When you are at your best you probably know what you need to do next to live a more fulfilled life. You can catch yourself when you are going through the motions and know that to live wholeheartedly you need to take some time to reflect, re-plot your course and make a commitment to maintain this new-direction.
Simple, but often in the lives we live it can feel really tough to justify taking time for yourself – especially if it is hard to put in to words exactly why you need it. And, if you do snatch some time by yourself you can end up going round and round in circles and feel more lost and overwhelmed.
You may have had times when you have come up with some great plans and resolutions. But then you find yourself losing steam and slipping back into self-recriminations, over-work, reaching for the cake, the bottle of wine, the TV remote or what ever off-switch you use. It is hard to keep the commitment to your self and habit re-establishes itself.
