I'm having a bad day! It's a bad day! We often say these lines when things don't go as planned or work in our favour. You may feel grumpy and miserable when you're having a bad day.

Getting frustrated over the things that you cannot control, like other people's behaviours or any environmental factor is of no use. The only one thing we can control is our reaction to these factors.
The Life Coach has some tips to help you step out of the overwhelming negative emotions and thoughts that you feel on a 'bad day'. She said:
Shah concluded: One or a combination of these tips may work for you, depending on your psychology. Learning such techniques will help you keep a good level of mental health.
