Bit of a Slump

Hello friends 🙂

I just wanted to check in to say hi, because it’s Friday and I told myself I post on all Fridays now! (But I didn’t have the foresight to have something planned in case I wasn’t able to get something good up for you all.)

Unfortunately, I am in a bit of an emotional slump. It sometimes feels like I’m going through the motions of how I usually behave, and that feels very forced and unnatural. When I see my friends, I tell myself I’m happy to see them and I laugh real hard at their jokes because my friends are funny!

But I’ve been feeling a bit off. I thought this feeling would stop by the beginning of the week and it’s still here. I have to not only accommodate this but I need to actively work to push myself out of this mental ditch I’ve fallen into so I can do the things I would like to do.

In the meantime, if you have anything that helps get you out of little slumps like this, I’d really appreciate if you could share them! Last week, I was feeling very… nothing, but I watched a bunch of cute animal videos and that really did help get my emotions flowing again.

Thanks and I hope you all have a lovely weekend! I’m off to see Darren Criss and Betsy Wolfe tonight at the Kennedy Center!

  1. Usually I take naps to help reset myself should I feel any emotional anomaly. If that’s not helping, maybe walking around the neighborhood or exercise might help get the body and mind synced to how you’d like?

    Or find a way to treat yourself. Don’t over indulge, but certainly something to perk yourself back up. Hopefully this is something…


  2. Naps are a weird thing. I do find that when I get in this slumps, I feel really sleepy all day but sometimes I also have a hard time falling asleep. I just lie in bed… feeling sleepy…

    Sunshine and exercise are definitely things I should be getting more of in my life, and with spring coming around soon, I hope I get more!

    It really did feel like a switch just went off. I could eat all my favorite foods while watching my favorite movies with my favorite people and just still feel… not really there, not really good. It was frustrating. But I think I’ve come out of it and I’m glad for it.

    Thanks for the tips, Derek!
