In a Hole??? Part 2

 

If you’re in a hole, stop digging.

 

The answer to a lot of problems is to just stop. We keep at it. We keep thinking about it. We just won’t let it go.

So, we dig deeper and deeper. We dig until; sometimes we can’t find our way back out of the hole we’ve dug ourselves into.

So, what’s the answer to this hole we get ourselves into?

 

  1. Step back and give it some time.

Instead of digging and digging stop and take a breath. Give it a rest. Time does heal some things. Go for a walk, change your scenery and sleep on it.

Don’t forget it though, just let it sit for a bit.

Time can give you a new perspective.

  1. Take care of yourself.

Get good nights sleep.

Eat a healthy meal.

Get outside and move a little.

When we get stuck we have a tendency to mope, and isolate ourselves. We end up eating a whole box of cookies and watch bad TV programs. All that will do is add to the problem.

 

  1. Talk to somebody.

Don’t keep this to yourself. Tell a friend. Don’t talk to anyone who will dig you deeper into your hole. But talk to a friend or relative that is on your side.

 

The point of all of this is many times we are our own worst enemy. We dig thing up that should stay buried and we don’t let things go.

Stop the digging. Get out of the hole and move on.

 

Need to talk? Need a hand with the hole you’ve dug?
