Not all days are good days. The past 2 days have been kind of junky, if I’m being honest, but that’s okay. I was in a funk and I’m slowly climbing out of it. I like to be upbeat on here and that’s mostly because I’m usually in a very good mood. I’m an extremely positive person and I look for the good in all situations, but sometimes the good is hard to see!
What do you do when you’re in a funk?
I’m letting myself feel the feels and then my deadline for getting out of this is this afternoon. I did a scope on this, but I thought it would be appropriate to also do a post on it as well since many of you don’t do periscope.
Owning my own business, Blissful Eats, has its perks. I get to set my own hours, I get to connect with my customers (my favorite!!), I get to be creative on the daily. That’s all the fun stuff that I try to focus on. There are the hard parts too. They say success is a squiggly line and man that’s true!
Having a positive mindset is so important in life. I don’t think you can be successful if you are not a positive person. I hope that you all know I’m here to be a positive influence and motivate you in anyway I can. I believe in abundance. We can all be successful, there’s no reason to be knocking people down. If I’m not your cup of tea, then great that’s fine, but that doesn’t mean I don’t wish you well. I believe women should support women. Lift each other up, don’t drag each other down.
I want to share with you what I do when I’m in a funk in hopes it will inspire you when you’re feeling off!Not all days are good days. 5 ways to lift your mood! Click To Tweet
5 Ways to Lift Your Mood
- Remember your priorities. My number one priority is my family, my husband and my kids. If everything is good with them, then I really try to check myself. Yesterday I just stopped everything and sat outside with my family and just that alone made me feel better.
- Talk to people that lift you up. I have my little tribe of people that I go to for support and they come to me for support. Life is so much better when you can share not only your successes but your struggles. The food business is a funny place and having people who GET IT makes a huge difference.
- Listen to personal development. Every successful person will tell you that it’s a squiggly line. You’re going to have bad days and failures, but what’s important is what you learn from them and how you move forward. I try to listen to podcasts and scopes that will pump me up. (Chalene Johnson, John Lee Dumas, Amanda Tress, Kim Garst, Lewis Howes.)
- Watch GREAT TV….or watch something that will make you laugh! Thank you Real Housewives of Orange County.
- Do something for someone else. Bake cookies or call a friend that you know needs it. Giving to someone else will end up making you feel good.
