5 WAYS TO RESET WHEN YOU FEEL STUCK

10.10.2017

Sometimes we have off days, sometimes we have off weeks and honestly, it's perfectly okay. Everyone experiences a little bit of down time every now and then, but in the end we pick ourselves back up again and get into the swing of things. It's completely fine to have time for self care, and to feel like yourself again so here are five ways to help you reset when you feel stuck and need a pick me up.

Make A List -
write a list of things that make you happy and do those things every single day or bring those things back into your life, whatever they are make sure you are doing your best to make yourself happier by bringing those things into your life even more. Alternatively write a list of things that are causing you stress, once you've written this list you'll probably feel more of a weight lifted off your shoulders and you can help banish them out of your life for good. Whatever it is that's bringing you down or causing you stress clearly isn't healthy for you and you need to do what's good for your health and get rid of any negativity.

Set Goals -
Think about the things that inspire you and help bring those towards yours goals. Even if they're small goals, any accomplishment shouldn't go unnoticed. Be proud of yourself and what you achieve, so make these goals regularly and you'll learn to praise yourself more. You could even begin to make a list of goals for every month and try to achieve everything by the end of the month, without it turning back on you and causing you any stress by trying too hard to achieve the goals that you've set.

Take It Easy -
Take more time to relax and have time for yourself. If you work long hours or are generally just a busy person and find yourself stressing over the silliest things, then you need to take a break. Run and hot bath, use your favourite bath bombs and have a pamper session, listen to some chilled out music and make yourself some tea and take that time alone to help feel better and forget about your worries.

De-clutter -
Take a day off or take a few hours out of your day to de clutter. Clean up your work space, your home and things like your emails and papers. If you need to de clutter mentally, then detach yourself from people that are bringing you down. Anyone who says things behind your back, makes rude comments or even if they're people you wish you never got involved with, just detach yourself from them slowly. You don't need people like that in your life.

Write -
Start keeping a journal of your day to day life. This will help you mentally, knowing what you need to be doing and also helping yourself keep track of what you've been up to if you want to look back on it. Commit to writing in a journal every night as something to keep your mind off of things. I find that when I spend time writing literally anything, especially my blog, it helps me detach from my daily life and have that time to myself to write whatever I want and forget about anything that's got me worried.

I know these were pretty simple tips, but maybe try adapting these however you want and adding them to your day to day life. You need to find what works for you and take things slow. If you're confused about what you're doing career wise, relationship wise, or life in general, or if you're upset about anything then I hope these tips helped you one way or another.
