“No one is in control of your happiness but you; therefore, you have the power to change anything about yourself or your life that you want to change.”
~ Barbara De Angelis
Sometimes we can find that our lives seems to be going swimmingly. We feel totally on top of our game. Everything is going to plan and we feel good. At other times everything can seem completely out of control. We can’t catch a break, our luck is down and we can’t get into a positive routine.
Loads of crappy things can happen to us every day that are outside of our control. Always remember, when we are dealing with these things, we are fully in control of how we respond to them and what actions we take. When we get to a stage where we can’t find our rhythm, there are a few key things that can help us get back on track:
1) Spend time with people who inspire you
As Jim Rohn states ‘you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with’ With this being the case, spending time with people who inspire you can have a huge positive impact. If you are feeling a bit low, out of sorts, or you can’t get into your usual routine, spend time with people who will get you back on track. As Opera Winfrey says, ‘Spend time with people who will lift you higher’
When I am out of my routine and can’t get back into my usual habits, surrounding myself with positive, inspiring people, always helps to get me back into my flow. Give it a try!
2) Hire an expert
If you are trying to conquer a specific goal, it might be worth hiring an expert to support you with this. If you are trying to start a fitness plan, get a trainer, if you are trying to implement a new diet, consult with a healthy eating expert, if you are trying to start a business, hire a business coach. These people can offer their expertise and help you with how to tackle your goal.
If you are trying to implement new habits into your life, life coaching can be a useful strategy to help you succeed. CoachMe offers accountability coaching which is one of the most affordable ways to receive support with achieving your goals.
3) Reconnect with your vision
If you have lost your way, then there is no better technique to get back on track than to reconnect with your life vision and goals. Remember what it is your are aiming for. Try visualizing what it will be like when you are living it. Have your vision board printed out so you can get attuned to it every morning as you wake up.
If you have written your Book of Life, go back and re read it and remember what it is you stand for. Immersing yourself in the vision you created for yourself and the goals you have for your life is a great way to help you get back on track with achieving them.
4) Look after your health
Health is the foundation to everything. The better condition you are in health wise, the easier everything else becomes. Focus on getting enough good quality sleep, follow an exercise routine and eat a healthy diet. If you get into the flow of caring for your health, you will find that everything seems easier to manage.
I have written previously about the Sleep Cycle of Awesomeness. I have found that sleep has a huge impact on health and productivity. If you don’t get enough sleep, the rest of your routine can very easily get affected. If there is one thing you can do to get back on track it’s focusing on getting great sleep and addressing any reasons why your sleep might be being impacted.
I’d love to hear how you pick yourself back up if you’re out of sorts. Have any of these methods worked for you? Let me know in the comments below.
