Stuck In A Rut? Need Motivation?

5 years ago

I hope everyone`s weekend has been going good so far. As for myself, so far so good. I accomplished more than anticipated, which feels good. I thought it would be nice to do a weekly inspiration/motivation post. Hopefully, I can stick with this new regiment. I can barely keep up with my hauls and reviews already.

I`ve decided that this year, I`m going to get out of this rut. Anyone else out there feel this way, or is it just me?

Here is pretty much how my typical routine is:
Full time work Monday through Friday
Occasionally run errands or do some shopping after work. I think I do this more than needed and this is turning into an expensive activity.
Cook. For those of you who loves cooking can you please tell me how? I just don`t find any enjoyment in it.
Help my youngest with homework when needed.
Work on my blog, reviews, and posts. That also includes taking a ton of pictures and editing them, and testing products. This blog has done a pretty good job at keeping me busy and keeping my mind off of things.
Spam comments on Luuux so I can earn my points. This is very tedious and a lot of bitch work, excuse my French, but anyone who is on it knows what I mean.
Sleep. I`m a bit of an insomniac and I get an average of 5 hours of sleep on the week days.
One thing I`ve added to my boring routine since last September is exercise. I`m happy to say that I`ve been pretty consistent with it.

So that`s pretty much my current life in a nutshell. Am I a person who likes to stick with her comfort zone? The answer is yes and no. Yes because I think it`s human nature to want to stay where they feel comfortable. No because I`m very passionate about life. I only have one life to live and I want to live it in a meaningful way.

In order to get out of this rut, it starts with your mind set. I had to rethink of the ways I used to think and here are some of the issues I`ve identified.

1.Stop making excuses. I think that everyone can relate to that. We all have an excuse for the things that we do or don`t do. Identify what your concerns are and find a resolution for them instead of letting the excuse hold you back. One of my main excuse is money. I always think that having fun involves money and perhaps it does depending on what it is but I`m pretty sure that if I do my research, there has got to be some affordable ways to have a good time.
2.Take small steps. You don`t have to completely change your routine but set a goal and start with the changes you think you can handle. I think I need to make myself a list so I can track my progress.
3.Don`t wait for others. That`s a tough one. I`d prefer to share the experience with someone. I`m gonna try not to hold back anymore, even if that means doing it alone. I`d like to thank a new friend for the advice.
4.Confidence. Mine always bounces up and down. Truth is I don`t get easily hurt or offended by others but I am my biggest critic. I try not to be too harsh with myself, which is something I have a tendency to do.

I think I`ve touched on the basic issues that I have so I`m going to work on them. I don`t know if this post was motivational but hopefully insightful at least.

Any advice or suggestions you have to get out of a rut?
