The other day, I was chatting to a friend about why I love doing yoga. I said, “I love that you can participate at whatever level you feel like in the same class. When I’m feeling awesome, I kick every pose up a notch. And when I’m feeling like a slug, I can take it easy.
My friend (half-joking) asked, “Wait. YOU have days where you feel like a slug?
Of course I do! It doesn’t matter how energetic, upbeat or strong you usually are… there are going to be days where you feel like a slug.
The secret to picking yourself up
It’s normal to have days where you feel uninspired. When you just want to collapse on the sofa, you can still be productive. Let me share with you what I do.
When I’m planning my week, I make sure to add in required components. These are things that I will do basically no matter what. Go to yoga. Crochet something. Clean house.
When I’m feeling blah, I take the opportunity to do these things that don’t require inspiration. It’s a good time to take your daily walk. To weave in some ends on a project.
It’s not the time to come up with a new design. And that’s okay!
If you work through the times when you’re feeling uninspired, you’ll notice your energy coming back. You’ll be inspired again before you know it!
