Ever feel like you are all worked up? Like there is just too much in your head and you are bottled up - emotionally, physically and even spiritually; too tired to do the “usual” and too uninspired to move forward? It wouldn't take long and you will begin to realize that your life actually needs a reboot.
A reboot doesn't necessarily mean you should leave everything behind: get a new identity, be in a new country, or start all over again. To reboot could simply mean to bring yourself back into an excellent condition; become somebody who looks forward for the days to come and be excited about life itself.
It's a fast paced modern world we live in. There is the usual 9-to-5, the deadlines you are chase, the electricity bill coming – really, the list could go on and on. The stress, the anxiety, that sluggishness you are feeling, those are definitely signs that you need to troubleshoot your life.
You are not the only one in this situation. As a matter of fact, most of us wish life has a reboot button; something that you will just push whenever you are fed up at the things that thrown at you. That button is not something that science could create, not now, at least. But, you yourself can do wonders to refresh and realign the goodness of your life.
So how do we begin a “reboot” when it comes to our lives? Here’s your quick step by step guide.
Let’s start by de-cluttering the mess.
Yes, you’ve read it right – we begin with the mess. You cannot think straight if things around you are a mess. Sort out your place, simplify your home, reduce commitments and back track on your routines to see what makes things complicated. Only when you accomplish this, will we be able to move forward.
Check on your lifestyle.
Eat better foods. Exercise more. Party less. You want to “refresh” per se.
Go on a retreat. (Or is it more like a vacation, as they call it?)
No, it’s not a luxury to be considered an unnecessary waste of time. Quality time to yourself is a necessity.
Take up the hobby you love.
Have you been neglecting a craft that you used to love back when you were a child? It could be writing, painting, woodwork or whatever it is that made you feel excited. Then it is definitely not too late to re-love your craft. Get back to it.
Do something new every day.
What makes us ultimately fed up is when we do things routinely, like it is the same damn thing over and over again, and you don’t even have to think at all when you do it. Sometimes, they’re too routinely that even your own reflexes have memorized these routines. So every day, find time to do something new. A new jogging route, a new recipe, new genre of music to listen to, a new book to read – just anything new.
You: Refreshed and Renewed
Remember that you are doing this “reboot” not just for you but for everyone and everything that matters to you. So there you are; cleared, rested, rebooted. You are back to your operational level and we hope that you will be more energetic and more excited about the things that life has to offer. With you at your peak of mental, physical and emotional health, there is so much that you can do.
