It’s Okay To Be In A Slump

TAKING TIME OUT

______
W

e all go through those little periods where nothing comes naturally to us, when we’d rather be curled up in bed doing absolutely nothing and not getting frustrated at ourselves for not having the motivation to do anything. If you don’t know what I mean then you’re either extremely lucky, or just simply lying to yourself. But being in a motivational slump isn’t always a bad thing. This post is possibly the ‘other perspective’ from my last post where I was encouraging you to get up and go, as it’s not always that easy.

I’ve not so much been in a “slump” this week, but more of a “creative block”, and despite all the blog post ideas I have and notes I’ve made the ability to actually put my ideas into words is not coming to me as smoothly as it otherwise would. Usually for me, when I enter this sort of mood it means I’ve been overworking myself and with the last two weeks being extremely busy, that does sort of seem very fitting.
It’s okay to hit these slow areas in our lives, but it’s what we do with them and how we let them affect us which is the most important.
What I do when I hit one of these patches is just try my best to carry on with everything as best as I can, write the best posts I can and continue with my normal routine; but also look for some more inspiration and enthusiasm, whether it be by just going out and taking a long walk and some photographs for a post, or listening to some music and writing out what I can.
What do you do when you’re in a bit of a slump?
