Is it time to press the reset button on your life?
Do you feel like you are in a rut?
Do you feel that life is passing you by and you are caught on the treadmill of life?
It is almost halfway through the year and although I was determined not to make New Year Resolutions this year, I concede that we all still have dreams and goals we want to achieve.
I was having a Personal Training session and my trainer told me to ‘set my intention and reset my mind’. That word ‘reset’ got me thinking about how sometimes in life we need to press the reset button and clear out the clutter and start again.
You know how a computer builds up a ‘cache’ that we need to clear? Well humans are the same – we need to clear out the clutter from our minds so that we can enjoy our life without being weighed down.
Sometimes we just need to draw a line in the sand and make changes for a happier, healthier lifestyle.
There are so many reasons why we want or need to reset our lives.
Perhaps you are at a stage in life where the children have left and you are wondering what to do with your life.
You may be at a crossroads with your career and not sure whether to jump into something new.
You may be looking at retirement but you aren’t sure how to fill the long retirement years ahead.
You may be wanting to start an exercise program, lose weight or just get healthy.
Whatever the reason, remember that YOU ARE SPECIAL and deserve to be happy in life. We only have one shot so let’s make the most of it!
This is a perfect opportunity to press that reset button and start living a new, improved life – just for YOU.
Are you ready to ‘reset your life’? Try my 5 top tips to get you started!
#1 – Set a goal
Is there something you have always wanted to do but just haven’t?
We all need something to work towards or look forward to in life. Now is the time to set some goals, write them down and make an action plan to achieve them.
#2 – Embrace Change
The biggest hurdle in resetting our lives is having the courage to make CHANGES.
Change can be exciting and bring many new challenges but it can also bring FEAR as we are so used to our own ‘comfort zone’ that we find it hard to take that first step.
#3 – Have a makeover
I think one of the quickest ways to feel good about ourselves is to have a makeover.
It can be a new hairstyle, a manicure or pedicure, facial or buying a new outfit. When we look good we feel good about ourselves and our positivity shines through.
#4 – Get healthy
We all need to take a look at our lifestyle and health especially as we reach midlife and beyond.
Now is a great time to make changes to your lifestyle and incorporate regular exercise and healthier food choices. No, you don’t have to become a fitness fanatic but it is a scientific fact that exercise and a healthy diet is vital especially as we age, as it increases our energy and fitness levels as well as improving our mental well-being.
#5 – Take a chance
Sometimes we just have to close our eyes, hold our breath and jump!
We have to take a chance on life whatever the outcome. Most of us don’t want to take a chance because we fear we will FAIL – who wants to be a failure? However, if you don’t take a chance you will never know what you are capable of. Even failing can be helpful if we learn from the mistakes we make.
What will you do when you press the reset button? Go on press it now – you will be surprised!
