The Funk... Not a music genre

What do you do when you are in a funk?  I don't mean like dancing to Le Freak by Chic.

There are many options:
  • Sit in quiet
  • Breath heavy
  • Go for a walk
  • Listen to loud music
  • Hang out with family
  • Get after it, whatever that means to you
  • And so many more...  
I mean that kind of funk, where you are pissed, sad, upset, and frustrated with no real actual reason to tag for why you feel this way!  What the .... is this all about?!?!  How can you sort of know why you are in a funk, but not really know?  You blame lack of sleep, other influences, events in life, etc.  But in reality if you were held down and forced to explain, it would be very difficult.  

So what do you do?  You need to find that magic spot!  Here is mine right now!


I will listen to this song 15 times on the way home from work.  Shamelessly, I will admit that I have a full length mirror in my garage with BIG speakers hooked up to a full system to blast music.  I will play basketball with my son or just dance in front of the mirror to break the funk... Is that weird? Please don't reply to the blog!  

What I am explaining and saying is that I have found my funk blaster, find yours, even if it is embarrassing like dancing in front of a mirror like a 14 year old when you are a 38 years old fake DJ, but real Principal! 

P.S. it is usually only a 5-10 minute session then I am good! Major issues might take a few sessions or combination of tactics.  The key is to just do something totally not related to the funk!  I have never had a basketball or dancing funk, so I go to that!
