Drop your fear of negative emotions

Don't assume that difficult emotions will negatively impact your work. Sad emotions often enhance creativity and productivity. Anger tends to make us feel more determined.

The key is to use those feelings to propel you rather than think that they will destroy your productivity.

We all have days where we feel overwhelmed. Yet, we still need to get things done.

On a low day, tasks that you struggle to do in your time off can be the ideal choice. You could also try working on a task that's aspirational and creative. It will help you feel like a competent person whose life is in order.

Find a task on your to-do list that is satisfying but not challenging - for example, writing a newsletter you've been doing for years.

Withdrawing from people increases stress and reduces productivity. Try and tell at least one coworker what you're going through to help them understand why you may be a bit less reliable than usual.

Trying to perform to a high standard when you're down can leave you so drained that you don't have the energy to process whatever is bothering you.
