The deeper truth about Lifestyle
The way you want to go may require a change of lifestyle and a change of lifestyle is no small thing. To actually do it and make it stick might not be possible if you're conditioned to feeling powerless. Have a look at the following questions and give them a chance to percolate a little before you take action. :
Do you currently see yourself as a slave to impulse, to routine, to repetitive thoughts, feelings and emotions or avoidance ?
What are you like in the morning these days ?
How do you sleep at night ? - (If you have trouble sleeping, what keeps you awake ?)
What are your relationships like ?
How do you imagine the future, good, bad, indifferent, unknown or something else ?
To whom do you listen to and why ?
What do you default to when the stress hits you hard ?
Do you structure your day or do you go with the flow - does the day happen to you ?
How long has this been going on ?
Do you consider yourself to be effective where you need to be ?
Do you believe you are motivated to change ?
Where does empowerment fit in ?
Unless you feel empowered, then a lifestyle change and maintaining a new lifestyle might be a big leap. Maybe leap further than you are capable of right now given the current restraints in your life.
Becoming empowered to change or modify an entire lifestyle for even one person is a significant thing….and if there’s family, friends and colleagues involved then it’s going to effect the entire system when you do change..
So where do you begin to find your way forwards ?
