You Got This: How to Get Out of a Slump

This was originally published in 2016 but it’s so popular that I’ve updated it with some new tips for you all! 🙌

I’m sure I’m not the only one that has phases of being unproductive with no motivation to work.

When you’re ticking things off your to-do list, it feels great - you’re working to the best of your ability, you’re helping your clients or customers, and you’re generally getting shit done.

On the other hand, when you’re feeling a little down about your business, it can have a huge effect on your productivity. It sucks. If I get into a work slump, you’ll find me on the sofa, snuggling the doggo, and playing Dead By Daylight 🎮

I’ve been there before, and I’m sure I’ll be there again, but I always find my way out of it!

Whether it’s business or personal, these tips and tricks will help you beat your blues, find your motivation and get back onto the right track! You'll also be able to grab my free Goal Getter Goodies bundle to help you stay focused when you're out of your slump! 💕

Stress, anxiety and being overworked leads to burnout and exhaustion, and so to combat this, and run a successful and thriving business, it is crucial that we practice self care.

Self care comes in many forms, it doesn’t have to just mean having a hot bath and trying to relax (although this can be awesome!). This article will highlight 7 ideas to increase self care that you may not have thought of :)
