I know how it feels.
Those days when you just don’t feel like doing the work…aka adulting.
You feel unmotivated, uninspired and want to lay in bed to hide from the world.
Firstly, give yourself a break. We’re all human. We all feel like that from time to time and guess what, it’s normal.
However, is it okay to sit in that state for the entire day? Probably NOT…especially if you have little ones that depend on you for food, clothing, or shelter.
Here’s how to deal with yourself on those days:
1. You’re only HUMAN.
Everyone has their up/down days. The worst thing that you can do is to beat yourself for feeling the way you do, getting stuck in a place of guilt and shame.
2. Baby STEPS.
The fastest way to kick your funk is literally by taking action.
Start small… Ask yourself, what are the things that you need to get done daily, that you usually get done with a fair amount of ease.
3. Do the hard things FIRST.
So by now, if you’ve started doing the small things, you’re most likely starting to feel a bit better!
Make a list of all of the things that you are resisting doing right now, in your life or business.
It may be cleaning out your wardrobe, picking up/organizing kids rooms, replying to all of those emails that have remained unread for far too long, for example.
And then, DO THAT! Take each item minute by minute or moment by moment or day by day if need be. It will get done!
And trust me, you’re going to feel so good about yourself after conquering that list that you will turn around and say, what bad mood?
If that doesn’t help then put on “Uptown Funk” (Bruno Mars), have a mini dance party, and enjoy a few minutes to yourself before getting back to it!
Remember – you have a CHOICE!
You are in control and you are perfectly capable of shaking that funk at any time!
