    Default How do you get yourself out of a funk?

    I am feeling so overwhelmed with full time work in a new job with little guidance, 2 kids, a somewhat needy (but very helpful, appreciative and loving) husband. I feel so flat a lot of the time, little motivation even though I *want* to give 100% to everything, I have no energy to put the wheels in motion. I could have 8 hours sleep and wake up exhausted. I feel stressed and lost so much of the time.

    So tell me, when you feel this way how do you get yourself out of it? I need a mental health break from life ATM!

    I give myself a weekend or 2x weekdays off work/home and just sleep/go out to lunch and do all my favourite things. Then I make a short term plan of how I want to feel in 1month. I've what makes me happy, what makes me joyful etc. then make sure I do at least 1-2x a week that fulfills my soul.

    Sunshine helps me so getting outside for a little walk or time with the kids. I've found just finishing a couple of hours early every now and again has really helped as well - I love spending time with my kids and having what feels like bonus time helps me.

    Oh and a bath most nights keeps me happy too. Less housework gets done but I'm happy and relaxed which makes it worth it.
