Apathy and Despair!

Couldn’t be bothered?

Apathy and despair often go hand in hand with the feelings of I couldn’t be bothered. This is like an automatic response from one part of you while the other part of you is frustrated and wondering what the heck is going on. Then stress sets in because you feel you ‘should’ be doing something more or different or better!

It’s okay when we have these feelings every now and again.  The feeling can clearly come up when we are not on our true path and it is a sign that you need to do something different or tune in with ourselves to get back the feelings of  being Alive, and fulfilled, satisfied health and well.

Feeling unmotivated and just not being bothered is a very common complaint and one which is just as serious as any other. Sitting around and not doing anything with your days or your evenings can be very unrewarding and dissatisfying and stressful. For many the effort to change or to do anything about the problem is too much, It’s easier to sit, complain and take no action or they want to take action but just feel lost as to where to start.

First of all become aware of how you feel and when did it start or what triggered it? a relationship breakdown, an unrewarding job/career, self-criticism or self-dislike, lack of confidence,

Start by making small changes. Get plenty of fresh air, even 10 minutes, especially after eating a heavy evening meal. Open the window, stand outside the door and inhale deeply. OXYGEN is paramount to a well- functioning brain, without it you will feel tired, stressed and unmotivated.

Get to bed at set times, do not stay up late watching TV, Listening to music or drinking alcohol.

As my wise granny used to always say to me growing up. “Don’t waste your precious time watching other people live their lives on TV, Get on and live your own!!! Now I am sharing this strategy with you as it is so true. A little comedy or good movie or documentary is ok in moderation and can be used as one of your ways to chill. However, don’t sit up into the wee hours of the morning exhausting yourself. Get moving, change your posture!

Cramped, tense, achy muscles cannot work properly, depriving your mind and body of energy, nutrients, oxygen and lots more. Being stuck, tense, tight, stressed will deprive your mind and body of the exercise, passion and excitement it needs to keep functioning at its optimum and keeping weight, heart conditions and lots more under control.

Start living and do something for yourself everyday. You are worth it. Your life is precious, look after it and enjoy every moment.
