25 Ways To Get Unstuck In Your Life

Hey pretty! Seasonal changes almost always get me in a slump. I become bored, unmotivated and stuck – basically just too tired to move (please don’t judge!).

And there’s nothing wrong with being a little under the weather.

We, as humans, should be able to accept and feel all the emotions life gives us. Otherwise, it’s just a boring trip.

But if you’ve been in a slump for way too long and don’t have the motivation to do anything, it may be time for some changes.

Now, getting unstuck may be hard, especially if you’ve been in the same routine for a long time.

You may feel lazy, depressed, irritated and at the same time – angry that you’re feeling this way and that you have to do anything at all (“I have enough on my head already”).

It’s worse than a Minotaur’s labyrinth – you want to find a way out, but you’re just too tired to keep looking for it.

So try to take things easy and, instead of making huge changes, change up a few smaller things instead.

Surprisingly, it works pretty well!

A few simple tweaks start the engine going and from that moment it becomes so much easier to move on.


Here are 25 ways to shake up your world a little and start moving forward:

23. DIY a life binder and sort things out completely:

25. Visit someone you love and have been missing.

Whenever you find yourself feeling lazy and unmotivated, try (or even force yourself if you need to!) to do one thing from this list.

It will stir your rut up a little and spark up excitement for something new.

Sometimes it’s all it takes to feel better.

    I love these tips! Such simple things but they make such a big difference to your energy and outlook. I often move my furniture or create a new playlist when I need to feel inspired and get out of a rut. Thanks for sharing!

      Hello Rhiannon,

      I’m glad you like them! Sometimes simple is all we need – not everything has to be complicated in order to be good. Thanks for stopping by! 🌿

    Great tips! Some things that get me going in times like these are opening the windows to get fresh air into the house, read inspiring blog posts, watch a sports movie (I get ridiculously motivated and want to create my own zero-to-hero montage the same night, lol), and invite some friends over for a board game night.

    Seeing what other people have accomplished inspires me to do the same, in my own way, and spending a night laughing and trying to beat a game just infuses my life with fun and makes me relaxed. 🙂

      Hi Erika,

      AMAZING! This is what a healthy coping is – letting in some fresh air, socializing, talking, simply looking for inspiration… Many people don’t know how to cope in a healthy way (because no one ever taught them) and I legit believe we should teach these things at schools! We could have much less anxious little hearts in this world 💕
