3 Easy Ways to Get Out of a Rut!

Feeling down and in a rut happens to all of us.

It’s unavoidable as far as I’m concerned!

So above all, don’t beat yourself up on the days you’re feeling a bit down.

But on top of that, today I want to share 3 little tricks I’ve picked up over the years…

That help me bounce back and get going again 🙂

1. Learn Something New

Even if it’s just for 15 minutes…

I find that putting my brain into action by trying to learn something snaps me back to normal almost every single time.

Maybe that’s 15 minutes of diving into one of the lessons inside DSF.

Or maybe it’s something completely unrelated!

The “what” doesn’t really matter.

Learning helps the brain get going again.

And I find that it’s the easiest way to get me feeling fresh and motivated…

Because all I want to do next is put those new lessons into action!

2. Create Something

This one’s a little harder to explain, so stick with me here.

When we have those feelings that we’re in a rut.

And when motivation’s low and we just feel exhausted.

Our instinct is to spend time consuming.

That might be watching TV, reading a book, or listening to music.

Don’t get me wrong, those aren’t necessarily bad things!

But one of the easiest ways I’ve found to pull myself out of a rut…

Is to do the opposite, and create something!

It doesn’t have to be anything complicated either.

Even simple things like taking a photo, or cooking some tasty new recipe you’ve had saved on your phone will work!

Again, the “what” doesn’t really matter much here.

It’s all about the action of taking resources we have…

And combining them with our talents to create something else!

3. Spend time with your family

Ok, this one might sound a little obvious.

But in today’s world when we’re all so busy, basically all the time…

It can be easy to lose sight of why we’re doing all this in the first place.

Spending time with my family helps me re-center.

It reminds me of the things that matter most in life.

And after a few good laughs, or time spent simply catching each other up on what’s going on in our lives…

I always feel recharged, refocused, and ready to go 🙂

Ok, that’s all I have for you today!

Hope this helps next time you feel like you’re in a bit of a rut.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Your brother in Christ,
