Struggling already...January Blues?
Wednesday, January 16, 2013
It's only half way through January and I've already lost a lot of my drive, motivation or whatever you want to call it.
I am not sure if its post-Christmas blues, or January blues, lack of sunlight, crazy weird weather - ie. lost of snow, to freezing cold, to fairly warm, back to freezing cold etc. My head doesn't cope well with these weather changes. I feel tired, my muscles ache and each day I just hop on the merry-go-round, survive and then go to bed at night.
There is absolutely nothing wrong in my life to bring me down. In fact, my goal and word for the year is JOY. And already I am struggling with this!! It's not logical and I wish this little dark cloud would go away!
I am really hoping that it is hormonal and temporary. I am attempting to care of myself, get lots of sleep at night, walked at lunch hour, had a lunch date with DH. I am doing small things on my to-do list to feel a sense of accomplishment.
It's tempting to curl inside your shell and not talk to anyone when you feel this way, but logically I know that that is not the best thing to do. So I am reaching out, emailing some friends, making plans for the weekend and will hopefully have a more positive perspective next week :D
