Friday was a breath of fresh air, literally. I walked outside and took in the sunshine and vitamin D and breathed a bit easier with temperatures reaching almost sixty! But the sunshine and the Spring-like weather couldn't keep me from my funk for very long. February seems to be the time of year for many people I know, including fellow writing major IC alum Ashley who has written about it on her blog. Her openness about it has helped me write this.
I don't think I'm going to magically make the funk disappear entirely; the biggest thing that I'm struggling with is sleep and my sleep schedule. I had stopped drinking coffee for a year and starting drinking it again this past Fall. I have made a decision to lay off the coffee and drink more tea and see if that helps. But...
Here are some things I have been doing to help with my funk:
*Stick to a workout routine
*Add spinning class to workout routine
*Practice yoga every day, even if it's only a few poses to help stretch.
*Paint my nails regularly
*Cook more meals at home
*Take time to meditate, get quiet with myself.
*Find something to be grateful for every day.
What are you grateful for today? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment below and I will compile a list and write about this again.
