For When You Want To Bury Your Head In The Sand

Life gets hard sometimes and it can really break you down to the point where you just want to give up on everything. At that point you think about quitting your job and sleeping for the next year or so don't give up just yet. 


- Take a break

If you do need to literally get away from it all then do it, don't mope around in your house clothes for a week instead book some time of work, book a mini break somewhere nice and go whether it's on your own or with someone else, getting away from it all can really help you clear your head and prepare you to take on your problems no matter what they may be. 

- Shift your perspective 

I'm not saying your problems don't matter but I am saying there's always someone else going through something ten times worse than you. Instead of wondering why life is so shit, take a pen and paper and write down a list of things or people you are grateful for. Maybe you'll realise that it's not that bad after all and you have someone to help you through it. 

- Get advice 

If you really are stuck and really don't know where to turn get some advice. Turn to a close friend or family member, no matter how alone you might feel theres always someone who will understand what your going through and will want to support you through it. If you don't feel like you can turn to anyone why not seek advice from a professional. 

- Write it down (Then rip it up) 

Writing down your problems is a way to get it out your brain and make some sense of it. Sometimes it's as therapeutic    as talking to someone. When you have finally written everything down take the paper burn it, rip it up or do whatever you want to make sure you can't read it again. I guarantee you'll feel better for. It. 

- Meditate / Pray 

Whether your spiritual or religious or neither meditation or prayer is a sure fire way to give your problems to the universe and feel some sort of relief. If you're religious you know the drill, if your not why not try to meditate, you might not think it will help but you'll be surprised. 

Sit or lay in a comfortable position play some relaxing music and just be. I use the Calm App to help guide me through meditation. 

I know what it's like to just want to give up, but there are always options to get you through. 

What do you do when you feel like giving up?
