We’ve all been stuck in a rut before, whether it’s been for personal reasons or professional. Maybe it’s because you’re lacking motivation, you’re stressed out or you’re bored of the same routine every day. One thing is for sure – getting stuck is an inevitable part of life. Sometimes, we fall off the bandwagon and become a little dissatisfied with the way things are going.
It’s okay to feel this way. Nobody is ever going to feel content with their life 100% of the time. But what’s important is that you know what to do to get un-stuck whenever you need to. And that starts with taking care of your mind, body and soul, every single day.
When you give your mind, body and soul the attention they deserve, you’ll feel refreshed, rejuvenated and more content with your life. So if you feel like you need to press the reset button, this is how to get your mind, body and soul back on track.

10 Ways To Reset Your Mind, Body, And Soul
1. Add lemon water to your morning routine.
The best way to start off your day is by hydrating yourself. Drink a big cup of hot water with a slice of lemon as soon as you can when you wake up. This helps to rejuvenate dull skin and also helps you digest food better, which makes you feel less bloated throughout the day.
2. Squeeze in some self-care time.
If you’re planning to add self-care into your morning and evening routine, you should try the power hour method. Thinking about your mind, body, and soul, you want to spend 20 minutes doing something for your mind, then your body and then your soul. It’ll turn into a big highlight of your day.
3. Replenish your skin.
There are a few tools you need for this:
- Dry brush: If you brush your skin before a shower, it gets your blood flowing, unclogs pores and helps to remove any dead skin. Start at your feet and move upwards in big circular motions.
- Scrub: There’s no better way to replenish your skin than with a good body scrub.
- Glow: If your skin is looking a little dull, get a mask or some oil to put on your face before bed. These overnight masks can help to even out skin tone and create a glowing complexion.

4. Get some fresh air.
Whether it’s going outside on your lunch break or taking your dog out for a walk, take the time to get outside without your phone. Notice your surroundings, feel the air on your skin and take in some long, deep, reflective breaths.
5. Declutter your digital life
In thinking that the internet is our lifeline to the world, we risk missing the real opportunities to live on purpose. What you feed your mind is your choice. Do you want your child to grow up thinking the internet is more important than the relationships around her? It’s things like this that distract us from our purpose and divides our attention.
Give yourself fewer distractions. Delete apps you don’t need, go through your inbox and get rid of bookmarks you aren’t going to do anything with.
6. Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables.
Ever noticed that you can feel lethargic from your food choices? If so, try adding in more of the good stuff. Here’s a simple way you can do it for each meal:
- Breakfast: make a yummy fruit smoothie.
- Lunch: have a hearty salad (look on Pinterest – salads don’t have to be boring!)
- Dinner: make a pile of vegetables as a side.
Sometimes we try to cut things out when we’re trying to be healthier. But the best thing is to do is add good things in.

7. Try positive affirmations.
It might feel silly, but try and give yourself some daily words of encouragement. If you journal each morning or each evening, this is a great place to do it. Think about what you’re struggling with each day and turn them into positive statements:
- My message does matter and people will care about it.
- I already have everything I need to get started.
- I am safe and have a roof over my head.
8. Create an inspiring workspace.
I’ve recently rearranged my entire office at home and it’s amazing how a little change can increase your productivity. Move things around, give everything a clean and get rid of any clutter you don’t need. I also recommend lots of scented candles that you can light depending on the season or your mood.
9. Focus on one thing at a time.
There is no such thing as multi-tasking. Your attention is either focused in one place or another.
If you’ve been feeling overwhelmed by your to-do list, get serious about your priorities. What can you set aside for now? Focus on single-tasking, even if you’re afraid of forgetting something. You can always write things down on a Notes app to come back to later.
10. Go somewhere new.
Even if you can’t go very far, maybe you could explore a nearby area that you’ve never been to. You could find a new walking route, a different coffee shop to work at or take a different way home from the gym. Changing your routine even a little bit allows you to get out of that slump in no time.
