Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?
Running yourself ragged doing the same things over and over again?
Look, if you want to change your life the first step is to recognize there’s something that you want to change.
Changing your life can sound like a warm bubble bath after a long day but once you dive in you realize it’s more like a river of freezing cold rapids.
I mean, where do you even start?!?
First, break down the seven largest areas of your life, physical health, emotional/mental health, spirituality, love/relationships, finances, career/purpose, and your environment.
Rate these seven areas on a scale of 1-10. 10 Being couldn’t be better, 1 being horrendous.
The areas that scored the lowest are the areas in your life that you want to change.
And if that’s all areas of your life, start with the area that will make the biggest difference.
Hint, hint, your life changes from the inside out.
Breaking down your life in this way makes changing your life much more easy to digest and will help you focus on one area at a time instead of everything at once.
Now that you know what areas of your life you want to change, how do you actually do it?
I’m giving you a list of 100 easy life-changing habits that you can literally start right here and right now. But don’t get too overwhelmed.
Choose 1-3 small changes you want to make for each area of your life.
Remember, the point is to stick with these changes long term, so don’t go overboard with changing everything in every area of your life right off the bat.
