If you’re feeling stuck, try this: get clear on what you want. Cancel out the noise and truly tune into your inner world.
- What makes you happy?
- When do you feel the most fulfilled?
- Who do you feel best around?
Most importantly, get clear on your values. When you know your values, you can act in alignment with those values. This process of getting to know ONESELF is so key to getting out of a rut.
Journaling is an amazing way to dig deep and understand what one truly wants for their life. I feel that this is such an important topic to expand on because so many people feel stuck in their lives, feel unfulfilled, and feel ultimately unhappy. This can be CHANGED if you are willing to make a commitment to yourself.
Allow yourself to feel. Listen to what your heart is telling you. Try journaling to get those thoughts down. Just write one sentence if that’s all you can do. No filtering, no erasing- simply explore what comes up for you and what feels true!
Think of 3 things you appreciate about the current stage of your life.
Just practice. There is no perfect meditation. Simply close your eyes, breathe, and listen with an open heart.
The key to getting un-stuck will be different for everyone, but it starts with listening, calming the mind, and understanding what one truly wants. Once an intention can be implemented, it is easier to work towards something. Take it one day at a time and be kind to yourself along the way. And remember, we are all in this together.
