344: How to get out of a rut

Are you stuck in a rut? How do you get out? Similar to last week’s podcast episode… just reminding you all that you can change. So if you are feeling blah, flat and in a rut… tune in, it’s time to get you out of that rut!

This is what we spoke about during the episode

  • According to Oxford Languages, a rut is a habit or pattern of behaviour that has become dull and unproductive but is hard to change.
  • Ruts aren’t necessarily a long-time thing. Sometimes, ruts come in moments in your day.
  • We think the best way to get out of that funky rut feeling is to move and shake up your body. Literally, jump and dance around to your fave song. 
  • If you’re stuck in a job that you hate, check in with what you can add or subtract to make it better.
  • Change is hard and scary but it’s the ultimate shake-up of ruts and can make a 180-degree life turn.
  • Adding a new goal or something else to focus on helps alleviate your original rut situation. Like a 50 day Yoga Challenge.
  • Talk to a friend about your rut, do something fun and creative, watch inspirational documentaries, or learn something new.
