Take a step back
Sometimes, when we get immersed in a situation, we begin to find ourselves getting stressed, struggling, feeling as though we will never get to the end, will never succeed.
When we feel like this, it is often when we have been working hard on a difficult task, and are getting tired, seeing it up close and not getting a chance to see the bigger picture.
At times like this, it is useful to take a step back from the situation and to see it with impartial eyes.
When we do this, we can often see where we are going wrong, or see a better, more efficient way of doing things.
Sometimes, just walking away for a few minutes, taking a break or having a rest can give our mind time to reassess the situation and find a way around.
When we return to the task, it will be with a clearer mind and much greater chance of success.
