Unless you're a robot, you have an "off" day every now or then. You know - when your body says "no, I don't think so" to everything your mind suggests. Or when your mind is too scattered and unfocused to even think about being productive. Or when you're tired, not feeling well, unmotivated, don't have enough spoons, feel ill or sick... But you still gotta do stuff, because such is life. How do you still keep up with your to-do list and do what needs to be done, even when you're not bringing your A-game to it? (Or even B-game, for that matter...)
So you fell down a metaphorical hole and got stuck. You can’t bring yourself to do more than the bare minimum. You feel like you’re wasting your days but you just can’t get back in the groove. You can’t muster up the energy to work on that project you were so excited about just 2 months ago. What do you do?
How do you get out of a slump and jump back into your life with joy? Some people need a drastic change to motivate them and get them running, but many of us run out of steam quickly and the dumps return with a vengeance. It’s better to take it slow, but make sure you’re going in the right direction. Here are some baby steps to get you out of the dumps!
