There have been a couple of days since I being back from Costa Rica where I just feel down. In a funk(ytown). When I step back and look at the reasons why I feel this way, it is almost always a lack of exercise and sleep that really puts me over the edge. Other people around me have also been in a funk or feeling down, so I thought I would make a list of the things that have helped me most during these times. I also think, subconsciously or consciously, I am making a list as my own personal reminder of things that I can do to snap out of it.
HOW TO SNAP OUT OF IT
Be honest with yourself and the people around you about how you feel.
Don’t deny or feel embarrassed of how tired you are.
Take some deep breaths – preferably through an activity.
ONLY listen to happy music.
Remind yourself that we are slowly coming out of winter and of course you feel insane.
Remember all the cool friends you have and how much people care about you!
You will feel totally differently tomorrow – trust me.
Go to a group meditation.
Don’t spend more time alone than you really need.
Watch physical comedy in any form.
