Our feelings are determined by the way we react to our circumstances. There are times when we feel stuck and worthless. It makes us feel drowning in the mud and even if we want to change it, we fail to. This is the kind of feeling that develops into anxiety. But being stuck is not the problem, how we perceive it makes an impact on our lives. It is a time of life when nothing happens much; the anxiety comes in when we fail to make things happen. The situation gets worse when we struggle less in order to get unstuck and begin to accept the way it is.
It may feel like we do not have control over our lives and what is actually happening, but there are certain things that can things that we can do in order to build up the momentum once again.
Break up with the limiting mentality:
When we feel stuck in life, we feel it impossible to move forward. We get caught up in the cynical thoughts that change our mindset into a complete negative state. The best way to deal with this situation is to replace every negative thought with a positive one. Whenever a negative though comes to mind, we should send ourselves affirmations that keep us positive.
Simplify and organize:
The process of simplifying and organizing things is actually empowering as the very act of cleaning things up, cleans up our mind as well. This might feel as an outward expression, but it organizes and cleans us internally and makes us feel much lighter. It is because once we clean things up; it makes a room for the creation of new ideas. When everything comes in order, it more easily helps to generate inspiration and ideas.
Think of the accomplishments:
When there is not much happening, there is a lot of time to think. Instead of taking it towards the negative direction, we must think of our own accomplishments. For this purpose, set short-term goals. Think of the things that you can achieve in few minutes and then try to complete them. The sense of accomplishment even for the smallest task can help to gain the momentum back in life.
Step back and do that feels comfortable:
The effort for getting unstuck makes us feels burnout. Therefore, it is best to leave the things as they are and get involved into something that gives joy. This will bring a refreshing sense of fun back to life.
Learn something new:
We feel bogged-down when we keep trying to do the same things over and over again. It makes us get stuck in the same spiral of negativity. The best we can do is to try to do something that we have not tried before but always wanted to. These are the times when we can work over those things and get ourselves separated from the usual activity.
Getting stuck in life is an indication for us to change the course with which we were moving towards life. It is the perfect time to explore a new terrain and focus back again with renewed energy.
