We find ourselves in this position from time to time. We want to move forward, but we’re mentally stuck. One expert said, “slumps were the mind’s way of making room for the birth of new ideas.” These steps should help you move through your resistance:
Shift your focus: Sometimes a change in perspective is all it takes. Try a new hobby or mix up your daily routine. Taking a different route to work in the morning may be enough to spark your senses again.
Cancel some plans: It’s a period to reflect and not feel obligated to attend every social event. This will allow you to take control of your day.
Reassess: Take inventory of what you’ve accomplished and tasks you still have to do. Then ask yourself, is there a better way to make the most of your time?
Make a bucket list: Give yourself something to look forward to. Feeling hopeful can lift you out of the muck.
Be patient: It’s tough going through a funk. Allow yourself to feel frustrated, but know there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.
