Stuck in a rut, 5 tips to get you out

We all experience different life events, some are good and some are not so good, tackling and overcoming obstacles are challenging times that can  lead  us to adopting ‘not so good’ repetitive behaviours. Before you can free yourself from these repetitive behaviours you have to identify what is ‘not so good’!

‘Stuck in a rut’ could be absolutely anything! Maybe work hours are taking control and overpowering your day, leaving you with no time to pause and concentrate on your own thoughts and wellbeing. Or perhaps your children are leading your life through their fitness, sport, social, and or leisure activities.

Both scenarios leave people stressed, tired, overworked and strained. Negative thoughts begin rushing through your mind, leaving you powerless, sluggish and pessimistic. The real question is how do we escape from this rut?

It’s not simple to identify you are in a rut and it’s not simple to get yourself out of the rut. The more uncomfortable you feel the more likely you will change.

Here are 5 tips to get you out of a rut.

  1. Focus on your inner wisdom and think about what is preventing you from living a healthy life.
  2. Acknowledge it is time for a change and how you will feel once you have made the change.
  3. Plan “ me time” in your daily routine where you try different things to find out what makes your heart sing.
  4. Commit to it.  If it is not in your calendar it will not happen.
  5. Be patient & stay positive with yourself and you will slowly see growing results


Remember your health and wellbeing are the key to all aspects of your life. I would love to hear when you were in a rut and what did you do to get out of it?

    I got out of my rut by moving to the Peninsula from the city. I really had to be brave enough to make that change and didn’t come without it’s challenges. I am now in a much better place and when look back on my courageous decision, I realized it was all about ‘timing’ – I was ready for a change after feeling like someone on a mouse wheel. Thank you for sharing your thoughts too Brigette!
