For the past week, I have been feeling like I have no energy to do anything. So have been just in this not-so-productive lull. I just don’t know where the hours in the day go. They just pass me by and I feel like I got nothing done, which feels even worse.
When I woke up this morning, I was feeling the same. So, I thought about all the things I needed to do, that had been pending, made a mental list and then the same lull started creeping in again.. i was feeling tired and had a bunch of reasons I couldn’t do all these things.
And then I started reasoning with myself logically – I told myself, I am not physically sick where I can’t move, I can move and I can do all these things realistically, the only thing preventing me from doing all the things I needed done was my feelings (the little voice saying “I can’t, I’m tired….”)
So…. I decided to change how I was feeling, by accepting all the things I was feeling but letting it go and telling myself I needed to get out of this downward lull and be productive again which would make me ‘feel’ like myself again.
So, after 15 minutes of transitioning my feeling from “I don’t wanna do anything” to “I will start feeling better and like myself again” was a good one. Because so far, I have done my laundry, changed the linen and also washed those, washed dishes, made lunch and swept the kitchen. I still have more things I plan on accomplishing today!
In this battle of mind vs. feeling, made myself feel like I’m winning😁
What are some of the things you do to make yourself feel better when in a lull? How do you get yourself to become productive again when you are feeling low? Would love to hear from you all.
Stay Curious & Have a Peaceful & Happy Sunday!
