    Hello Realjock,
    So due to my ridiculously busy summer, I have been out of the gym and out of a good mood for a while now. Combine that with getting and moving to a new job/home and I am feeling a little out of sorts and out of my element. In short, I'm in a bit of a funk.
    So Realjock, how do you get out of a funk?
    Best,
    -Z

    Get back to the gym or at least regular work-outs, eat healthy meals and

    get laid

    Funk gone

    This is what worked for me:

    No alcohol

    Succeed at doing something exciting or scary

    Help people do something...make a list of your accomplishments, give yourself a little credit...and call your friends...all of them, go down the list...and see how they are doing...reconnect. I guess what i'm saying is work at it a little by investing in something worthy...it'll shake off...you seem to be great at accomplishing things.

    Gin martinis

    Or, return to the gym. You might be a person who responds strongly to an exercise high, but conversely crashes when it's taken away.

    Stop being self-centered and get out of my bubble.

    I love being self-centered, and I love having self-pity. So when I'm down I know the two things to change first.

    Some P-Funk could do the trick

    The funk phenomena. Or maybe it was the Safety Dance? I can't get no satisfaction. Look at the stud on the cover of Mental Health! Oh, I'm not in the good mood for this.

    P-Funk works, though I'm partial to "Bop Gun (Endangered Species)". Lately, though, it's been Sly and the Family Stone for me:

    You might just need someone to talk to. The simple act of unloading all your pent-up stress onto a good friend is on the surface unimaginable but it's spiritually and mentally relieving.
