“It’s failure that gives you the proper perspective on success.” – Ellen DeGeneres
At some point in most of our lives life will get you down and for anyone that knows me I’m a massive stress pot. I envy people who are calm and chilled about life and when things go wrong it’s easy to let things get you down.
Picking yourself up after a setback can be difficult, failure is just a part of life but it’s how you handle it is what’s important. I failed an important exam recently towards my university degree and if I’m honest I was feeling left deflated.
The important thing is what you do after the setback and these are a few things I do to help pick myself up.
Write everything down. This is what I do when I need to get my life together. I write to-do lists and make sure I know how to make things better.
Get started on things stressing you out. After making a list of all the things I need to do, I dedicate time to get them done. This helps me feel less stressed if I’ve got all my assignments done.
Think about the good things. Trying to stay positive is important, try and focus on the good things instead of the bad and it will help you stay positive.
Exercise. I’ve recently started exercising and it is making me feel a lot better in general. I either go to the gym or do a workout in my room.
Get out of the house and do something. Going for a walk, seeing friends and just getting out helps.
