How To Get Out of a Funk [Podcast]May 24, 2019
Are you in a funk, or do you just need to recharge?
Sometimes we feel like we’re in a dark place because we’re tired, overworked, stuck in our routine, sad about being single, and haven’t done anything in a long time that “sparks joy”, to reference Marie Kondo!
We need to take the time to enjoy our lives right now because we never know what’s going to happen tomorrow. Sometimes it’s as easy as going for a walk in nature, lighting some candles, or listening to your favorite songs with no other distractions (yes, put that phone away girl!!).
I dare you to ask yourself: are you waiting for something else to happen, or someone else to appear, before you really start to enjoy your life?
At the end of this podcast I want you to #fightthefunk by thinking of five small things you can get excited about that you will actually do. Here are mine:
- Take a pottery class
- Go to the park more often
- Explore more of NYC
- Go to a wine and cheese tasting
- See the Hamptons this summer
If you need more inspiration, here’s a list of some simple, cheap (or FREE!) things you can do to help you #fighthefunk and be more present:
- Watch a movie
- Take a different way home or to work than you usually do
- Go to a coffee shop that is new to you
- Strike up a conversation with your check-out person at the store
- Walk barefoot in the grass, feel the earth
- Buy some plants or pick up gardening
- Go to a flea market
- Read a book
- Take a bubble bath
- Walk your dog in a new neighborhood
