Not so motivated Tuesday

Do you ever just wake up in that funk?  Not really wanting to do anything, knowing you have a few things to get done but you have a few more days before they have to be done.  So you procrastinate!  That’s where I am right now.  At least that is where I was this morning, not really sure it has gotten much better, other than the fact that I have gotten some stuff done this afternoon.

I was able to motivate myself to go out for a run (5.5 miles!  Yeah me!) because the weather is beautiful and I need to enjoy it while I can.  Winter will be here soon and as I discussed in previous post, I am not a great cold weather runner, although I am working on getting better at that.  I tend to believe all that I need to do is get the right equipment (ie, warm running clothes) and I will be fine.  So another way for me to procrastinate today was spend some time thinking about what to get.  Not even shopping online for it (this is getting to be a new lazy!) just thinking about it!

I continue to work through my funk/bad mood and think about the book I just finished, The Happiness Project.  I got some ideas for some future blog posts but I will leave you with the thought from the book that is helping me get through my lack of motivation:

“Act the way I want to feel… although we presume that we act because of the way we feel, in fact we often feel because of the way we act…studies show that even an artificially induced smile brings about happier emotions.”  (Happiness Project)
