Maybe you have been reading about resetting your life and making healthy changes, but you still aren’t sure if YOU need to do it. Here are some common signs of needing to take a closer look at your life and make changes that will benefit you in the long run.
You Are Experiencing Burnout
The first sign that you are in need of a reset in your life is when you are experiencing burnout. This often happens when you are either working too much, or focusing so much on one thing, that the rest of your life is being neglected.
It is possible to have burnout even when you don’t feel “busy” constantly. Burnout can happen from focusing too much on one area of your life, which makes it to where you are so exhausted with that certain activity or aspect of your life, the rest of your life is kind of falling behind.
This happened to me not so long ago with my volunteer work. I went from having delighted feelings to those of anger and resentment. Needless to say, it wasn’t a good feeling.
You Keep Trying (and Failing) New Things
Have you noticed that you keep trying new things toward a specific goal, but then you quit pretty soon afterward or lose your steam? This is a really good time to do a reset and try to find where your priorities are.
This isn’t always just a case of having no follow-through. Sometimes, it is because you need to reevaluate things, remind yourself why you set these goals, and figure out what tasks would be better suited for you to complete those goals.
You Haven’t Worked on Your Goals in a While
Maybe you have goals that you thought you really wanted, but you never seem to work on them much. Things happen and lives get busy, but if it has been months or even years, then now is the time to either decide how to reach those goals, or replace them with something else you are more passionate about.
You Feel Stuck, Helpless, or Unmotivated
And lastly, if you have been feeling a little stuck, lost, or just unmotivated, it is time to look at your life and figure out what isn’t quite working for you. These feelings can come from many things, from your mental health to just being overworked.
Start writing in a journal or blog to figure out why you are experiencing these emotions, and work on a life reset so you can get down to what is happening and why you feel this way.
