Responding to disappointment and productively moving forward
When you’re experiencing something hard in your life, it can throw you off your game. When disappointment or overwhelm strikes, how do you respond?
Sometimes you need to just give yourself a break and take time to process what is happening around you and not be productive. Whether it is meditation, exercise, fresh air, listening to music or just letting your thoughts go, you should do whatever helps you to move through what you’re feeling. For some, the predictability of just keeping a daily routine is helpful.
When something doesn’t go your way or turn out the way you hoped, you need time to process that disappointment and honor your own feelings. Then when you’re ready, you will be better able to return to a state of productivity and be your best again.
