If the results of professional football game so depress you that can’t function as your best self on Monday morning, it might be time to stop watching professional football. Turns out that losses happen a lot in sports.
And if wishing for another day off doesn’t make you feel any better, you might do well to stop wishing for another day off.
There is, however, an alternative: Put pen to paper and write down what you’re grateful for. It’s a proven way to increase levels of happiness and optimism.
Happy, optimistic people don’t get that way because their professional football team won, and they don’t get that way because they’re on a three-day weekend.
Happy, optimistic people tend to just be that way, and good things are more likely to happen to them.
