It’s completely normal to feel stuck in a rut sometimes, bored and unfulfilled with life. But are these becoming increasingly regular emotions for you? Are you restless, drained and unmotivated?

It’s time to do something about it. Too many people live life frustrated because they struggle to find their purpose. Let us help you on your way to a more content existence. 

Decide Where you Want to Be

Spend some quiet time with your thoughts and try to work out what part or parts of your life you need to tweak. Is your job leaving you feeling bored or miserable? Then have a think about what career path might be right for you. And be brave – think carefully about your dreams. Do you have a hobby or skill that’s followed you since you were young? A talent that comes easy to you that you know you could make a success? Your dreams are intrinsically linked to your purpose – so don’t be afraid to go after them.

Perhaps you feel fulfilled at work but you’re craving more alone time, or maybe you want to build exercise into your routine. Do you want to spend more time with family and friends? It’s all achievable with focus and discipline. Make careful, step-by-step plans to keep those goals attainable and carve out a clear path to success.

Top Tip: Make a list of things you’d like to achieve and incorporate into your life – satisfaction guaranteed when you come to tick them off!

Assess your Appearance

Is your appearance getting you down? Feeling negative about how you look can have a huge impact on your day-to-day emotions, so perhaps it’s time to tackle it head on and make some changes.

Is your skin dull and lifeless? Your complexion can tell you a lot about your overall wellbeing, so there’s a few things you can do to improve it. The experts at Transform Medical Group recommend using at least SPF30 on your face all year round to avoid premature ageing. Ensure you’re getting enough sleep – around eight hours – as this is when your skin repairs itself. To avoid dryness, make sure you’re drinking enough water and if you’re a smoker, look into ways to give up if you want to avoid a dull complexion and sagging skin.

How is your diet? Of course, everything in moderation, but try to steer clear of too much junk food to avoid feeling sluggish. Look into weight loss options if you think this could help you feel happier and more positive.

Top Tip: For solid sleep, have a consistent night-time routine. Minimise screen time and exposure to blue light before bed and buy a pillow spray to help you on your way to catching that all-important shut eye.

Motivation and Self-Confidence

Have the courage of your convictions. Do what you believe is right for you and don’t let outside influences affect your actions. Yes, you’re bound to make mistakes and trip up sometimes, but this is all part of the learning process. Keep your ultimate aims in mind and be confident in your decisions.

Top Tip: Create a mood board to visualise your goals and keep you motivated.
