Funk: How to Get Out of It

I swear, the last couple of days I’ve been in such a funk. It’s not with everything in my life, just my goals and ambitions. It’s like the day-to-day is taking every bit of energy and I don’t have anything left for thinking about where I want to go instead of just the step in front of me. Meh.

I think we all go through this point every once in a while, where just the daily motions seems like more work and Netflix and Nap seems more enjoyable. It’s tough to break the cycle.

For those of you following my lazy lead, here are some ways to help you get back on track and get moving again (aka I needed this post right now).

Write down your goals.

Just simply writing down what you want to accomplish and making it come to the front of your mind is big. It can change your whole perspective and priorities. Being in a funk can totally drown out what’s most important to you, so making it extra obvious will help you realize what you’re working for.

Do one big thing.

Take a leap. Post that one big post, reach out to that one mentor, do something actionable and irreversible. The first step is always the hardest, so just put all your energy in to getting that little foot up and moving. It might not be perfect or go exactly as planned, but now that you’re moving you can adjust and correct.


This is biggest and most important thing, and it boils down into four main things:

Eating Right

Drinking Lots of Water

Getting Your Sleep


Yes, it’s that easy and simple and difficult, all at the same time. Eat lots of veggies and protein, drink half your body weight in ounces, get your zzz’s, and take a walk. Taking care of yourself will give you the energy you need to snap your self of out zombie mode and get going.

As I’m writing this (and thinking that all of these are things I need to work on too!) I realize how simple these tips are. It’s not rocket science, but it is easily forgotten and can make a huge impact on how you feel and how you work.

Spend some time and effort trying to get back on your feet and you will get back there, I’m positive.


Let me know what you think!
