Your get up and go, has got up and went!! (One of my dad’s sayings, sorry!)
I really experienced that recently.
I am just like you guys out there. I am living a busy life and sometimes, just keeping up with everything that is going on is draining!
My husband and I have 2 businesses, that we have been really pushing hard to get growth and more profits, we have 3 small kids that are not sleeping well at the moment, and I can’t even remember the time when I sat on the couch and just watched TV without being on the computer working too!
Life is constant, sometimes very stressful, and really taxing!
I normally handle it very well, but over the last few days, I had been in a slump.
I didn’t want to work on our businesses, I didn’t want to think about connecting with anyone, I was short tempered with our kids, my husband took one look and ducked and I just didn’t want to do anything.
All I could think about was that I have not had full nights sleep for at least a month now, if I guess, and it is a guess, because I don’t remember!
All I could think about was having everyone go away, letting me sleep, sit on the couch, watch what I wanted, eat chocolate and just CHILL.
So I did just that and got my mojo back!!
All it took was a glass of wine, a jar of Nutella and a spoon, British X Factor, some tissues and watching people lay it all on the line. Who knew?!!
Everyone was in bed. I was supposed to work on our next product, but instead I set myself up with everything I listed above and through watching others chase their dreams, give it their all, some win and some lose, I realized how good I have it and a lack of sleep just clouded that for a while.
So here are some tips for you to try, so that you may also be blessed enough to really see the big picture and get your mojo back.
- Give yourself permission to stop and relax.
- Let go of the guilt that you feel by stopping. It does not serve you.
- Surround yourself with some of your favorite things.
- Shift your focus from yourself onto something you enjoy.
- Breathe and just be.
Have a laugh. Get some exercise. Listen to music. Cook something. Sit in nature. Hug a pet. Chat to someone. Meditate. Drink wine. Whatever makes your soul sing, is what you should do.
Give yourself that gift. You are worth it and you deserve it.
