Got interests? Then get going!

Are you feeling burnt out, stressed out, and generally lost in life? Do you find yourself spending your days doing things you really don’t enjoy doing at all? How long do you plan on continuing this unsatisfying life you’ve designed for yourself?

The only person in charge of your life is you, and you can stop drifting through life by choosing to take conscious action to include more satisfying and fulfilling activities in your life. The question is, are you aware of what things you truly enjoy doing?

Some people have spent so many years doing things that they really didn’t want to do that they no longer know what it is that they actually like doing. If you live your life by making decisions based on a sense of duty to others, you’re really not living your own life. You’re just being a slave to what you think others want to you to do.

Take charge of your life, and use your free time to participate in activities that you find personally satisfying and fulfilling. And if you have absolutely no idea what these satisfying activities might be, then take a bit of time to discover who you really are. What are your interests, skills, and passions?

Are your attitudes worth catching?

Thanks to Ali for this gorgeous path photo! Please click the path to visit her blog.

Attitudes can be contagious. Are yours worth catching? What attitudes are a part of your daily life? Have you ever stopped and thought about it?

Start off by printing two copies of the list at the end of this post. Then ask yourself: which of the following words describe your various attitudes in an average week? Without judging them, tick off all of the attitudes that you think you experience on a regular basis. Add any additional attitudes that you think you have.

Then take the second copy and, at the end of each day starting tomorrow, tick off the attitudes that you experienced. If you experience a particular attitude on more than one day, tick it off each day. Add any additional attitudes that you have during the week, but aren’t on the list.

At the end of your week, compare the two lists. Where are the similarities? Where are the differences? Which attitudes did you think you experienced on a regular basis, but didn’t? Which new attitudes showed up on your second list?

Easy tips to achieve work-life balance

Thanks to Mariángeles for this path photo from the Alhambra in Granada, Spain.

Work-life balance is one of the most talked about issues these days, though I’ve always thought that was something of a misnomer: after all, isn’t work actually a part of our lives? I evaluate balance in my life by reviewing the nine areas of wellness: emotional, environmental, financial, intellectual, physical, professional, social, spiritual, and sexual. So, while I’d like to address the issue of “work-life” balance, I’ll be calling it professional wellness.

How do you rate your professional wellness, on a scale of 1 to 10? What would need to happen to make it a 10? What would a 10 look like to you? If your professional life were perfect, how would you feel?

Wake up and live!

Thanks to Mariángeles for this path photo from Costa Rica!

I was just reviewing my list of possible blog topics and thinking about what I felt like writing, when I read the first sentence of this quote on Twitter:

Spirituality means waking up. Most people, even though they don’t know it, are asleep. They’re born asleep, they live asleep, they marry in their sleep, they breed children in their sleep, they die in their sleep without ever waking up. They never understand the loveliness and the beauty of this thing that we call human existence.” Anthony de Mello

A lot of people sleep through life, killing time with mind distracting activities like television watching, novel reading, computer game playing, long phone conversations, incessant texting, and web surfing. If we choose to consciously participate in these activities and observe our feelings as we do so, we can learn something from them, or in the very least we can learn something about ourselves. For most people, though, they’re just time wasters: ways to pass the time and get through each day.

Are you sleeping through your life? Do you find yourself stuck in a routine, living on auto pilot, drifting through life? Are you living a reactive life?
