-Set yourself some goals that you will be passionate about and will bring clarity to your life.
-Make sure you are making accomplishments, not just keeping busy.
-Work on making progress on what is most important to you on a day to day basis.
-When you can’t find time for quiet time, practice being in the moment of your daily activities. For example when you’re washing the dishes, focus only on washing the dishes. If you’re commuting, focus only on the commute, and on the other commuters around you.
-There are ways in which you can ensure you are living a life of your own conscious choices every single day. For example journaling, going on walks and goal reminders etc.
Keep a notebook or use the computer and type whatever comes to mind. Don’t focus on grammar, or spelling, just keep writing. If you feel the need to simply list a bunch of things that you need to do, list them. If you want to scribble and draw something, do so.
If you have a major problem that you keep worrying about, write about it even if you are unable to take action on it. This will allow you to either decide on the steps you need to solve it, or consciously accept it. That’s more comforting than simply deluding yourself and ignoring the problem.
When you are feeling stressed taking a long walk can help to calm your mind. Even when you are loaded with busy work, try and take the time to take a few minutes out of your day to go for one. Try observing the people, the buildings, the sky, the trees, and everything around you. This can help keep you in perspective and remind you that the world doesn’t revolve around you, or your work.
As much as you should be passionate about your goals, you often need to remind yourself of them. You could keep a scrapbook or journal which lists those goals. You could use pictures to depict what you want to achieve or simply write down in detail what you want. Some goals may seem unrealistic but if you really want it visualise it and put it down whether that is in words or pictures or your own creative way.
Remind yourself of these goals constantly."
