In this blog, it is important to me to share ways of finding positive focuses in life, whether it is through travel, or your wellness journey. One thing that is so crucial is to know how to get out of a slump, and I honestly think that by really working on this, you can have a lot of positive changes happen day by day.
To me, I feel like a slump is nervous energy that is not directed in an encouraging manner. If you are an over thinker, or if you dwell on certain situations, this can be more prevalent. It is definitely possible to counteract this behavior, especially if you work on it every day. Someone once told me, if you have that nervous energy it is okay, it just means that you care a lot about something. It is just important to figure out ways to use that energy!
The first step is honestly to prioritize your goals, and what you need to get done. There are obviously necessities such as working, maintaining good hygiene habits, and the day to day tasks that we all have. I have found it extremely helpful, throughout my life, to make a list. You will want to write down things that you have to get done immediately, then short term and long term goals. You will feel very accomplished after completing each thing, and this will encourage a confidence too! For example, as a blogger I may have the goal of writing at least one post a week, so every week on a certain day, I am blocking out time to write.
Once you have your list and action goals you will want to see what works with your particular situation. Honestly, you may want to go about it slowly. (An example of this would be to add one positive action in your day to day routine, even if it is just ten minutes.) Or you could also go all in, and I think that the approach can vary due to personal preference. You may want to experiment with it and see what works for you!
When I am overthinking a project, work task, or house cleaning, I feel a weight being lifted off of me after I start going for it. In any manner, it is a good idea to have that balance of rest, healthy habits, daily goals, or any changes that you want to implement.
I hope this post motivates you in a positive direction in your life! Let me know in the comments what your goals are as well, and I will be rooting for you! Remember to click that subscribe button and have a wonderful day!

One of my absolute favorite wellness and self-improvement books is “Atomic Habits” by James Clear. I personally recommend this book because it details how to create systems in your life that help change your habits to meet your own goals. He reviews ideas from psychology, biology, and neuroscience to create a guide for making good habits inevitable.
Personally, I have enjoyed using this system to really shift my mindset around adding more whole foods to my diet, getting into a healthy morning routine, and exercising more. I do feel better as a result, but I really think that the principles outlined in this book can be applied to many areas of our lives. It really brought to my attention on how small habits really do impact your life, and by building on them, you will have this amazing fundamental unit of your overall system.
