Even the most positive person has bad days and running a natural therapy practice can be very demanding so it stands to reason that, no matter how up-beat and enthusiastic you are, you’re going to have a bad day occasionally.

All of us have days where we want to give up. Day when you have to deal with a negative client, or you struggle with technology, or it just all seems too hard. But believe me everybody in small business has had these days and natural therapists are no different.

So, how can you turn a terrible day in to something positive?

The best way to start is by honestly acknowledging what went wrong and looking at your negative feelings. Once you can identify why the problem occurred you can either rectify it or learn a lesson from it.

And if you’re still feeling irritated or overwhelmed? Do something that you love. Go for a walk and soak up the positive energy of nature or perhaps put on your favourite 70s disco song and dance until you feel better (remember to shut the blinds first!).

If you can learn from the bad times, you will find that you are able to get up the next day re-energized and ready to conquer the world again. There is a great quote that floats around Facebook from time to time which sums up this article perfectly “Don’t place your mistakes on your head, their weight may crush you. Instead, place them under your feet and use them as a platform to view your horizons.”

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills… There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind… So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself. — MARCUS AURELIUS
