If there was ever a great time for reviewing your life, the time is now. I work with teenagers and adults daily and it’s an immense moment of clarity when mindsets start to change, and we all take 100% responsibility for our lives and career. Here are 6 ways to review your life:
- Where did you used to travel to every day? Was travelling every day critical? How much have you saved on fuel and travel costs? Our household is saving over £300 a month on fuel costs and reducing the impact on the environment.
- How are you keeping in touch with friends and family? We have more communication now than ever before because I know for example that my 94-year-old Mum needs company, but I can’t go so I phone every day.
- Who could you do something nice for? There are loads of fantastic community support groups popping up so why not join one and support your local community.
- What can you do differently to create some time for yourself, your friends and family? The gyms, cafes and restaurants are all closed so why not have a virtual coffee break or lunch. I know some friends who had a virtual BBQ last week, it was great fun for all.
- When will you make the decisions to change what you do even if it’s a small thing? I’ve decided to be appreciative of the staff out there who continue to work during these difficult times. Yesterday I thanked the lady in our local Co-op for being there and keeping the shop open for us all.
- and finally why do we continue to do the same things and expecting a different result. I hear a lot of people who moan about their life but seem unable to take one step at a time to make the changes they so badly need. Unless you’re passionate about what you do take small steps to change.
