One of the first steps towards living the life you want is getting clear on what you actually want.
A few years ago I sat down and put together a detailed description of the lifestyle that I wanted.
It definitely wasn’t easy.
Knowing what the heck you want from your life seems easy, but it’s actually pretty hard to figure out.
Most of us find it difficult to commit to what we want.
One of the little tricks I learned that helped me out is to just focus on small tiny fragments of time instead of trying to figure out everything all at once.
So, it today’s blog post we’ll start with defining the very first part of your ideal lifestyle.
Defining Your Ideal Lifestyle – Waking Up
When you’re living your ideal lifestyle, what will it look like for you to wake up?
Imagine that you’re already living your ideal life and you’re now opening your eyes from sleeping…
… describe what that’s like…
Here are some questions that might help you out…
What type of bed are you sleeping on? Is it a single, double, queen or king sized?
What does the mattress feel like?
What do the covers feel like?
What do the sheets feel like?
What’s the temperature in the room?
Approximately what time is it?
How were you woken up? Was it an alarm clock? Did your spouse wake you up? Did you dog or cat wake you up? Did your kids wake you up? Did you just wake yourself up?
What do you see when you open your eyes? Is it a wall, a mirror, a lamp, a window, the ceiling, the sky, what do you see?
Is there someone else in the bed with you?
How does your body feel?
What are some of your first thoughts when you wake up?
Start with this…
Get a piece of paper out, and just write down the answers to these questions or think of your own questions and describe what would be your ideal lifestyle for waking up in the morning.
You may have several different scenarios, and that’s fine.
Write them all down.
This is the starting point for defining your perfect.
Once you’ve written this down, leave a comment below and describe some parts of what waking up looks like to you in your ideal lifestyle. 🙂
