FLOW WITH THE FUNK
Feel it, Face it, Figure it out
Facing uncomfortable feelings takes a certain amount of bravery. So kudos to you for having the courage to sit with your emotions. But when you’re doing this, you don’t want to just sit in the mess, you want to get to the root of the problem.
Use these self-discovery questions to get started:
📍What happened recently?
📍Am I feeling stuck?
📍Who is around me?
📍What’s on my mind?
📍Are there any fears or doubts lingering?
📍Am I feeling overwhelmed?
The biggest reason you need to unplug from your devices when you’re in a mood is that it will heighten the comparison battle. Whether you recognize it or not, being on social media impacts your mental health. Seeing other people’s lives immediately causes you to compare your life to their latest update.
But the fact of the matter is, you’re comparing the myriad of wild thoughts running through your mind with a snapshot of their curated life. Which is unhealthy and most of all, it’s a distraction.
The more you distract yourself with social media, or the news, or even browsing the latest trends, the more you’re clouding your mind with irrelevant information.
Take a break, distancing yourself from all the distractions, and free up the mental space you need to do the inner work.

Before You Go…
I just want you to remember that feeling funky is normal, it comes over all of us at some point or another. What I hope you take away from this is that you have the power to choose how long you’re gonna live there.
I’ve found that these moods help me unearth something I’ve buried. When I let myself feel it and face it, there’s something at the root that I need to work through. Once I figure it out then it’s my choice if I use it to grow or remain the same.
I choose growth. That’s the kind of life I want to live. How about you?
