Here are five more ways to get out of a rut:

  1. Change your routine. Try to break bad habits.
  2. One day at a time. Do not succumb to worry and anxiety.
  3. Look closely at the people you spend time with.  Negative people will bring you down.
  4. Take personal responsibility. Do not blame others. Look deep inside yourself and realize that God has uniquely gifted you.
  5. Spend more time in prayer. “Cast all your anxieties on Him because He cares for you.”
  6. Be self-aware. Know thy self and know the signs. Look for the trigger that will send you back to a rut.

Are you in a rut? After serving at a church for 19 years that is where I found myself. No matter how motivated or aligned you are, each of us can find ourselves in times of going through the motions.

 

 

Here are some signs that you are in a rut:

  • You do not enjoy your work.
  • Your energy drops dramatically.
  • You are not sleeping well.
  • You are gaining weight.
  • You are no longer passionate.

Here are some ways to get out of a rut:

  1. Recognize this is a phase and it will pass.
  2. Hang out more often with family and friends. We tend to withdraw when we are in a rut; many times only exacerbating the situation.
  3. Exercise! You probably do not desire to exercise during this time but it will change your outlook.
  4. Adjust what you are eating. Many foods can be self-destructive. Really manage what you eat—healthy eating is a must!
