Time for change is now

Are you fed up with the way your life is right now and wonder how to change it?
Here are simple ways to do just that and start to live the life you truly want.

What steps do you need to take now?

What steps do you need to take now?

Start with a dream. Imagine stepping from where you are now into the life you would like to have and take a good look around so that you can remember what you are doing, how you are dressed, the way you are behaving, the sort of things you say, who else is there and how you communicate with them, and most important of all how you feel about being in that ideal life.

Take all that information with you in your head as you are back in your day to day world and pick a goal from that vision which is feasible for you to succeed in right now even though you know that in order to achieve it you may have to step out of your comfort zone.

It could be something relatively easy to do such as change the way you wear your hair or start to wear a different style of clothes or a colour you don’t usually wear. Take a deep breath and tell yourself that this is your first step towards a new life and then do it.

Because doing this means you have to step out of your comfort zone the thought may almost stop you taking any action. So take a deep breath and breathe out your anxiety and breath in confidence and tell yourself ‘I can do this.’

You may feel as though the step is too difficult to do so ask yourself what is stopping you and what you must do to be able to take that step. If your answer is “I don’t know,’ then ask: ‘what would you have to do if you did know what’s stopping you?

Discover the answer and so what you have to do to remove whatever was stopping you.

Look at your life from a new perspective

What steps do you need to take now?

If you want to change something in your life that you don’t like then you have to start to look at your life from a new perspective because unless you do so, life and whatever you don’t like in it may continue unchanged however much you wish for it to change, the secret is to do things differently.

Do things you  hadn’t considered previously by:

Setting  new boundaries.

Habits are the way you define your life. They are your boundaries, the way you know when to start and when to stop, how you decide what doing something actually means to you and how you behave each day. All of these things can be changed if you decide you want life to be different.  You could start with changing something such as the time you get up in the morning or the time you go to bed. A change in one part of your life makes it easier for you to make changes in another part.

Trying something new.

Not only new boundaries but also what you do and how you do it. Try doing something you haven’t done before or approach solving a problem or challenge in a new way. Notice how friends, family or work colleagues do the same tasks, especially if they do them more quickly or more efficiently than you, and learn to do the same yourself. When you find  new ways to achieve the desired outcomes you will be motivated to get more done yourself.

Changing your perspective.

Notice what seems important and what doesn’t seem important and then switch your feelings around so that your perspective about them both changes. This may be useful to enable you to understand the world from someone else’s viewpoint and thus understand them better. This in turn is useful when you want to change your life so you can make changes that are beneficial to others as much as you.

Stopping something which is unnecessary.

Much of what you do, or at least some of it may not actually be necessary at all. So re-assess all of what you do each day and ask yourself if you need to continue in the same way and what you could stop doing altogether. If you take a metaphorical step back in this way and observe yourself from an outsider’s perspective then you will gain a greater insight into ways you waste time by doing unnecessary tasks.

Making your lifestyle healthier

I enjoyed reading this blog post about how to have a healthy lifestyle:   http://www.healthylifestylesblog.co.uk/healthy-lifestyles/how-to-live-a-healthy-lifestyle/

The author emphasises the importance of eating well and exercising regularly as well as relaxing and taking time out for yourself.

Even though you probably know all of this you may not be doing it because you believe it isn’t possible given the circumstances of your life.  It might be the strength of your in-built beliefs which are stopping you from making the changes you would love to make. So  listen to the excuses you make and ask youreself if those statements are really true. You may be surprised to find that in fact they are not always true and if you begin to consider life with those beliefs turned around that you would be able then to make the progress you want and do things differently.
