I’m in a funk lately and I want to get out of it. This isn’t the first time it’s happened along our journey and it probably won’t be the last. I realized how bad it was this weekend when I walked right past my son when he was asking me a question. I didn’t even hear him. To be honest, I’m not sure what I was thinking about. All I know was that I “wasn’t there.”
We went out and about on Sunday to enjoy a nice spring day. The snow is melting and the waterfalls in the area are flowing full steam. While I enjoyed explaining the ways of the natural world to my son, I still wasn’t 100% there. Even when we stopped and played a game of catch in a bare field, it felt like I was having an out of body experience. Hard to describe.
Funks are not fun. Gosh I want out of this one. This is not the time to be in one with a new business venture looming. I have to get on the ball here. My husband is doing more than his share and I should be working on my part.
I’m not sure if there was a trigger for this funk, but I need to get out of it. Thanks to the internet, I found some information that might be helpful to others that are feeling a bit funky, no matter the cause.
About.com gives 10 ideas. My favorites are talking a walk, doing a random act of kindness and spending time with children. While I’ve done all three lately, they haven’t broken me out of the funk I’ve been in. But I smiled more than if I didn’t do those things.
I think the main thing now is to try to keep active, get a good night’s sleep, and try to relax a little. I also need to remember that even though we are still in debt, we have come a long way since 2005. We have a lot to be thankful for.
