I don’t know about you but I will openly admit that I get knocked out of my groove now and again. I’m flying along, breezing through my work and building lots of content and products, and then all of a sudden BAM I'm flat on my butt in a rut. Its simply part of business, we truck along and then we get a mental block, we daw a blank, and we hit one of those walls they talk about in movies. It happens to all of us now and then but hiding the fact that were in a rut can actually only make the rut last longer.
This situation can be insanely frustrating because you KNOW you can be awesome, you know you have plans, you know you have dreams, but for some reason you're just spinning your wheels getting nowhere. So the question I keep getting asked is “How do I get UNSTUCK!”
I have 3 Tips to help you get unstuck
This is self explanatory. Put DOWN the work, close the laptop, turn off the tablet, hide the notebook, and walk away. You need to take a break now and then to just do something other than work on your projects or your business building. Now i’m not saying this needs to be for an extended period of time. But you do need to let your mind rest so that you can refresh and come back ready for business.
Take YOU time
Self care is very important in order to keep yourself sane. Maybe a little mommy pampering, maybe a night out with your SO, take a yoga class, go to the beach, take a hike, maybe you just need to sit in a tub full of bubbles and read a book thats on the “just for fun" list. Whatever your favorite relaxation/mind clearing technique is thats what you need to turn to during this time. When you are able to focus on something other than work it allows your mind to clear and reset.
Spend Time With The Kiddos
For a long time I would simply suggest you do something that just “makes you happy” but becoming a mom really changes your life and your way of thinking. When you start a business or you are successfully running your business as a mom your underlying motivation is your little balls of joy. The kiddos you gave life to become your reason for SOOOOO many things and sometimes we need to just stop and enjoy their laughter (or eye rolls if they're old enough). When we’re really struggling, we’re at a dead end, we have hit the proverbial brick wall we need to take a step back, breathe, and remember why we started out on this journey in the first place; the kiddos! Taking a brake to spend time with our rug-rats can not only distract our minds from the mental road block we come across but it can recharge us with purpose and drive.
Like I said, everyone gets stuck now and again, but you can NOT let it keep you down. Walk away, take some you time, and spend some time with the kiddos to recharge your batteries so that you can hit the ground running when you sit down to work next!
