It is currently difficult to get a change in scenery so you may find yourself feeling in a bit of a rut lately. However, there are simple ways to get a new lease on life that don’t involve drastic change.
1. Step outside your comfort zone: if this step makes you nervous, start small. Try de-cluttering your home, especially focusing on things you have negative emotional connections with, or rearranging furniture, or repainting. Changing your immediate environment can give you the momentum to change your emotional landscape.
2. Master something new: Sign up for an online program and challenge yourself to learn something new within a set time. You could try learning a foreign language, or an arts-based skill, taking up a cooking course or even a business or study program. Plan how you will apply your new-found knowledge practically in your life.
3. Offer your help: helping others in need can be rewarding for everyone involved. Not only can you take active steps to improve the course of someone’s day, it also gives you an enhanced self of well-being. You can donate resources such as money, time or a skill-set, sign up for a fostering or join a mentorship program.
4. Give your health a makeover: Lay out a health living plan involving eating at least five portions of fruit and veg a day, drinking two litres of water and exercising for 30 minutes 5 times a week. Feeling good on the outside boosts your confidence and helps you feel good on the inside too.
