No matter where you are in life, it’s not uncommon to feel lost, listless and purely unmotivated. Anyone who is in this moment knows that you can’t stay in this spot forever. It could pass on its own or you can be proactive. If you can’t afford to be in this funk then here are a list of things that just might help!
1. Fasting! There’s nothing like a little deprivation to clear your mind. When your mind is clear you will be able to connect with the things that really matter to you. It has also been shown to have mood boosting affects. Fasting has also been known to help with weight loss when done intermittently. There are several ways to fast. Such as ingesting nothing but water up until a certain time of day, or only ingesting fruits and veggies. I’ve found this to be very helpful when trying to overcome negative situations and energy.
2. Write your feelings down! This can be a good accompaniment to fasting as well as prayer. Getting those ideas, fears, negative thoughts on paper can be like release therapy. You can burn them or save them to go back to later. When your mind is clear you may have some great gems to go back to and revisit. You can also revisit your goals or things you are working toward. Reminding yourself what you are doing and why can help reignite the flame. Don’t lost track of where you’re going!
3. Travel! To me, there is nothing more soothing that sitting on a beach watching the waves come and go. Even the drive to your destination can even allow you time to clear your head and reconnect with the things that matter most to you. You can literally leave those worries behind for a moment and escape whatever is that is bothering you. When you comeback, you’ll have a new attitude and be ready to conquer. If you can’t travel, take a walk. I’m cheap, theres always an alternative!
4.Rest! You don’t always have to be on top of it every second of the day. It’s okay to take a day off and do absolutely nothing but stuff your face and binge watch Netflix. You have to take a break sometimes! Give yourself a specified amount of time to be in this funk and once it’s over get back to business. You have goals to reach!
When you’re feeling like you might not be going down the right path, or you have no motivation to continue down the one you’re on try these steps. They’ve been a great help to me, let me know if they work for you!
