Step into a new year with a new attitude
Human beings love a challenge.

It's what keeps us alive, pulsating and eager to try new things.

When you feel uninspired, like when your life is on hold or you are not going anywhere, kinda like treading water, you need to take on something bigger and better!

So what to do? Stay in the status quo? Sure. It's comfy there. You don't have to change a thing. Just don't complain about your life.

Remember: we all have choices.

Perhaps a question you may like to ask yourself entering a new year is - if I keep doing the same thing I'm currently doing, will I feel any happier and fulfilled at the end of another year?

If your answer is no, then take heed my fellow friend.

Take steps towards a better you


Here's a few suggestions to help wake yourself up again:

1. Take a hike. Walking in nature is one way to re-connect with your essential self. Fresh air and exercise is also invigorating.

2. Plan a trip. Go somewhere totally different. Step outside your comfort zone, whether it's helping overseas in an orphanage or taking on the Kokoda Trail or snorkelling off a beach. It could be just pitching a tent in a quiet rainforest park. There are many budgets to suit every situation.

3. Face any inner fear with courage. We all have fears. The way we grow stronger is by taking on challenges that we didn't think we could accomplish. And with each step along the way, we grow stronger from within.

4. Attend a retreat that's designed to help you reflect on yourself. How many of us give ourselves the opportunity to simply "be" for a few days? Simply nurturing our bodies and minds directly influences our souls. Our inner life beckons for change and happiness.

5. Think about where your at and where you'd like to be. If life is not the exciting journey that you thought it was going to be, seek some time with your essential self and tune into your needs. Go with the flow. Listen to your intuition and allow it to lead you into greener pastures.
