips I’ve worked out that help me.

1) ensure you’re rested and keep exercising.
2) ensure you’re eating well.
3) be open and communicate. Talk to the correct people in your life (i.e. those that love and support you, who have your back and don’t judge), you’ll learn that a problem shared is a problem halved.
4) eat the frog. Don’t put off addressing the issue.
5) don’t give up.

What other tips do you have that you’ve found useful in your life? Please share!

  1. Don’t be so stubborn, open up and soften up it can be very humbling. Be compassionate and positive, this attracts some great like minded people in your life. When you feel like you are trapped and cornered, know that you DO have choices, be brave and speak up, seek help, take control and empower yourself. Life will always throw bad times at you, how you choose to respond is in your hands. Learn from it and grow as a person. Value yourself, don’t wait for others to rescue you, you CAN do this. I agree with Simon, exercise lots and eat the best you can. Write stuff down, write lists. If everything seems so huge, chop it up into manageable chunks and deal with one chunk at a time.
