Blah, And Also Meh.

I don’t know whether it’s the time change, what with the darkness and the ridiculously bad traffic since everyone is now driving in the dark  and the leaving the office in the dark and oh did I mention the dark (as an aside, why does a one hour time difference feel like 4.5 hours at 7pm?), but I’ve been…blah. Tired and listless and irritable and snippy and uninterested in…stuff. TV? Meh. Books? Meh. Work? Meh. Anything beyond just sitting here slack jawed? Meh.

But if I think about it, it’s been going on longer than just a week. I’ve kind of felt like this for a while. Maybe it’s stress (it’s probably stress). Maybe it has to do with the season changes (it probably has something to do with the season changes). Maybe it’s frustration (it’s probably frustration). Maybe I’m just wallowing (I’m probably just wallowing).

I’ve been trying to do some things to see if I can feel less blah. I can’t do anything about some of the stress or frustration or the season changes, but I’m hoping to can help myself out some other ways. I’ve been trying to drink more water. I’ve been trying to work out 3 times a week. I’ve been trying to go for walks at lunch, or at least go outside. I’ve been trying to go to bed a little earlier. I’ve been trying to dance in my kitchen with my kid even when I don’t feel like it. I’ve been trying to breath more and swallow my frustrations less.

We’ll see. So far, I’m still blah, but between the time change, the news, the weather changes, and work stuff, maybe that’s not surprising. I probably just need to give it more time. But it’s hard to keep working on that stuff when I’d rather just sit here. Slack-jawed. And meh.

I totally get it. I’ve been blah for at least a month and I know that mine is season-related. I always get this way right before the time change and it peaks about a week or so after the time change. I feel ya, hon! Eventually the holiday season will kick in and I (and hopefully you!) will get caught up in the contagious feel-goodness. 🙂 Hang in there!

I’m sorry life is blah. I hope the color comes back for you soon.

I’ve been fighting a major depression for a few months now, so I know mine isn’t seasonal. I finally had to get back in touch with my therapist. When life starts to swallow you, it’s time to do something about it. It’s super hard to reach for help, but I have learned that sometimes I’m not going to get through it on my own.

Thank you for sharing your story. It helps.

And thank you for stopping by on my SITS day. It was a fun day for me.

I hope you have a lovely weekend.

I have been pretty blah too. For all my cheese-eating and candle-lighting.

What helped to turn me around was just avoiding the news. It’s all bad, all the time, and I can’t handle it. It makes me feel like there is no hope, nothing I can do. Ugh. You know, if I have to get all caught up on New Year’s Eve, so be it.

Hoping your weekend is restorative and you find some happy.
