    Take a few weeks off and drink a lot of beer and watch TV. It's my new plan for fitness success.

    This is your body telling you to take a week or two off. Rest, relax have a different diet than you do now. You'll come back much more motivated.

    Lifting is cathartic for me - I can function without it, but stress will start to get to me pretty quickly.

    Lifting should be fun. It shouldn't be something you dread. There are times I'd rather hit the sack than go to the gym, but I make myself go anyway and usually I'm glad I did.

    Make sure your nutrition and recovery are in check.

    Mix things up. Change the rest intervals, or the set and/or rep scheme, or the rep tempo, or the time of day, or the exercises, do all concentric/eccentric/isometric work for a day, do all bodyweight exercises, do your sets for a set amount of time instead of a set number of reps, do everything seated or standing up, use nothing but dumbells or barbells or machines, try a new gym, get a (new) training partner, train outdoors, ...
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook
