It’s easy to cop out on day/night posts by just adding some sparkle and a heel to an outfit to take it to it’s nighttime look. I tried to think this one through a little more and put some effort into both looks, an attitude that I’m also trying to take on in my life. A couple of weeks ago, when I wrote about the hardships of owning a business, I alluded to what a tough time I’ve been having lately. However, the other night, my husband and I had a long and inspiring conversation about how I need to get back into my groove and the steps I need to take to do that.
One of those steps is putting a lot more effort into things that I’ve lately been half-assing because of the funk that I hadn’t been able to shake. Even doing just that over the last few days has completely changed my attitude and the way I feel every day. Yesterday, for example, I planned out all of the meals that I’m going to cook for the week (I make dinner most nights and leftovers serve as lunch the next day), bought all of the groceries I needed for those meals, and did the prep (chopped vegetables, de-frosted chicken, etc) to make it easier when I’m inevitably not in the mood to cook at some point before Friday.
My big picture plan this week is to work out more, eat well, go out less, stick to my to-do lists, cook more, and only work on projects and attend events that will further my business and enrich my life. Sometimes I get caught up in trying to go to every single press preview, take every meeting, and say yes to every proposal but this week marks a change which I’m hoping will continue to uplift me.
What do you do when you’re in a funk? Do lists and planning work for you too or do you have another solution? I’d love to know!
