5 easy steps to keep going. Again.

5 easy steps to get going. Again.

One of the worse days to have is when you have a list of things to do, the motivation and determination to do your work, but feel not quite 100% or even 70%. You do not feel ill; you are not sad; you are fine but something is niggling at you but you can not seem to put your finger on it.  Well this seems to be one of those days. It is frustrating to say the least. Had a productive day yesterday. I started organising my wardrobe. Regretted not taking before shots so I can blog it, but hey I can still write about it. I also stated sorting out my sheets cupboard a few days ago. All these things are on my 30 days to do list. So there is progression and yet I feel so un-accomplished. It could be the fact that I am waiting on a confirmed appointment which is tomorrow 18.05.16 and no letter and no one is picking up the phone or that my to-do list in general is huge.

I am late on my Monday blog posts, so that does not feel too good. So as I sat to write a post with all my post ideas in front of me, nothing absolutely nothing came out. This negative feeling started to grow like wild-fire and as I kept looking at the time I can see it slipping away and having a non productive day. Then the panick sets in.

STOP! STOP! STOP!

When you start to feel your day spiraling out of control, you just have to stop all those thoughts.

I looked around and my environment is a mess.  My Craft room got the bed sheets I am going to dispose off. My desk and floor shelf is brought forward as my dad was fitting in a new central heating. My bedroom, well more sheets bits of clothes ready ro recycle. As you guessed it chaotic.

I also feel light-headed. Breakfast was 8 oz  of water first thing and a pineapple and kiwi smoothie. Usually keeps me going but not today.

I am also surfing the crimson tide in a few days.

Email for a last-minute rehearsal tonight and Sunday; for a gig on Monday. So I have rehearsals Tuesday for one singing group, Wednesday and Saturday and maybe Tuesday for our concert on Wednesday for  another.

THIS MUST BE THE REASON FOR MY SLUM.

I’M STARTING TO FEEL OVERWHELMED

Want to get back on track?

STEP ONE – Find the reason for the way you feel. The answers are out there. You need to dig deep.

STEP 2 – Once you’ve worked it out. Write it down. Then arrange them from 1 with 1 being the most frustrating obstacle.

STEP 3 – Make a small goal for the day. Or maybe just a few hours and  structure how you are going to accomplish them.

STEP 4 – This could be optional, but before you start you might be more productive if you take some time out to tune out or relax. (I am going to watch an episode of Angel). Take a minimum of 30 minutes. Don’t stress or think about all what you have to do. You might find yourself being frustrated in the next two hours anyway.

STEP 5 – Start on your list. You will start to feel better. The goal is to allow you to save your day and make it productive.

TIP

Always look on the bright side. I managed to get a post out of it.

Always find the positive in everyday. There is always one.
