3 ways to get out of a rut

I’ve always been a huge fan of Zella! They have the absolute best leggings! my favorite are the High Waisted Live-in leggings! I feel like they hold everything in and are so comfortable! Not only do I wear those specific kind while working out I always have another pair that I wear as my everyday leggings! They don’t have the shine to them so you can totally get away with wearing them as everyday leggings!

Zella is a Nordstrom exclusive brand. They are always my first stop when I’m looking for new work out clothes because I love the quality and know that they will last! Also with 2 little babies I usually order online from Nordstrom and it’s so much easier with free shipping and free returns if something doesn’t work out!

I love this cute white outfit all from Zella. I have been on the hunt for a pair of white workout leggings for awhile and I love these! I love the fit and the pattern! The best thing is they aren’t see through #winning. I am also in love  with this cute white mesh bra! It is probably one of my favorites I have and I love how simple but chic it is. Also this cute blue pull over! It is so so soft and cute to throw over a workout outfit and look put together! It would also be super cute on its own! Last but not least I’m love all things nude and these cute sneakers are a win! I would size half a size down though because they tend to run a little large.

Below I’m sharing a couple of easy tips on how I get out of those times in life or in your month, week, or even day when you feel like you’re in a rut. Just can’t seem to get out of a funk. These a 3 little things I do to help push me through and end up on top!

Thank you to Nordstrom and Zella for sponsoring this post. As always all opinions are my own. 

1. Set attainable goals:

It is so easy to feel like the goals we set for ourselves are totally unachievable! Let’s change that! As humans, we can easily become overwhelmed when we feel like we don’t have a handle on our lives and that’s totally normal. We see how much work needs to be invested in order to get back on track and it can be such a daunting task! Think about this, if you want to start working out every morning start with one day at a time! Put your gym clothes to the side the night before and put a workout plan together that you want to accomplish in the morning. Set small attainable goals so that you don’t feel overwhelmed by the big goal ahead!

2. Break your routine:

Routines often go hand in hand with feeling stuck. Do you always go to the same vacation spot? Do you always have lunch at the same place with the same people on the weekends? Or do the same workout routine day after day? It’s time for a change! Mix it up! Listen to different music, eat something new for breakfast. Don’t be afraid to go out of your comfort zone and try something new!

2. 5 minute rule:

When I’m in a rut I often find myself unmotivated to do anything, even things I need to get done. This is where I turn to my 5 – minute rule! I will do something I don’t feel like doing (i.e. the dishes, start the laundry, get dressed, pick up around the house) something I can commit a solid 5 minutes to even though I don’t want to at the beginning I am always happy I did at the end and usually go over 5 minutes because I get caught it. This little method has helped me so many times when I felt stuck in a rut! Also, I love to just go through the motions when I feel in a rut and eventually at the end of the day find myself back to normal and feeling great!
