Life happens and we all fall into the pit of – funky mood – at times. When that happens here’s one way that you can pull yourself out when you realize that you have fallen down the pit of funky mood.
Write out a gratitude/pick me up list.
Write down ten things that you’re grateful for about yourself. And don’t worry it doesn’t have to be perfect, there is no such thing, there is no right or wrong. This list is for you, don’t worry about grammar, or punctuation, or what someone else will think. And yes, let yourself be totally – selfish and self-absorbed – who cares. This is a self-love/pick me up out of funk letter to yourself. So, take three deep breaths, put a smile on your face and start writing –
I am grateful that I got my nails done.
I am grateful for my beautiful hair.
I am grateful that I am awesome.
I am grateful for my mind.
I am grateful for my breakfast.
I am grateful for my health.
I am grateful that I am safe and secure.
I am grateful that I am spectacular.
You can also write:
I am powerful.
I am strong.
I am confident.
I am precious.
No negatives allowed here and don’t limit yourself it doesn’t have to be fabulous, you’re not in competition with anyone. Find things that you can say about yourself. I am a great baker. I love to read magazines. You’re just going to write out ten things that you’re grateful for, pick me ups that will uplift your spirit. I am grateful that I lost 4 pounds. I am grateful that I walked up the stairs…If you have more than ten write them, and if you don’t have ten, then just find five or three.
When you’re done, read your list out loud to yourself, but don’t read it like a robot, read it and let each gratitude/pick me up seep into you, embrace it, feel it to be the truth of you, give thanks for it. Read your list again throughout the day, read it as many times as you need to, modify it if it feels good.
Writing out a gratitude/pick me up list will change your funky mood to – JOY!
