Funks happen, whether you are in a blogging funk, growing your business funk, whatever it is, funks happen to the best of us. Moving past it is what matters. How you do it, is up to you.
Getting Out of Your Business Funk
Own it. Just admit that you are in a funk. Say it, “I’m in a funk!” Now do something that makes you happy. Bake something delicious (and eat it of course!), go for a walk, visit friends, workout, whatever it is.
Figure it out. Any idea what caused your funk? Just come back from vacation and just want to be on vacation?
Get out of it. Start by taking care of yourself.
- Eat clean
- Get outside
- Be with people you love
Work on your own terms if you can. Write from your heart, don’t try to write about XYZ because everyone else is if its not something you are passionate about.
Set attainable goals and find a way to be accountable for your goals. Share them with friends, other business/blog minded people.
Just do it. Whatever it is you do, do it. It doesn’t have to be perfect, it doesn’t even have to be good, just do it, get yourself back into the groove of it. Push past any walls that may stand in your way. You don’t have to publish those pieces if they aren’t your best work, it’s just to get going.
Read something, preferably within your field/niche, something to get you thinking and your creative juices flowing.
What do you do when you’re in a funk? Do they happen at any particular time of the year?
