H-Factor Where Is Your Heart


By Lisa Cypers Kamen, Harvesting Happiness

Do you feel like you are stuck in a rut? Are you not sure how to get out or if you will ever get out? We all get stuck in a rut at one point or another in our lives. Things can change and it starts with you!

The phrase “This too shall pass” may help you. Recognize that this is a phase you are going through, a period that you can change so take the pressure off and change will come faster.

Exercise.  Even though times like this make any sort of physical exercise even more challenging, focus on exercise such as a walk, jog or swim.

Get social.  We tend to become withdrawn in the low points of our life, a better approach is to join a new sport or hobby.

Change your routine.  Being stuck in a rut is really succumbing to a pattern of bad habits – by breaking your routine, is just one step toward change.

Baby steps.  Our tendency is to wait for some major life event to break us out of our rut when the best way to quickly escape is to take small steps each day. It will take time, don’t expect a major change right away.

Change your company.  When you are stuck in life look around you, do you have positive role models or mentors you can rely on to help you see the light?

Introspection and Meditation.  When things around you get challenging – give yourself permission to focus inward for 30-minutes each day by practicing meditation.  With just a week of consistent meditation you will be amazed at how less terrible you will feel about your current rut. Perhaps you’ve heard of the expression, “change your mind, change your world?”
