This year has been one hell of an emotional roller coaster and right now you may be trying to demand a refund for a ride you didn’t ask to go on. Between online learning classrooms for your kids, remote desk working or coping with monthly stipends for money, food, and what’s left of your mood... we understand that you're hanging by a thread.
You also may be wondering: what's left for you?
What happened to the amazing year you had planned?
How can you still make the most of 2020 and feel accomplished by the end of this year?
All of these questions can feel unbearable, but deep down you know that there is a vibrant badass inside of you that can tackle any setback.
You are resilient and showing up bold right now just by reading this blog post. It’s time to pause, breath, and reset.
Here are three easy steps to redirecting your steps and connecting with your purpose for the months ahead:
Get Still and Quiet... (no, really.. do it)
You have heard this mantra before and you may have even rolled your eyes while reading it, but it's the truest, simplest form of connecting with yourself. When you call your best girlfriend to catch up.. don't you take the conversation into a private room? Or hell, at least somewhere you can hear what she is saying on the other end? That's what we mean. It's time to schedule a catch up with yourself, where you can really hear your thoughts, gauge your feelings and contemplate the future.
2. Set Intentions for Every Area of Your Life
At Curves Ahead, we teach our members to divide their time between the "5 Pillars of Strength": Mind, Money, Body, Career and Connection. These categories will help you pinpoint areas of your life that you need to prioritize. Think about each pillar individually and assesses one goal that you'd like to accomplish by the end of the year. For example, under the MONEY pillar you might like to save $2,000 by the end of the year or under CONNECTION you'd like to spend more time getting to know your siblings. Whatever it is - make sure its true for you and its attainable.
3. Take it One Damn Day at a Time
Now, it's time to break those goals into daily tasks. If you're not tracking your goals - you're missing this whole point. Being able to see the change and progress is the key to getting to any destination you seek. If you're on a road trip, don't you glance at the map to make sure you're heading in the direction that you intended? Tracking is the same thing.
