Shaking Yourself Out of A “Creativity Funk”

Diagnosis: "A Funk"
Symptoms: Stalled creative projects, strong desire to stay home, not interested in new adventures or house projects, embarrassing amount of fast food, and deep feelings of “meh”

Not sure what's been going on with me lately, but I’m struggling to get back into a few exciting projects and some stuff I want to get off the ground for my beloved Pocklette™. Ugh. What IS going on?! Maybe it’s the ongoing cough from my bout with bronchitis, or the PA weather that won’t choose a damn season, or, or who the hell knows at this point. All I do know is I don’t like it, not one bit.

Like any other red-blooded American I went online and Googled some solutions. The results were a bunch of ads and websites that all felt like they were trying to sell me their “self-help” book or program - annoying. Instead, I tried cleaning my house, gave myself a nice manicure which usually helps, found a great new podcast (shout out to Sportbikegrrls), and read a great book about motorcycling (shout out to Alisa Clickenger). 

This post making it out of my head and out into the world is proof that these things are helping a bit, which is encouraging, but it’s not enough. So I’m reaching out to you, the oodles of real and beautiful people out here on the web and social media. What do you do to shake yourself out of a “funk”?

If you say go to the gym or gardening, we can no longer be friends ;)
