Given that we've decided to start a brand new blog, it seemed appropriate that the theme of our first post would be around trying something new!
Clients often tell us that they feel as though their lives are in a "rut". They feel unsatisfied and/or bored with life as it is, but are unsure of how to change it. People often think that getting out of a rut means doing an overhaul of their lives, which can then lead to feeling overwhelmed and, thus, not making any changes at all (and so the rut continues).
Getting out of a rut doesn't have to mean changing up your entire life! Even the smallest change to your routine can yield big results in terms of how you feel. Making one small change to your regular routine can lead to increased feelings of inspiration and motivation, which can help support even greater changes down the road.
Things as simple as: taking a different route to work, trying a new type of food, waking up 15 minutes earlier, trying a new bodycare product (shampoo, soap, lotion, etc.), listening to a different radio station, etc. can be all the jump start that you need towards feeling more energized in your daily life.
If you feel like you're in a rut, why not try doing one small new thing today and see where that leads you?
