Do you ever take the time to have a go at taking stock of things in your life? Sometimes, however organised we are, things can overwhelm us, and taking stock is whats needed to get back to a sense of normality as quickly as possible.
Usually we stray off course due to something out of our control taking up our time more than usual – a family emergency, illness, holidays even. Or we can simply lose track for a few weeks as life gets busier and we can’t stick to our usual routines for a while.
Whatever the reason – it can be really difficult to get back on track.
The mountain of backlog can feel burdensome, and too much to bear – and we end up feeling down/stressed/procrastinating etc….
Who wants that?
I get into this mode at times, and the only way to come out of it with some sense of sanity is to draw a line in the sand and take stock.
How to easily take stock of your life
Its as simple as setting aside a little time, and having a blank sheet of paper and a pen.
Whether you set aside a few hours one evening, or get up early one morning – find at least 2 hours where you can really think about where you are and whats happening at the moment in your home and life. You need to sometimes give yourself time to step back and evaluate things, otherwise the day to day stuff will overwhelm.
You are the owner of your life – so take an overview every so often – make sure you are planning and heading where you want to go – not just living the day to day just keeping your head above water.
