Don’t Let Life Pass You By

If the life you’re living seems too fast-paced, you’re working at a job that gives you no satisfaction and you find yourself constantly saying, “I’ll do that later” or “We’ll do that soon”, it is likely you’re feeling underwhelmed with your current lifestyle! Modern families tend to lead hectic schedules full of monotonous routines, dashing from activity to activity with little fun or enjoyment thrown in. If this sounds familiar, perhaps now is the time to make those all-important changes that will bring confidence, balance and joy back into your life.

Take some time over the next few weeks and spend it simply on self-reflection. Try to understand the reasons why your life has become so busy and mundane. More importantly, try to identify what really motivates you in life, what gives you a real buzz and what motivates you to succeed. Try to remember all the things you were passionate about as a youngster. Were you sporty or musical, a book worm or a budding baker? Think about reintroducing those passions back into your life so you can start feeling good about yourself again.

I often share tips and techniques that help busy mums to improve their schedules and live in a more organised way. The reason scheduling is so useful is that it highlights the important jobs and enables us to disregard unnecessary tasks. It frees up time for essential relaxation and reflection. Avoid creating a schedule that is so rigid you can’t allow yourself flexibility to cope with the unexpected. Always leave room for last minute changes, especially when a catch up with friends is being arranged at short notice!

Changing your ways takes practice, but practice you must. Once you identify how you want to live and what you want to achieve, you can put all the steps in place to start enjoying a much easier, more fulfilling and happier life!
