We all become stuck in an energy rut from time-to-time.
We feel sluggish run down, out-of-balance, or feel as though we have lost our mojo. Our routines become ordinary and mundane. Sometimes we blame our family, friends, environment and work for NOT making and keeping us happy; but what if it isn’t any of those things? What if it comes down to how you are living your life? The question you must ask yourself is, “are you living a life that makes you feel happy and authentic?”
Identify the external influences that drain us.
These impacts can cause insecurities, and questions surface such as, “Am I a good person? Am I a good parent? Am I a good worker? Am I good enough?” Society and mainstream media have conditioned us to compete, (not necessarily in a good way), with others and as well as with ourselves.
To keep up, we must act, look, think, and do things in a manner that are acceptable to others. We become slaves to “conventional” living. Our lives have become so programmed that we have forgotten how to listen to our inner wisdom. We become reliant on others as to how we should live and act. We don’t express our opinions due to fears of being criticized or ostracized. Instead of standing in our light, we hide in our shadows.
So, how do we break the cycle?
The first step is to accept who we are and welcome our limitations and imperfections. By overcoming our fears, we can break the repetitious cycle, and begin trusting our natural instincts so that we can become who we truly are. We all can figure things out for ourselves, but the fear of making a mistake keeps us living in a world of status quo.
It takes courage to make any life changes, whether large or small. Minor changes are just as powerful as significant changes, but you have to start somewhere! For example, if you are a person who doesn’t like to exercise, consider adding 15-minute walks into your wellness routine. Or if you usually go out to dinner on Sunday, consider going on Friday or Saturday instead. If you haven’t called your best friend in 10 years, pick up the phone to reconnect. By changing your habits and routine, this will not only add variety, but this can begin a chain reaction to change.
Here are tips for dealing with the energy rut:
