How do we deal with feeling funky, especially, when we do not know why we are in a funk? Do most of us go through such a malaise like disconnect, at times? Do we feel generally out of sorts? Have you felt that angst, without experiencing any strong emotions, like anger, frustration, sadness or disappointment?
Do you know people who exist in a funk as their normal mindset? If a funky mindset is not a constant, is it something we would like to ameliorate and move to a more positive, optimistic or productive mindset?
Are there learning opportunities within our funkiness? Is it really about mindset? What happens, when people accept the funk but do not give into it? Accepting the funk, what is the next step to productivity? Is mindfulness required? If we accept, but choose to focus on our major purpose, with attention and intention, can we be productive? Could this productivity lead us out of the funk, like the fog lifting in San Francisco?

Could we also embrace gratitude or reach out to help others? Accepting the funk, but embracing a broader perspective?
Could this concept of accept, but embrace a more universal focus, serve you well with other emotions that distract or overwhelm? What is your “go to” for that transition? Do you have a positive, optimistic and pro-active mindset? Do you set your attitude, or do you take it as it comes?
