Don’t Fight The Funk

I’ve decided to stop fighting the funk. Like any other pain we experience, funk is a warning signal that something is out of alignment. It may feel like a desire to be alone, edginess, or just a bad attitude. When the funk steps up in your life, know that it’s time to take a break.

Everything natural has cycles; flowers, the moon, the seasons – why wouldn’t we? If you pay attention you’ll probably discover a pattern. So that when the funk shows up, you’ll know that it’s a good time to take a step back.  Funk time is a good time to allow yourself to receive. To be supported as opposed to doing all the supporting. Have a cup of tea; take a walk; go to the gym; take a nap….

I’m discovering with many of my clients that the practice of healthy receiving is a foreign subject. We need to do both – give and receive to maintain balance.

So, who takes care of you? Who will you allow to support you? Have you asked for help recently?

Asking for help is not weak, it’s really the only way to succeed.


  • I wholly agree. I had a friend who tried to be everything for everybody and got burnt out and lost herself to drugs. Self love, self care is so important!
