5 Things to Do When You’re in an “Emotional Fog” « Mark’s Blog

Oftentimes, I feel like I am in an emotional fog. My feelings and emotions are in a constant battle. My mind is not clear and my body completes the picture. I am not myself though I pretend to act like nothing is going on. I must push forward, his too shall pass, I say to myself. In the meantime, I enjoyed Mark Merrill’s post with tips on how to deal with the emotional fog.

Take time to read, learn and share.

 

Pull over.

You may want to stop what you are doing and pull over if you are able for a few hours or maybe even get away for several days so you can clear your mind.

Patience.

Sometimes, you just have to be patient and wait until the fog clears. You can’t try to control everything.

Ponder.

Spend time reflecting upon your life.  Instead of asking yourself “Why is this happening to me?” Ask yourself, “What can I learn from this?” Or, “What should I do as a result of this?”

Pray.

God allows the fog in your life and God can take it away. Sure, pray that the fog will clear. But also pray that He will be pleased with how you handle yourself when you’re in the fog.

Persevere.

Life is not easy. You will struggle. You will experience pain. Don’t give up. Don’t give in. The fog will lift. Blue skies will prevail again.
