Feeling a sense of achievement

Sometimes when something small goes wrong it can trigger a domino effect, where each problem leads to a bigger one. The solution is to take action to inject immediate positivity into the situation and avert a crisis. Do something that gives you a sense of success. Choose a small, specific task that you have done many times before and that you know you are not going to fail at. Choose something that has instant rewards, a visible result, or positive feedback. Do something that you have been avoiding, to give you even more of a sense of victory. So send that email, sew on that button, wash that jacket, water that plant. That sense of achievement you feel when you have done it will turn the tide.
