Let me start by saying I’m the queen of letting a dull uninspired mindstate get the best of me. We all have those days don’t we? Where we want to lay around and binge watch real housewives and dream of fancy, warm vacays, bottomless mimosas for breakfast. But unfortunately that shit doesn’t pay the bills. Well, not in my life it doesn’t.
So what do you do when you can’t write, create, think straight etc. Before I started this blog I was having a massive 3.0 writers block and let me tell you it’s V V ANNOYING. Like helloooo, why does it feel like there is a cute, white fluffy kitten patting a ball of red string around inside my head? It’s excruciatingly hard to concentrate some days.
I wanted to make a “how to” post about how you can instantly clear your head and get down to the nitty gritty.
Step 1: I do this every morning in my living room but it’s nice to do in a small space if you’re trying to have some quiet inspo time. Essential oils. Wether you use a diffuser or prefer some quick spray or roll on scents, my favorites currently are citrus flavors. Lemon, grapefruit and sweet orange. Citrus oils are great for enhancing your mood and help reduce feelings of anxiety and irritability. They also boost your mental energy levels and pep you the fuck up! Perfect right?!
Step 2: Breathing. Kinda need to breathe to live I know but how often do you actually just sit or lay down and have some really good breathes? Taking 5-10 mins to focus on just breathing with your belly and not your chest is so fulfilling (see what I did there?) No seriously though, it feels SO good. I like to imagine white and pink sparkly light coming in through my nose and filling up my belly as I breathe in, breathe in alllllll the way, hold it for a couple seconds and exhale. As you exhale imagine all that same white and pink sparkly, magical light is being released through your mouth, along with whatever worries, bad thoughts and negative energy you were harbouring inside you.
Step 3: Next I like to put on a few tracks and dance around in my room aka in front of mirror like a total idiot. You gotta get that blood flowing and what’s better than shaking your cute ass. Maybe I’m old but remember Electric Circus on much music circa 1999? I use to watch that religiously and dance like a maniac in my room with my door barricaded so my nosey older brothers couldn’t come in and bust me living my best life.
So there it is! Some super easy, super cheesy but effective ways to get out of your slump.
