Stuck in a rut

Your work week looks something like: eat, work, sleep, repeat and your weekend might go along the lines of eat, drink, eat, sleep, hangover, repeat till you have to get up for work on Monday…

Week in, week out, it is pretty much all the same.

Feel like you’re stuck in a rut?

Feel like this is all life has to offer?

You have got to the point that you don’t even know how it got to the weekend already, the week just auto piloted through.

Yip, I have weeks like that too.

When someone asks you what you have been up to and you don’t actually know because every day blends in to one.

It has just been all work and little play.

It is human nature to get in to a routine and make things a habit.

Thing is when we fall in to that routine where everything happens without much thought we lose sight of what we want, what makes us happy, what improves us.

If you don’t change, you don’t change.

You don’t improve.

You don’t get happier.

We don’t want complacency, we want contentment.

How is your routine affecting the rest of your life?

Are you hitting those fitness or weight goals?

Do you love the life you are living?

Do you wake up every morning looking forward to the day ahead?

Is there any aspect of your life that you want to be better?

What do you think would happen if you broke the routine?

What difference could it make to pay more attention to what was going on around you, even for one day – just to see what would be different?

You might see things differently, meet more people, have more fun…

So, if you are feeling a bit like a robot working through each day, what if I set you a challenge?

For 1 day I want you to do some things differently.

Make eye contact with more people, acknowledge people – you will be surprised the positive response you get when people smile and say hello back.

Keep your phone in your bag and look at what is going on around you.

Try it.

1 day.

Let me know how you get on.

Small changes in your approach can make big changes in your experience.

Once you have tried this for a week I will up the challenge.

I look forward to hearing how you get on.
