Take a Day to Change Your Life


You've got some things in your life you'd like to change. Maybe they are major and maybe you consider them minor changes, but either way you've been wanting to live your life differently in some ways and you just haven't seemed to be able to actually make any changes that stick. Perhaps you're in a bit of a rut or you're too occupied with just getting through each day to attend to your personal needs. What you need is one single day devoted to you and your focus to change your life - in slight or significant ways.
Of course there is planning involved, as there is with anything of importance. You need to start by planning the date. Will you take a sick day or devote a non-working day to this endeavor? Do you need to take into account some travel time - just so you don't fall into the trap of doing things and going places that you are already used to. Do you want to plan a 'rain date' if you're planning activities that take you outside? (which you should be doing.) Make sure you have at least 8-10 hours of the day to fully give yourself the time for various activities that engage your true spirit.
Next to plan is what you will do with your day. I can't give you a step-by-step rundown of what you should do and how long you should take for each aspect, as I don't know what the ideal activities are for you. You know best and even if you don't get it figured out by the end of this article, I have faith that you will figure it out on the day or by the date you are planning for. What I will give you is some ideas and a bit of background on what you may want to do to make that internal shift to be able to define and establish the changes you need to make.
Your day of change is a time to not do anything that you regularly do. You will be filling the day with things that you've wanted to do but haven't found the time or initiative. It's only a day though, so choose wisely! Have you want to stroll around an art gallery? explore a historical location? spend some time in a certain natural setting? visit a zoo or other animal conservatory? You should try to fit a few different activities like this in your day to give you a range of experiences to grow from. You want to provide yourself the start to some paradigm shifting so you can get a feel for what is valuable in your life.
What about some physical changes? Nothing helps you get out of a rut like new clothing or a new hairstyle. These are activities that are only effective for your day of change if it's a somewhat drastic change. This day is not for shopping for the fun of it and getting your hair trimmed up for a good time at the salon. A new look will help you by being a reminder of the changes you want to ease into and looking at your life, and your physical self, in a new way.
Your life-changing day will be the day to nurture your mind, body and soul with time alone, new experiences and an open mind to the possibilities. You should be spending time in nature, providing yourself time to write down your assessment of the changes you want to make, experiencing creative nourishment and experiencing all of this in solitude. A little human contact is OK, but this is a day to connect with yourself and your creator to develop a game plan for the rest of your life - or at least a focus for the next few years. Change doesn't happen overnight or in a day, but taking a whole day to really focus on your purpose in this life will be the catalyst to making those changes for a satisfying and meaningful life that is a blessing to you and all those around you.
