Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new. -Brian Tracy
The first week in for my Goddess University Sorority Sisters is off to an AMAZING start. So much love, compassion and support in this group I couldn’t be more proud. They just keep getting better and better. Kudos to you ladies.
I’m always so impressed and honored to have girls that continue to re-peat these sessions. They “get it”. They are dedicated to setting the bar higher for themselves and working to see changes happen, not only in their bodies, but in their lives.
Goal and intention setting always brings great purpose and drive to life and I love helping ladies through the process. It makes me incredibly happy!
Buuuttttt…we are certainly all human and have our moments. Those moments when you just lose focus, get tired or get caught in a moment of “funk”. This “funk” I speak of is not the immediate need to take a shower. It’s that mental space you get in that is just blah or maybe burnout.
I was talking with one of my regular Goddesses earlier this week made me think a lot about this topic. It also made me think about how easy it has been for me in the past to just continue down this “blah” path if I let myself.
So here are 5 ways I “de-funk” my mind and hit refresh on my perspective:
1. Call my sister.
This is easy. She will give it to me straight and will snap me out of my funk. She always knows the perfect thing to say. Do you have a person like that in your life? Put them on speed dial!
2. I get my exercise done in a different way.
This week I went for a run at 5am! And you all know how much I dislike running! I had NEVER done that before, and it was actually so serene and calming. Are you doing the same exercises or classes? Maybe it’s time to brave a new class at Venus 🙂
3. I unplug from social media.
Whaaaat!?? This may be unfathomable for some of you, but I do it regularly. Power off that cell phone and get in tune with what’s going on around you. How much mental energy are you wasting getting trapped in the Facebook time-suck?
4. I take a “mental health day”.
This is your permission to take a day off work and pamper yourself. Maybe that means taking a much needed nap, getting a pedicure, reading a smut-filled book or going window shopping. No “to-do” list, just whatever you want to do with no guilt.
5. I set new goals.
Usually when I’m in a funk I need to push out of my comfort zone and learn something new. Then, when I come back to my typical routine, I can see it with fresh new perspective and re-enjoy it. Is there something on your bucket list you can start researching? A new language, skill, education or hobby you’ve always wanted to learn? What are you waiting for!?
So there you have it. Five ideas to shake up your routine a little bit and give you a little bit of a challenge. Try one of them and let me know how it goes!
