The worst mistake you can do is to panic, thinking that this sale slump will never come to an end. You start second guessing yourself, wondering what it is your not doing. The smartest thing you can do is take a deep breath, relax your mind. At this current time, the last thing your brain needs is additional pressure from you panicking.
Sometimes you need to back away from all the pressure, what I use to do was go to the gym and have a good hard workout, this cleared my mind. If you are not into working out then, do something entirely different that you enjoy doing. Do a crossword puzzle, anything to get your thoughts away from your sales slump. The more you think about your depression with sales, the problem will only compound without any results.
There is also an old remedy that works for many people it is called de-stressing with healthy foods. Eating certain foods will help you with the stress level you're having currently. Here are some of the examples of healthy foods you can add to your diet.
Keep in mind nothing lasts forever, your sales slump will come to an end sooner than you think. Allow your brain to relax, listen to some meditational music to help your mind come to a complete state of relaxation. It's a proven fact when the brain is exposed to certain music beats it can relieve a lot of useless pressure from your mind. One that I use for me to relax my thoughts fully is the Evening Meditation.
