Don’t let a bad morning commute or rude comment from a co-worker affect your attitude for the entire day. Fol­­low this advice to get back on track:

  • Accept and get over it. Don’t play the victim and don’t stew in your own rage. Accept that something bad happened to you and move on.
  • Slow down. When you’re running late, you become frazzled, and that stress causes more problems. Take a deep breath, refocus and move with deliberate action.
  • Take a breather. Sometimes, the resentment, anger or stress you feel is overwhelming. Take five minutes to drink a cup of coffee, scan some positive news, call a trusted friend or family member for support, read jokes and so on. Once you are calm, you can hit the reset button and begin your day anew.
  • Plan a great evening. When you have something to look forward to, the day seems less daunting.
