I used to let unproductive mornings destroy my productivity for the day.
They’d happen maybe two or three times a month. Everytime they’d happen, I’d label the day as a lost day in my head.
I’d try to get back into it unsuccessfully only to get anxious AF for falling behind on my work.
Turns out getting out of a funk consistently is a skill that can be practiced.
It’s all trial and error though.
You gotta throw spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks.
Maybe for you to get out of a funk you meditate. Maybe you do 20min of yoga. Or go for a walk.
I know someone who lights up a scented candle that takes him straight to his happy place.
Sometimes that’s all it takes.
Lighting up a candle to rekindle a happy emotion.
For me though, I have a whole ‘I feel shitty today’ routine that I do to snap out a negative state. It goes like this:
- Feel grateful for something in my life. Today it was the filtered clean water from my Brita. Really feel it. Let the gratitude envelope your entire body.
- 21 push ups. Why 21? It’s my favorite number. That’s why.
- Blast my favorite music and dance like there’s nobody watching. Today I put on ‘1,2 Step’ by Ciara.
And I’m happy to report I snapped right out of it.
