getting out from under apathy

In life, we can get apathetic. If you’re feeling slow and lazy, I offer two primary options: if you can sleep longer during appropriate times, do it. Go to bed at 10 instead of 11. Avoid long naps, 20 min at most. The second option, when you can’t at the moment expand your sleeping schedule, is to get pumped.

Sometimes when you feel apathetic, your body needs to move. You need to get it to move! Exercise where you can, listen to upbeat music! Life is short. We only have so much time, and all of these things we want to do. We don’t know what tomorrow will bring. Our lives could be changed dramatically at any moment! But if it is, we want to be able to be adapt to that new situation. So be awake! Be present in what you do. Get your body going so your mind can be there for the things that matter.

If you find yourself in a funk, try to get out of it, even if it feels pointless. You’ll never know which effort allows you to pull through. This is your life! It is your own, and you’re doing the best you can! Whether you feel like you’re behind or ahead of people, know it’s not a race.
