Episode #40: 5 Tips to Get Out of a Rut

Do you ever feel like you have the blahs? Nothing is motivating, exciting, or interesting. You have things to do but don’t feel like doing them, and you’re probably kind of cranky. 

Even though I have all the tools to keep me motivated and striving for my goals, even I get like this sometimes. I think it’s just part of being human! There’s a lot going on in the world and our personal lives, and sometimes it’s hard to feel excited about things. 

While it may be cathartic to wallow in self-pity for a day now and again, I know that I’d rather be out enjoying life. That’s why when I felt like I was in a rut last week, I looked deep into my toolbox for my tried-and-true tips to break that funk. 

Listen in for my best five tips to get out of a rut before the mud hardens and you’re stuck for longer than you like. These are things you can do right now to break the doldrums and start feeling like yourself again.
