Life Reset

Sometimes I get in a lull and feel like I’m spinning my wheels. We all get like that sometimes, right? So I keep this list on hand of ideas for a ‘life cleanse’ or ‘life reset’. Choosing even a few of these to put into action can really make me feel like I have a fresh start to be motivated and ready to work on my goals.

    Reset Your Life Ideas

1. “I accept myself unconditionally right now” out loud in the mirror for 30 days (from the Hungry For Change documentary)

2. meditating for sleep: breathe in thinking of the word REST, breathe out thinking of the word SLEEP {I love this one, this really works for me!}

3. When I make a mistake and have done what I can to repair it: “I forgive myself immediately and permanently.”

4. step onto my yoga mat, even just for a few minutes

5. I have a Nap button on my alarm clock that I can set in 15-minute increments, and sometimes 15 minutes can really recharge me.

6. ink shedding: set a timer for 10 minutes, a get a pen and paper or open a word document and just write to clear my mind- Don’t over-think anything, just keep writing. This is good for writer’s block.

7. work out. sweating is cleansing to the body.

8. when I feel anxious… take a few deep breaths and think to myself “you are safe.”

9. when considering a purchase… ask myself whether this purchase will enhance my life

10. detox from social media. we all get social media burnout from time to time, and it’s okay to take a break for an hour, a day, a week.

11. further to that, a break from electronics entirely can really reset my pace in life. a walk outdoors, a bike ride, tending to the garden, a long bubble bath… a small break from our screen-filled world can make a big difference.

12. limit caffeine. It has a time and a place in life and when I’m pushing myself beyond the limit, I notice.

13. respecting my money. making smart plans for it and putting it important places.

14. eat something (or ideally, many things) green. this small thing is a big deal.

15. stop for a minute (especially before unhealthy food) and consider what my body is truly hungry for.
