Am I the only person who gets that itching feeling to getaway? To pack what you have and just walk out? Sometimes I just feel like disappearing. Traveling to a new city and just live in the moment. Although my mom would raise hell if I just disappeared…yikes.
We all know with life there are some lull moments. Some more than others (me especially). We get sucked into our everyday lives and forget to live and at times ourselves. Here’s how it goes:
Work (gotta pay them bills)
Binge Netflix (waiting for season 3 of Stranger Things)
Sleep hopefully (who knows my mind is a death trap that won’t let me sleep sometimes)
It’s the same boring cycle over and over again. It’s because of this never ending loop that this anxiety to escape springs forth. I also notice when my life has become predictable I start to get lazy. I get sluggish and slow. I begin to pull back from my friends and the world.
How do I break through this rut? I choose a weekend or a day and do something I don’t typically do with friends. I like weekends because I tend to have more free time and weekend vibes, you feel?
Sometimes I’ll plan a rock climbing day or mini golf. Maybe even laser tag. The best way to get out of the funk is to do something that you don’t normally do. Get out of your comfort zone. And I always recommend doing it with some fun friends. Makes living just a tad easier.
But if maybe that is out of your price range there’s always starting a hobby, joining a club, or even discovering a new book. It’s good to put yourself out their into the world. Uncover who you really are. Sometimes its as simple as waking up a bit early and giving time for your mind and body to relax.
And that’s how to escape the epic boredom of life’s cycle. Surprise yourself with something new, indulge yourself. You gotta live a little. Spice it up. Listen to Spice Girls!
