Ever been in a funk?, I was yesterday, a real good one. It was probably working its way to the surface by my own actions. Basically like a habit a few nights before this I had not been getting enough sleep and coupled with a few other aspects it came down like a hammer yesterday morning.
I was exhausted and sleep deprived and I was in a bad damn mood, I let this go on for probably 70-80% of the day. When I got home my bomb wife pulled it out of me and I really came to the conclusion that the culprit was the accumulation of multiple (mostly) physical aspects over that last handful of days.
Just so where are clear,
Emotions can have a physiological response, right? For instance if you become suddenly stressed by the boss at work has just dictated a new deadline on a project that you feel is impossible, your body will react to that. Your blood pressure will rise, you may start sweating and so on.
On the flip side,
Physical changes can affect our emotions, like what has happened to me. Through the week I became more and more sleep deprived and little by little without my noticing I woke up in one bad ass mood. It seemed like everything that day just kept contributing to the situation.
Certainly this was all allowed to happen by me, and I take all the credit for my miserable mood. I was not present in my situations and I certainly was not “on my game”.
.. oh wait, I forgot this is a motivational podcast right? I sure hope that’s what you were thinking.
So what was done to
Get the funk out
Shut the funk down
First I acknowledged that there I was in a funk, my wife not only acknowledged in great detail and is really the only person I talk to.
Second: Remember you plan for the future; remember what you are out to do. What is it that gets you excited for the future? I had to refocus on these things and remind myself that I am in this for the long game.
Third: Notice! I am doing a good job, not giving myself any damn credit for my accomplishments. Really I think this just came now to forgetting to love myself for all that I and and all that I am doing
Fourth: I took the night off and got some sleep (with some assistance from melatonin)
Then I woke up this morning a bit tired but really damn motivated to get on the right track again, and slowly but surely here I am. Still a bit tired but now full of resolve.
So let’s recap
- Find someone to confide in.
- Game plan recall
- Take credit
- Rest damn it
