Hello and Happy Thursday!
I don’t know what it is, but I have been extra tired all week and this morning I woke up in a funk. I didn’t feel like running or working or blogging or being happy. Boo. b
I even put my shirt on inside out. Monica, get it together!
I wanted to just feel sorry for myself, skip my run and eat a dozen donuts for breakfast but I decided I should at least get out for a few miles. I told myself, “It doesn’t have to be a long run or a fast run, but you’ll feel better if you do something.”
So, I did a very slow 5 miles and do feel a little bit better now
And I am on a mission to get out of this rut! I think part of it is the time change making me tired and part of it is I’m stressed about my workload this week. On my run I thought of ways to be happy!
How to Fight the Funk:
> Get some exercise – but pick your favorite kind so it’s pleasant not torture. Anything works – walking, bowling, snorkeling. Just move!
> Call a friend and tell them, “I have some super bad news… hope you’re sitting down… your mom………..‘s birthday is in June right? Because I was thinking we should take her out to Chippendale’s…”
> Walk your dog. Or take someone else’s dog for a walk and don’t tell them. Then, when you get back they’ll think their dog was lost and you found him! You might even get a reward.
