Have you ever felt that your energy is stuck? Maybe you feel apathetic, confused, don´t know where to start. You don´t feel like working and doing things you should do. It can be all from the daily routines like washing the dishes, cleaning up, to things you need to do at work etc. You´re feeling like having a bad day. Nothing feels really tempting right now. Or maybe you´ve had some resistance and things are not going your way. Continue reading, there are things you can do.
I´m fortunate to be quite free in my work, cause I´m working online a lot. I really love my work, but sometimes it can happen that I feel totally stuck. I have no ideas or creativity at all. I have a lot of things I should be doing: Writing blogs, shooting videos etc but sometimes that “want-feeling” is not there. Do you remember the blog post I wrote about following your cycle? That we are following our cycle when it comes to how we feel. Well, so I guess that sometimes I´m in a non-creative day of the cycle, (fortunately not so often having the best job ☺ ). But there are things you can do when this happens. When you get stuck:
1. Do it anyway
You didn´t see that coming did you?! Yes, how many times have I not felt like not working or doing things I don´t feel like doing, having a huge resistance to it. But if you start with the task anyway and go from there, the chances are pretty high you´ll continuing as nothing has happened and feeling the positive energy coming. This has happened to me a lot. This post is a proof of that.
2. Do something completely different
Step away for a while and stop thinking about what you should do. The word in itself, should, is really not a positive word. It´s like forcing yourself to do something you don´t want to do. Instead ask yourself what you are going to do. And while thinking about that, do something completely different, like watering your plants, take a warm nice epsom salt bath, go for a walk, listening to some music, do breathing exercise that gives you energy or chat with your friends. Doing this can make you come up with some new ideas and positive energy again.
3. Do things that uplift you
My experience, when I´m stuck and am in that kind of negative energy, is to do things that uplift me. It can be small things like going out in the sun, baking or shopping. Today I have decided to find a new plant and replace the old cactus that died. Maybe it doesn´t sound much, but I´m really looking forward buying a new plant. It can also be some work related things I actually feel like doing but they are not on my priority list right now. The purpose of getting into a positive energy, getting uplifted, and this is my own theory, is that you´ll attract good things and it will be easier to start from another energy level.
4. Don´t get frustrated
Now, getting frustrated or angry at your self is not a good solution. Some days can be bad other good, that´s life. Allow yourself to do things you love, you´ll have benefits from that in the future. And hey, you don´t need to be perfect all the time.
So get your positive energy flowing and be kind to yourself!
