How To Refocus When You Have A Bad Day

  1. This is one of those lessons I wish I would have learned long ago, and I’m working on teaching my children. Bad moments don’t make bad days unless we let them, and that’s what Satan wants. Love your questions. Thanks for joining us on Candidly Christian today!

    1. “Bad moments don’t make bad days unless we let them” – yes! You’re so right; the enemy wants us to stay distracted and worked up instead of turning everything over to the Lord right away. I wish I’d learned that sooner in life as well. Thank you so much for having me, Heather!

    1. Thanks so much, Emily! I’m glad you found this article helpful, and please let me know how the questions work for you. They’ve been real game changers for me!

  2. These are great questions! I’m finding a good reminder for me, too, is simply the phrase – choose joy. With that reminder it helps me to refocus and reframe the events of the day to more positive one.

    1. I LOVE the idea of having a phrase to go back to in order to shift your perspective on difficult days, Melissa! “Choose joy” is a great one!

  3. Good advice. I tend to get on with my day but I have a couple family members who really wrestle with disappointment in the moment.

      1. Dear Abigail,

        First, thank you for your words of wisdom! After I asked the two questions, I felt it opened a deeper dialog with myself and God. I often feel like I get tripped up in the “right” way to approach God when In reality as long as I come with my whole heart I know he will guide me.
        Thanks again for your insight and questions!


    1. Yes, Julie – it really is all about perspective! Some days aren’t really bad at all; we just get caught up in a challenging moment and allow it to ruin the rest of our day. I’m so glad you found the questions helpful!

  4. Yes! I actually wrote about this recently. My blog post was about not being too hard on yourself when you have those bad days- which is something that I totally struggle with from time to time.

    1. That’s so important to remember Heather! Bad days come and we can’t blame ourselves or get caught up feeling guilty or being hard on ourselves. I’m so glad you’re talking about this too! I’m going to check out your blog post now.

  5. One bad moment can ruin the day, if we focus on that bad moment. Some days have lots of bad moments and some days have lots of good moments. Focus on the good and ask God for His guidance in dealing with the bad. 🙂
