How has your week been?
…doesn’t matter because it’s the weekend!!
(sike it matters, you matter, I love you, wholesome content only)
How was your Easter? What did you do? Did you get April fooled? Where you doing the one that was doing the April Foolery? Let me know how it went. My Easter was so so good, my family and I went out for lunch and no one April fooled me 😦 (I wanted to be..)
We thank Jesus for dying for us and giving us another chance even though we didnt deserve it. Thanks Jesus (woohoooOoOOoOo0)
Anyway today’s post is a guide of how to get back on your feet after you’ve had a mental slump. What’s a mental slump? That period where you’re lazy, unfocused and unmotivated, you ask yourself what’s the point and why are you even doing the things you do and you feel like you’re watching your life fall apart but you cant do anything about it. Coming out of a mental slump feels so good but can sometimes be overwhelming because you don’t even know where to start, and that’s why you’re reading this post right now so let’s get straight into it.
- Do your dirty dishes.
You don’t realize how much of a burden dirty dishes are until your sink is nice and empty so put some indie tunes on and get those dishes done.
Being in your mental slump, you probably haven’t been eating a lot and if you are, it probably has been food that isn’t good for you, or is frozen. Which is why cooking and eating a fresh meal feels so good. If you don’t like cooking (I feel your pain), the hardest part is starting, once you get started and have glorious food on your plate, you’ll find that it was totally worth it. Cooking also gives you this odd sense of having your life together already so there you go.
3. Clean your room.
Whether we want to admit it or not, a messy room is very inconvenient (trust me I know) and sure in its messy state you might know where everything is but it’s not the same story when you’re in a hurry to get out the door and all of a sudden, you can’t find your keys. Having a tidy room helps you get into that fresh, organized #bosslady or #bossman zone a lot quicker.
4. Go over your goals and re-write them.
When in a mental slump we often completely forget our goals because we’re so busy trying to do the bare minimum (get up, get dressed, go to class, do assignments) and that’s why it’s extremely hard to stay motivated because you’re just doing the bare minimum and you don’t even know why you’re doing it, everything just seems so pointless. Looking at your goals, and re-writing them a couple times helps to motivate you because as you look over them, you can imagine yourself checking them all off and you imagine how you’d feel checking them off and that is such a strong motivator.
5. Fill in your planner/calendar.
I really like this task because even though it’s such an easy task, it’s very helpful. Filling in all the plans and events you have into your planner/calendar helps you get into a productive state of mind. It helps you feel organized and it helps you feel motivated enough to move on to more difficult tasks. If you don’t have a planner or a calender (get one) you can always make a list of all the things you need to get done and when you need to get it done by and just check that off as you go.
So those are 5 things you can do when you’re just out of a mental slump and you don’t even know where to start, I also encourage watching an encouraging preaching as well as “productivity” videos on YouTube.
I hope you found this helpful, let me know in the comments what things you do to help you get your life back on track.
