I’d by lying to you if I said that I never say things like:
“I feel like..$#*!”
Maybe I’m tired? A bit run down?
Or maybe I’m just lacking sleep from not going to bed at 10pm because I said I ‘had to get this work done’
‘wanted me time;..
But the thing about catching yourself saying ‘I feel like [insert here]”
You are about to use an analogy…
Which means it is NOT REAL….
But I get that when you’re in this state and you’re feeling low?
It is difficult to get out of.
So here are 3 things to get out of this low energy state which will guarantee you have a rubbish day:
- Write down a list of the things that make you feel happy.
2) Whenever you feel low? Do one of these things
I can guarantee that you have a list in your head of the things that make you feel low that are top of mind awareness.
After all, if you don’t know what makes you happy, how do you know what it is to be happy?
☺ Working out
☺ Waking up feeling energised (bed by 10pm haha)
☺ Dancing with the kids (Trolls is in at the moment. Let me know if you want me to show you my dancing)
☺ going for a nap
☺ Quiz night / Facetime with family / friends (lockdown that is )
☺ Watching a film
☺ walk and a podcast / audiobook
☺ Writing a blog
☺ Date night
I could go on.
These are really simple things which I know make me feel good. They give me energy.
So If I want to feel rubbish?
I just have to ignore all of these.
That is my strategy for feeling rubbish.
Change your environment.
Ring a friend? Go for a walk. Try a workout. Try something new (like the ladies have said with our weekly live cooking and coffee mornings).
It might be the last thing you want to do…but there’s only one way to find out if it is actually the thing you need to do
Take your focus somewhere else…
What you focus on is what you focus on.
A thought does NOT mean it is true.
“I don’t have time”
“I am not fit enough”
“I can’t do it”
“It’s not the right time because [insert here]”
I can guarantee you’ve changed your opinion before right?
That’s changing your thoughts?
thoughts are there to try to protect you.
You don’t have to believe them…
In Fact, if I believed my thoughts
I wouldn’t be writing this now.
As I once a upon time believe I wasn’t good enough..
