How to reset your life When you’re ready for a change 1080 1080 Abbe Lang

Sometimes our lives get stuck in negative patterns. We get into relationships we shouldn’t be in, or we’re living in places that don’t fit with our personalities or our needs. We can feel like we’re on autopilot and not really taking control of our own destinies. But there’s good news: Life is a journey, not a destination, and there’s always the possibility to change things up if you want to—and sometimes it’s just a matter of realizing that you need to do so.  That you need to take action.  Here are some tips for resetting your life and getting back on track toward what brings joy into your world.

Why you need to re-evaluate your life and what you’re doing.

  • You’re not where you want to be.
  • You feel like you’re stuck in where you are.
  • You need a life reboot.

How to re-evaluate how you’re spending your days.

  • Spend time on yourself.
  • Spend time with friends and family.
  • Spend time on your hobbies.
  • Spend time on your interests.
  • Spend time on your goals, projects, and ambitions.
  • Pay attention to how you feel when you do these things, as well as how they make you feel about yourself overall (and ideally write down those feelings).

Recognizing that life is a journey and not a destination, and that while we can strive to achieve goals and push through obstacles, everything exists in cycles.

Life is a journey, not a destination. When we’re in the process of living, we don’t always have control over what happens to us—or how we feel about it. Sometimes people do things that hurt us and sometimes we end up somewhere different from where we thought we would be by this point in our life. That’s just the nature of being human: no matter how hard you try to plan everything out ahead of time or make all your dreams come true as soon as possible, there will inevitably be surprises along the way. It’s important not to get discouraged when things don’t go according to plan; instead, try reminding yourself that these setbacks are part of life and are opportunities for growth and change as well as learning experiences that can help prepare you for what comes next (or even make your future endeavors more successful).

We can only control ourselves; our actions do change how other people react towards us but not always the way they should or want them too (it depends on many factors such as their personality type). This does not mean however that changing yourself will result in immediate changes among others around you – it may take some time for those around you to recognize any positive changes made within yourself.

Relearning who you are and what you want out of life.

When we surrender our control, we also give up our ability to define ourselves. We are not our jobs, and we are not our homes.

To get a sense of who you really are and what you want out of life, it’s important to ask yourself some challenging questions: What is important to me? How do I want other people to see me? How do I see myself?  How do I want others to remember me when I’m gone?  Am I constantly growing into a better, kinder person.

It’s okay if it feels uncomfortable at first I promise that once the answers start coming, they’ll flow freely and easily.

Knowing when it is time to move forward.

You may be wondering, “Why does it feel like I’m going through the same thing over and over again?” There are a few reasons for this. One reason is that when you’re in the same situation for too long, it becomes the norm. This means that you fail to notice how bad it is because it’s just become normal for you.  People would rather remain in a negative situation than make a change and be uncomfortable.

The second reason is that sometimes we get stuck in our own ways of thinking and doing things that don’t serve us well anymore (e.g., being afraid of failure). The problem with getting stuck in a particular way of being or thinking is that we can’t see any other possibilities besides what has become familiar to us—it keeps us from growing as individuals.

The third reason why some people seem stuck in their lives is because they haven’t had much experience with change before so they aren’t sure what else there could be out there besides what they already know about themselves…

Making tiny changes that can have an impact on your life.

  • You can make tiny changes that have a huge impact on your life.
  • Change your diet: Cut out processed foods, increase fruits and vegetables, drink more water.  Eat organic.  Eat organic grass-fed proteins.  Drink water with minerals.
  • Change your exercise routine: Add in some yoga or meditation to relax the body, since stress is one of the biggest reasons why people don’t stick to new habits.  Get out in the sunlight every day.  Lift heavier weights, challenge yourself.
  • Change your sleep schedule:  Get to bed earlier.  That is crucial to your health.  If you can get in bed by 10pm and try and get 8 hours of sleep so you will be set for the day ahead.   If this doesn’t work for you, try cutting back on the amount of light coming into your room at night so that it’s not as hard for you to fall asleep (you could even use an eye mask). This is also helpful if getting up early in the morning isn’t working for you.
  • Change daily habits: It’s important not only to change when we do things but also how we do them as well; this includes eating slower rather than gobbling down food too quickly (it gives us time for digestion), exercising regularly instead of once every few months when time allows us (our bodies crave movement!), meditating before bed each night instead of watching too much TV after dinner is another option.


Forgiving yourself for past mistakes or regrets.

When you’re ready to forgive yourself, you’ll know it. You might want to forgive yourself for something you did, or something that happened to you. Perhaps you feel like forgiving yourself for being too self-centered—but remember: When we don’t forgive ourselves, we can’t move on with our lives. It’s in our nature to make mistakes; what matters is how well we learn from them and how quickly we bounce back when life throws us a curveball.

If forgiving yourself feels impossible right now, think about how much time and energy it takes to hang onto regret and shame for years after an experience has passed. You might have made a mistake years ago that still haunts your thoughts today—but if the mistake happened long ago and has been corrected since then let it go…

It’s important to let go of our ideas about how our lives should be, so we can see the possibilities in front of us clearly and make better decisions for ourselves going forward.

Sometimes, it’s okay to let go of your expectations. You might have a vision in your head of how things should be and when they aren’t that way, it can be discouraging. Maybe you’ve been dating someone for a while, but they haven’t moved the relationship forward as fast as you might have hoped.  People around us are doing their best and we need to give each other space when making big decisions. Let go of the control and let the universe unfold to you what your next greatest step is.

Letting go also means letting go of fears; the ones that hold us back from taking risks in our lives and careers because we might fail or disappoint others if things don’t work out as planned.  Our fears are often irrational but can still cause us stress and worry.


Remember that this process is all about you, your life and what makes you happy. Don’t let anyone tell you how to live your life, treat your spouse or raise your children.  Take the time to figure out what works for YOU and your unique situation. It’s important to remember that not everyone follows the same path in life – some people feel happiest when they’re living in nature and others prefer urban environments with lots of activity around them. The point here is not necessarily finding one specific way that “works” but rather being open-minded about all possibilities.  When you are open-minded you allow the universe to step in and provide for your greater good.
