Don’t Get Stuck in a Rut CPM …

Do you ever get stuck in a place that you just can’t seem to get out of?

You wake up just not feeling yourself, you use your “go to” happy tricks and they are just not getting you out of your funk …

Its ok to not always be OK.

You go on Facebook it is a “false reality” people only put what they want you to see not the whole truth. Which can lead us to feel even worse. ( I challenge you to limit your Facebook time and keep it very focused).

I listened to a really good podcast this past week and guest was Dr. Brooke Kalanick. She was talking about how in today’s society we as people (especially women) don’t allow ourselves to say we are “having a bad day” or feeling “over whelmed  or stressed”. We down play it by saying “I should be thankful for what i have”, or “Some people have 4 kids I should be fine with 2″ and so on and so fourth. The more we down play our emotions the more they “eat” away at us literally and figuratively.

So It is ok to say we are feeling “off” or overwhelmed we are human but also have tools and tricks to get you out of your rut and feeling like yourself again.

Here are 4 things I do that have really helped me out of “noise” in my head:

1. Mediate

2. Journaling 

3. Reading my goals or inspirational quotes or sayings 

4. Exercise 

I also have learned that allowing myself to be ok with having 1 morning or being ok with not always be 100% 100% of the time I am able to move on much easier and get myself back on track.

CPM what tactics do you use when you are feeling down?
