I'm feeling stuck

I feel like the world around me is moving fast right now, but I'm having a hard time keeping up with it. Every good idea or opportunity seems just out of reach.

In the Moment

Grab a piece of paper and write down a list of all the things you’d like to do this week, then put in place a plan for how you’re going to achieve these goals.

Watch

‘Somebody Feed Phil’ on Netflix

If you’re feeling shit, this show (with the smiliest foodie ever) should perk your spirits. Honestly, there’s no one who smiles as much as Phil, and it’s kinda contagious.

 

Having found fame through creating popular sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond, Phil Rosenthal has made 4 seasons of Everybody Loves Phil so far and every single one has been great. Particular favourites of ours include the Dublin episode and the Venice episode. But truly, they’re all a real mood-boosting watch so binge to your heart’s content.

 

Somebody Feed Phil is available to stream via Netflix.

Do

Give Yourself a Stare

To help boost or realise your connection to yourself, sit in front of the mirror, and stare into your own eyes.

 

Do this for four minutes.

 

It’s easy to forget to appreciate yourself – life is busy, you might be stressed or overwhelmed – but taking a few minutes to stare into your own eyes, and appreciate yourself, can help to reassess situations and feelings.

Get a Mentor

Many find getting some sort of mentor can make a huge difference to your motivation to learn and grow.

 

Reach out to someone inspirational that you know, or approach someone you don’t know, through social channels like LinkedIn and Instagram, and ask them for a chat.
