You Make Unhealthy Choices
When you are unhappy or suffer from low self-worth, you are much more likely to make unhealthy choices. Drinking too much alcohol, opting to stay at home instead of exercising, eating to excess, not getting proper sleep, and retreating from your social circles are all signs that you are unhappy, and change is needed.
We all have vices and bad habits that seem to creep up again and again in our lives. The times they are most likely to make an appearance, though, are those when we are at our unhappiest and most vulnerable. These behaviors represent our emotional crutches, the ones we lean on when all else has failed. When you notice these patterns creeping back into your life, it’s time to pay attention.
Are you often wishing you were your friend, family member or co-=worker? Do you wish you were someone else? This is a telltale sign that you are dissatisfied in some way. Consider what the envy is all about. Write it down. Then consider the source of the envy. Do you really want what those people have or who they are? Pinpoint the reasons for the envy and you will understand where your reinvention should begin.
You Are Disengaged
When you notice that you are detaching from your life, spending more time plodding through than actively participating, you are ready to reinvent yourself. If you spend a good deal of your time just going through the motions or if you lost passion for significant pieces of your life, you are ripe for transformation.
Disengagement can look like a lot of things. If you live your days waiting until it’s time for bed, your week longing for the weekend, and your life biding time until your next vacation, then you are not very engaged in the here and now. You are ready to reinvent.
