Take a Moment for Yourself
Why is it that we sometimes have gloomy days?
What are gloomy days you may ask? In my opinion they are those days when we can't seem to find the energy or mind set to do the tasks we set for ourselves. Everything seems to cause us irritation and we cannot get much of anything done.
We know we should shake this mood and get moving, but that is not happening as fast as we would like it to.
What to do on days like this? What I have found works best is to step back for a while and regroup. Taking a nap, listening to music, reading a personal development book or listening to a motivational speaker are all things that I have found work well to reverse this mental state.
Be Gentle With Yourself
If you love the outdoors or live on an Island like I do, then take a hike in the park or visit the beach and just relax with nature for a while. Nature is a great teacher and healer and the best part is she never asks anything in return.
There is much that we could learn about ourselves and our surroundings by just sitting quietly and observing nature. I have always found looking out to sea on a clear day very calming.
Sometimes we feel like we are behind in our deadlines and schedules and the thought of taking any time away from our business scares us. We need not worry too much, since the simple act of taking a time out might be what we need to clear the fog. Taking a time out could be what gives us new eyes to look at things with and help us move forward.
We all have had these types of days and we have all found ways to deal with them rebound and carry on.
Whenever you feel like you are having a gloomy day, stepping back and regrouping could be the simple answer to get you back on track. Just find something fun to immerse yourself in for a while, let your hair down so to speak. Most of all be gentle with yourself, your family, your business and your sanity will thank you for it.
