From Misery to Motivation

From Misery to Motivation

You know those moments when you feel so overwhelmed you just don’t even know where to begin, don’t feel like doing anything or don’t even know what your are feeling.

What to do:-

  • Grab your journal – You can begin by just free writing what is going on for you, just letting the words flow onto the page.  Or create a mindmap or list of what’s on your mind.  (See links below for detailed prompts for these)
  • Take a shower or a bubblebath – There is something about being in water that clears the mind and frees up the creative juices to generate solutions.
  • Go for a walk – Getting your body moving is always a good thing, but taking a break is sometimes the best thing.  You can come back to the tasks at hand refreshed and you also get the added bonus of burning some calories.
  • Phone a friend – I know we often don’t feel like bothering our friends with our troubles (that’s were a journal can come in very handy), but sometimes just a chat with a close friend can create a huge shift.

What do you do to move from misery to motivation?

  1. I fall into the category of just not wanting to do anything. I recognize that I’m in one of those moods, give my self permission to feel sorry for myself for a small amount of time, and then kick my butt to get out of it! I think that we have to recognize we all can’t be perfect all the time, give us permission to not be, and then move on!

    Good for you, Candace. It’s ok to wallow for a bit, but great that you limit it and get moving.
