3 FOOLPROOF STEPS TO FIGHT THE BLAHS

Well life, you are kicking my butt a little bit today. But you know what... I know just how to fight back!

Some things have happened. Josh and I don't know exactly what we want to do with our careers. I'm feeling unmotivated about work and play lately. My assistant gave her two weeks because she is moving and now I have to do all of her work, find a replacement, and train said replacement. I'm eating extremely healthily but not losing any weight which makes me anxious for my engagement pictures in two weeks. I have a lot of travel coming up this spring. I don't know where I will be living next year. I have no idea what I'm doing with my life. 

Phew. I feel better. 

Now there's not much I can do about any of those things, but I plan to fight back the blahs with three foolproof steps tonight.

1. Pamper
When I am feeling down, nothing picks me up like pampering myself. I'm famous for taking bubble baths for hours, but tonight I think I am going to give myself a little manicure. A fun nail color always does the trick.

2. Indulge
Dark chocolate and red wine. Need I say more?
I'm working on being healthy but even these indulgences will make me feel like I'm having a treat and they aren't even that bad for you! I mean, red wine is good for your heart... or something.

3. Distract
I am also famous for over-analyzing just about everything. Instead of focusing my thoughts on all the problems I listed above (some of which aren't even problems, they are just life!), I am going to focus my thoughts on love and happiness and anything but me. The bottom line is that I am very blessed so instead of throwing a pity party, I'm just going to distract myself by watching one of my all time favorite movies, About Time. Josh just bought the DVD for me (he is so sweet in the way he shows his love) and I am going to tuck myself in with my freshly painted nails and treats and just enjoy it. 

If you are having one of those days, take a deep breath, figure out what you can do to be kind to yourself tonight, and TAKE A DAY OFF! It will all still be there tomorrow when you are fresh and rested.

  1. Thanks Meg. It was an epic night of wine, chocolate, red nail polish and roomie crying time over the movie. Just what the doctor ordered!
