How to Avoid Bad Days with Jeffrey Holst

Life is made up of two things, good and bad circumstances. However, it is not the circumstances that make a day great or terrible instead; it is how we perceive it to be. Amidst tough times, we often get drowned by worry, loneliness, and fear of losing in the game of life. Sometimes, we let ourselves be paralyzed by such thoughts that we end up being the worst version of ourselves. Thus, while facing challenging circumstances, we are constantly urged to be joyful and learn how to make our everyday delightful.
