I Have had a few days this week where I haven’t felt like my energetic self. Lacking motivation to crush it at work, energy to lift big at the gym and just not feeling like my best self. In general I’m fine and this feeling very rarely happens to me (like I haven’t felt this way in over a year). When I’ve shared how I feel with my people, they’ve reminded me that it’s ok to need a few days every once in a while and that we can’t always operate at pure hustle mode….I struggle to acknowledge this and apply great pressure to keep up the pace. But alas, I think my people are right.
So, what am I doing to combat the little funk I find myself in:
Don’t over think it - Maybe it’s simply a case of PMS, maybe you aren’t eating enough, maybe your brain is tired…there doesn’t need to be a specific reason so don’t tire yourself out more trying to figure it out.
Take care of yourself - overdose on vitamin C, maybe you’re fighting something, buy yourself a bunch of tulips and sit on the couch looking at them, wear your robe all day on Saturday, push yourself to workout anyways, eat really healthy….and then buy a pint of ice cream, take that ice cream and eat it in the bath…just take good care of yourself and let some of the typical rules loosen up.
Don’t wallow - Ok, your energy is a little lower and you aren’t full of pep and zing, THAT’S OK! Just work away at the projects you have going, keep living life and if it lingers…give yourself a talking to or get BAE to do it for you. Then, figure out if something more serious is up (are you sick, are you depressed, are you burnt out) and if not, shake it off babe!
These are the times of life where the work you’ve done to get to know yourself, to understand where you find your energy and what makes you the best versions of yourself will pay off. Remind yourself of those things and do them. Get to the beach, wander your city, find a good view etc. whatever fuels you, lean on it today! The city is one for me, and so, I will wander aimlessly with a coffee in hand and not a care in the world. #pnwonderland #vancitynow #styleoftheday #mustbevancouver #wiwt #outfitfromabove #fashiondiaries #lookoftheday #instastyle #streetwear #ootdmen #girlboss #menstyle #downtownvancouver #iphonesia #iphoneonly #corporatetn #outfitoftheday #simplefits #snobshots #womensfashionblog #fashiongram #urbanfashion #yvr #iphoneography #lookbook #fblogger #fashionkiller #pnw
