How To Get Out Of A Funk

Do you ever find yourself in a funk?  I do sometimes and most of the time when I am in a funk I can not figure out why!

feeling in a funk


When I am in a funk I feel off, kind of depressed. It is weird to me when I go through this time because I usually can look at my life and think why in the world would I feel depressed.  My life is really great!

I have never had a problem getting out of my funk but it can take me a few days.  When my mother was alive she was the first person I would call.  She could ALWAYS get me out of my funk.  Now, it makes me sad that I can’t talk to her. She was the one person who really understood me better than anyone.  I guess that is one of the great things about moms.

What I do to get out of a funk.

  • Get outside – I love the outdoors.  When I am feeling in a funk I am better if I can get outside (especially if the weather is good),  If the weather is gloomy though it can add to my funk.  I think there is something to seasonal depression and I believe I suffer from it slightly.
  • Move – As I said earlier if the weather is good I love to get outside and going for a walk usually makes me feel better.  If I can’t get outside I will go to an exercise class or at least turn on some music and dance around.
  • Read something inspirational – I love to read self-help books.  Well, I really just love to read.
  • Do something for someone else – I have learned when I focus on someone else it really helps me to get out of my funk. I love to help people.  On the Enneagram, I am a 2.  Anytime we can take the focus off of ourselves it can help us forget about whatever is bothering us (at least for a moment).
  • Pray and Meditate – This one should be the FIRST one I do but sometimes it can be my LAST resort.  I am not proud of this but this is my reality.  It is something I struggle with.  I am a work in progress.
