Everyone during their lifetime will get to the what we call the “waiting phase” or “the Rut”, it’s inevitable. A rut is the moment where you are not in charge of what is happening to you anymore, things are not progressing for you. Then you are just sitting there passively waiting for things to change. Well, you can get back on your feet again and stop feeling unfulfilled. These are just a couple of ideas that I advise with to stay out of a rut and avoid the worst.
Start a new hobby
The more you explore, the more you will discover about yourself and what’s right for you for example volunteer, read more …
Either by practicing yoga or just sitting in your bed and being one with yourself. Just transcend into deep thoughts. Take this time to refuel, re-energize yourself and take a break from the outside world.
Surround yourself with loved ones
Say yes more to the people that actually, truly, genuinely care about you and go to get that cup of coffee with them and talk about your feelings or go see the inspirational movie that everyone is raving about to get your mind off the situation. Or make new friends and get out of your comfort zone.
Reorganize your space
You will be surprised how much a change in the placement of the furniture at your place can make you feel better. Plus, cleanliness is extremely beneficial.
You cannot get out of a rut if you throw yourself a pity party. So instead of feeling stuck in your life, take this moment to treat yourself either by purchasing a ticket to somewhere you always wanted to visit or a new book you wanted to read.
You should also always have something to look forward to, maybe a concert or a night out with your friends.
And instead of focusing only on getting out of the rut and putting more pressure on yourself, try to enjoy the process. And if you know someone that is in a rut, I urge you to be there for them and uplift them
Don’t forget that Ruts are temporary, never permanent.
