How to Get Off Autopilot in Your Life
If you find yourself going through the same motions day after day, never remembering what you did the day before, having nothing to look forward to, living your life - but never enjoying it or anything in it...you are most likely living your life and the relationships in it on autopilot.
The most devastating aspect of living life on autopilot, especially when it comes to your relationships, is that you don't even realize it half of the time. You're just living your life, wishing for more but not knowing what it is or how to get it. While many people live their entire lives on autopilot (which is truly sad), the only way to have an enriching and successful lives and relationships is to be wholly aware and adaptable in life. So, how do you go about doing that?
1. Take a moment to smell the roses (literally:). Take the time to notice all the little things around you that you used to detect when you were six!
2. Consider your short and long-term objectives. Do you still have any of those? And, if so, have you forgotten about them? Rewrite that list and begin working on your next short-term goal.
3. Do you recall your relationship? When was the last time you experimented with them? When was the last time you wished you could? Stop "being in it" and start thinking about your relationship.
Finally, there's a reason you're on autopilot. Your life is out of kilter. It's either too stressful, too complicated, or too dull, or you've given up and let your life become "routine." Take one day this week to reflect on your life. Your connection. What can you do to shake things up? Can you make them attractive? How can you reclaim your sense of balance and fall back in love with your life?
