See what doesn’t work in your life

It is important to know what is wrong in your life and what you want to change. You will have to evaluate the different areas in your life. If you need to write it down as a list or in a narrative, the important thing is that you create a mental map of the areas of your life that are important and that you feel is not working.

For most people, the important areas are usually: work, family, well-being, money , other areas of stress and even a family environment . Think about what your values ​​are in life and evaluate how those areas are affecting you.

Think about your values

When you are making your life plan, you have to work around your values, what is important to you and what you hope to maintain. Do you value family a lot but spend very little time with them because I work at something you don’t like? Do you want to improve your physical condition but you spend too many hours watching television?

Often people include activities in their lives that have little value to them without realizing it. To ensure that you are spending your time wisely, assess what it is that you value most in life and pay attention to how you actually behave around expressing these values ​​in your real life .

Look towards the future

When you make a life plan you will have to plan the present, but also the future. Look at your values ​​and think about how you want your life to be in the coming months, years … think 10 years from now! Then work toward those goals to feel the rewards. If, for example, you want to change jobs, you should dedicate part of your time to that search.

Plan your steps

Think about where you would like to be and start walking on that path. Organize small steps to get closer to your goals so you can more easily experience successes to stay motivated and look toward your goals as you go.

Eliminate what is blocking you

As you plan your steps forward, review what is not working and think about what you could improve in the future. Think about what blocks you from achieving your goals and eliminate those aspects of your life that make you exhausted. Cut out what does not fill you, commitments, relationships , etc. Minimize anything that drains your energy and doesn’t satisfy you personally.

Configure the structure of your life !?

Create systems in your life that allow you to back up your desired changes so you don’t have to redo the same thing over and over again. For example, if you want to start training, join a gym and find a partner who is part of your daily training schedule. If you want to relieve your stress, commit to a regular practice to help you achieve it.
