Far too many people sleepwalk through their lives. They might be physically awake, but they’re living unconsciously and simply going through the motions from one day to the next. Are you one of them? If you answered yes, it’s never too late to wake up and feel more involved in your own life.
Take “Me” Time
Assess your schedule for the week and consider who you’re doing each activity for. Are you putting in long hours to build up someone else’s company or give your family security? You probably cook meals for your family or take your children to extracurricular activities to aid their personal development. But what do you do for you?
Saying you perform these tasks because you care for your family or about the company you work for isn’t enough. What’s just for you? If you don’t have an answer, you need more “me” time. Setting aside time each week to follow your passion, be it a yoga class, time to read, or coffee catch-ups with friends, will motivate you through the week and reinforce your sense of self.
Volunteering helps you feel more involved in your life because it reinforces your values. Without money as a motivator, you will find yourself drawn to opportunities which resonate with your true self. Maybe you’ll help out in a community garden because you value being a good environmental steward, or you’ll work in a soup kitchen because you believe we all deserve to have a good meal and be treated with dignity.
Don’t worry if you’re not sure what type of volunteering will suit you best. Evaluating your options will help you get in touch with yourself. If you’re unsure which path to take, a live psychic reading can help you discover what really matters to you and steer you towards the right volunteering role.
Grow Your Community
How many people do you engage with? Your family and your friends almost every day. Your colleagues between nine and five. In time, socializing with the same people can get pretty old. Expanding your community can help you get out of that rut.
Volunteering is a good way to do this, but it’s not your only option. Perhaps you could take a class and meet some more like-minded individuals. If there’s an issue you’re passionate about, consider joining a lobby group or attending protest rallies to make a difference. Growing your community will help you feel more involved in not only your own life, but also the lives of others.
This seems scary, but to really be involved in your own life you should look deep into yourself. What have you been pushing underneath the rug? What are you scared to deal with? Looking deep into yourself and facing your life head-on can be confronting, but it’ll also help you feel more involved. An authentic psychic or a therapist can guide you through this process.
So stop sleepwalking! Life’s too short to feel uninvolved in your own life.
