Ever been stuck in a mental funk you just can’t seem to shake?
Today I almost feel like mental funks are unavoidable – we’re all struggling through our own hurdles of life but that social media highlight reel is right there to remind us what we’re missing out on.
Having great support is key, but when it comes down to it, you are ultimately in control of your mindset and have the power to change it. Dealing with anxiety and depression, I experience a pretty good amount of ‘down in the dump’ days – no shame.
There are plenty of days where I feel waves of no motivation, overwhelming amounts of stress and tons of pessimistic thoughts. Its been a journey so far, and some days are better than others, but here are some of my recommendations to pull yourself out of these mental funks.
1. Simplify It
A ton of factors affect our overall thoughts and feelings of well-being. When we are in the moment, it can be hard to see the root of the problem. Sometimes its best to just take a second, sit down with a journal and break it down. Determine where your energy needs to be channeled.
2. Treat Yourself
3. Break a Sweat
5. Spice Up Your Space
Gloomy feeling days are going to happen but practicing these recommendations will help you live a better, healthier, happier life.
