We all get stuck in ruts from time to time. You know you’re in a rut when every day seems the same, and those days aren’t very enjoyable. After a while, it’s hard to know the best way to bring about the changes that can make life exciting, interesting, and enjoyable again. Ruts tend to be self-perpetuating and require a decent amount of energy to get back out.
- Realize that your discomfort is a good sign. As humans, we tend to feel uncomfortable when we experience change in our lives.
- Find a passion or interest to add to your life. Now’s the perfect time to take up yoga or MMA. If you’ve always wanted to learn how to paint or try out mountaineering, go for it!
- Find Accountability partners. We are more likely to stick with things when we have a group or network that is encouraging and doing the same things we are.
