Days You Don't Get Anything Done

Today was a day I "didn't get anything done." At least, that's how it felt. I kept getting bogged down; immobilized by issues I couldn't figure out how to resolve.

Have you ever had such a day? How do you recover, move on, handle it?

Me? When I finally decide that it's not worth beating my head against the wall any longer, I try to find something that I can feel successful doing. It can be something simple (like baking quick and easy cookies), or educational (such as learning to code), or personally gratifying (like tinkering with one of my hobbies).

The big thing is to distance myself from the issue and focus on something else entirely. My hope is that tomorrow I can tackle the issue with renewed vigor and a different approach (if needed). I've read many homeschool moms suggest mixing things up when the usual routine isn't working on a particular day.

What tips do you have for overcoming a day that just didn't seem to go well? Because, at the moment, I'd sure appreciate any insights you have <smile>.

P.S. If you have a child even remotely interested in learning how to code, check out codecademy.com. I've been super impressed with it thus far.
