Day 46 | 5 steps to beat a funk!

Hey guys!

It definitely has been a while. My last post was day 17. Here we are at day 46!

 

There is so much I want to tell you all! If you follow my social media you will know I have been a little MIA these past few weeks. I promise there is good reasons. Although, I made some empty posting promises – Sorry if I got anyones hopes up and then failed to delivery. I’m working on it.

AnyWAY! Today is day 46. Yesterday I started a podcast. Not really focusing on much at the moment. I guess I’ll see where it takes me. I figured out, sitting in front of a camera may not be my thing. What about a microphone? Yeah – I’ll give it a shot.

It wasn’t uncomfortable. I wouldn’t say it was easy either. It happened. You can find it on my youtube channel. Check it out here!

 

As mentioned above I have been feeling super bummed out lately. I know I am not alone on this.

So, here is my ‘how to’  on cheering myself up from a funk state of mind, quickly and effectively.

1. Make a list of 5 to 10 things you love to do that immediately make you feel better. 

For example, mine are reading, playing the guitar, dancing, singing, watching my favourite you tubers, cleaning, drawing, going for a walk and turning on my favourite playlist.

2. Reach out to one of your favourite people. Ask how they are?

You may not feel like talking, but listening to someone else talk about something might help you out your own situation into perspective. My no. 1 go to person to talk to is my Mum. She always knows what to say. Not to mention she is one of the strongest minded people I’ve ever met in my life.

3. Relax, not everything has to happen right now

This one is hard for me to understand most days. I am big on instant gratification, and as we are the generation of now – I know a lot of you will be, too. The best thing to remember is that we have TIME. if it doesn’t get done now. You can do it later. You need to give yourself the ability to accept that doing nothing might be the best use of your recovery and relaxation time right now.

4. Regroup and re-evaluate

I can not stress this one enough. If something is not working for you, and you’ve tried everything. Maybe it’s time to stop, re group your thoughts and emotions and re evaluate your WHY? Why are you doing this? WHO does it affect? IS it imperative to your survival? Is it creating more stress than joy?

I like to write out my goals every couple of months to re assess whether they are simply adding too much pressure and causing me to procrastinate on actually achieving them at all. Give it a try.

Remember to follow the SMART acronym when creating goals for optimum success.

5. Reconnect and Accept

Lastly, try to reconnect with yourself and accept that you are human. Every human develops hormones and feelings and every human is affected. Yes, EVEN the ones that look like they are stone cold 24/7 – they aren’t. While not everyone may experience your exact emotions, just understand that you may not be the only one either. Don’t victimise yourself. It is okay to relish in your emotions for a little bit, just enough for you to understand why you are feeling them. Then it’s time to pick yourself up and say – “This too, shall pass” 

Always know there are better options than giving up.

I am curious to know what type of things helps you calm down and reconnect with yourself. Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time…

Sincerely creating myself,
Julieanne
