Yes, you read the title right. We can all feel that mid-year slump at about this time, after beginning the year with so many hopes and goals. That sinking feeling and lack of motivation that can be felt at the mid-point of the year, isn’t necessarily a bad thing though…
It’s a wake-up call
By ‘wake-up call’, I don’t mean make drastic life decisions or begin doubting your achievements, but realize that this is an opportunity to start from scratch or step up your plans. Knowing what you need to do, also can mean taking a rest. Listening to your body and mind is the best thing we can do for ourselves.
Comparisons of ourselves with others and their journey through life, is NEVER constructive, even when it is someone we admire. Try not to look on social media and others ‘achievements’ as a guide to what you feel your life should be, you are unique and that is always your biggest asset.
Knowing that every day is a chance to work towards goals, is so important. Putting pressure on ourselves, helps absolutely nothing at all. It just causes stress and being flustered is a state where we can’t be productive. Why put yourself under that kind of anxiety, be kind to you. Being kind to ourselves, as well as others, is something I can’t repeat enough.
So what if it is June? We are doing amazing things every single day and we need to celebrate this!
Have a beautiful day and be kind ♥
