Have you had days or even weeks where you just want to be Zoned OUT and do not want to do anything? You have had enough and just want to quit!

Are you making a mistake by Zoning Out?

 

I was having one of those moments and found my self just sitting in the chair zoning off into space. You know what I was thinking about. FOOD. That was were my mind went to. I had no desire to do anything else. I was getting frustrated with life and things just seemed to pile up and I thought I would never see the end.

 

I wanted to do so much, and having a lot of fun things to do was not a problem. My desk was full of them. I had blog topics, Challenges, training to listen to, books, and other information all over the place.

 

I just did not want to do any of it.zoned out

 

Do you know what that is called?

 

Depression and Information Overload

 

Have you ever had that point in your life where you were overwhelmed and pushed to the point of breakage? That was me! How much more could I take!

 

 

 

That’s the thing about depression: A human being can survive almost anything, as long as she sees the end in sight. But depression is so insidious, and it compounds daily, that it’s impossible to ever see the end. The fog is like a cage without a key.

Depression is the inability to construct a future.

Rollo May

 

 

As I sat there eating, I started to look around, I stayed away from my office and started collecting things that I had neglected. I finished small projects that had nothing to do with business, I did other things that I hadn’t done in a while and I had a feeling come over me that I hadn’t felt in quite a while.

 

Want to know what it was?

 

Relief

 

Some days, 24 hours is too much to stay put in, so I take the day hour by hour, moment by moment. I break the task, the challenge, the fear into small, bite-size pieces. I can handle a piece of fear, depression, anger, pain, sadness, loneliness, illness. I actually put my hands up to my face, one next to each eye, like blinders on a horse.

I started to feel like I was accomplishing things, I started to feel the pressure release, I started to feel like myself again.

 

Now I needed to get busy and wear off those calories I just ate.

 

But I realized that taking the time to refresh my mind has given my just what I needed. It is Ok to get depressed for a while and just walk away. It is OK to feel sad, you are human and emotions are healthy too.

 

The deepest fear we have, ‘the fear beneath all fears,’ is the fear of not measuring up, the fear of judgment. It’s this fear that creates the stress and depression of everyday life.

Refresh

 

 

So, if you have the need to go sit in your chair and stare at the ceiling and eat all day, its OK.

Come and have a day of goofing off, and sitting back and getting the break that you need.

I suggest lie on the floor and stare at a ceiling fan. It will clear your head from your thinking and then you can slowly get up refreshed and think about good things again.

Find yourself and then get back to work,
