Stop Hurrying and Start Living

 

If you’re not getting enough things done on your to-do list, you’re not alone. It’s common to feel a little overwhelmed, rushed, and even guilty when you’re unable to get everything done each day. Staying focused and in the moment is challenging.

Then the little things seem to start piling up. The dishes are dirty and the laundry needs to be done. The only obvious solution is to be even busier and to schedule every minute of the day.

Modern Rules of Conscious Uncoupling

 

Conscious uncoupling could make breaking up easier to do. You probably heard some journalists snicker when actress Gwyneth Paltrow recently used the term to describe her separation from her husband, Chris Martin.

Remove Fear and Eliminate Many of Your Challenges

 

It’s unlikely you have any issues in your life that weren’t created by fear. You might not think that your financial or relationship challenges are rooted in fear.

Moving From Inspiration to Action

 

How many of your great ideas have gone unrealized? It might have been a great idea for an invention, book, or unique business proposal.

If there’s one self-criticism that most people have, it’s the inability to take action with any consistency. For example, you might have the inspiration to finally lose weight and get in great shape. But then you’re unable to get started on your exercise routine.

Common excuses include being too tired or busy. Life just seems to get in the way.

How to Live Up to Your Full Potential

Potential is a funny thing. It can’t be quantified, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be cultivated.

How to Axe Self-Sabotaging Behavior

 

Self-sabotage is a uniquely human behavior. Many of us sabotage ourselves when we decide we want something by doing everything we can to ensure we don’t get it. Sound familiar? Although self-sabotage is a subconscious behavior, we can get a handle on it.

There are many reasons that you might sabotage yourself. It’s an extremely common behavior, rooted in a fear of the unknown. If you’ve immersed yourself in mediocrity, the idea of greatness may be frightening. Ask yourself if you’re satisfied with your life.

Is Minimalism For You?

 

Minimalism and simplicity are commonly used terms today. Are they the same thing? There are varying degrees of minimalism. Many view minimalism as the modern equivalent of living in a cave and eating berries by a fire, but that isn’t necessarily the case.

If you feel like your life is too hectic or lacks meaning, minimalist ideas might help you create a life that’s more centered and enjoyable.
