In a slump? Cat got your tongue? Feeling blue? All of the above? Too many questions?
It’s time to get your groove back Stella!
Since most of us can’t afford a first class vacation to Jamaica like Stella, I’ve compiled a list of the best things to get you out of your funk. This list is especially for those of you who dream big but with empty pockets, or as I like to say, “Ballin on a Budget.” Besides, “Mo money mo problems” Right?
1.) Remember, it’s not all about YOU! Surprised by number one? Well sometimes the best thing we can do to help ourselves is help others:) PAY IT FORWARD! But remember, your ballin on a budget, so keep it small. For example, pay for the person behind you in the drive thru’s coffee order. Imagine how that would make you feel? FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC, that’s how!
OMG A FREE COFFEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2.) Dance! Thinking already that you can’t dance…who cares! Dance like no one is watching, because guess what? No one is! It will raise your spirits by raising those happy endorphins! So get it girl, work it, twerk it, cotton eye joe it, what ever tickles your fancy.
Hell, if all else fails, put on Jock Jams and get crazy!!
3.) Write a letter. You don’t have to be William Shakespeare to show someone how you feel. Further more, it’s not corny to write, even a letter. Imagine how much joy your Grandma will feel when she gets a signed, sealed letter delivered with love to her sweet old door. Go old school, ditch the emails, texts, and Facebook messages, write an old-fashioned letter. XoXo. Hey, you may even get more than a ten-dollar check for Christmas this year 😉
4.) Laugh. Possibly the easiest way to instantly feel better. And by laugh I mean that belly laugh that makes your sides hurt. Some feel better blogs suggest you start off by smiling. But what happens when your by yourself and you just sit there and smile? You feel awkward and your by yourself, weird. Try to laugh and see where it gets you.
Wether its people watching at Walmart…….
Watching a hilarious Youtube video….
or simply gathering your brew crew for a few chuckles…
Laughter is the best medicine, and you need not a prescription. Give yourself a double dose of laughter, especially when you’re in a slump. It can’t hurt right? Sometimes when you begin laughing you forget why and laugh just because your laughing. What a great FREE way to instantly feel better:)
Need a laugh right now, I’ll get you started……
Although this is a rather short list, it’s a good start. Hey, Rome wasn’t built in a day right? So in that case, when in Rome, do as the Roman’s do. Or when your broke, ball on a budget.
I’ll leave you with this…
“I wish I was a glow worm,
A glow worms never glum.
Cause how can you be grumpy,
when the sun shines out your bum?”
