Reinventing yourself is not about becoming a completely different person and letting go of who you have been all these years, but making positive changes in your life to be the best version of who you already are. Maybe you are feeling a little stuck, you don’t find passion in the things you do, or you lack the creative spark you used to have. These are signs that it might be time to make some changes and reinvent yourself.
Change Your Daily Routine
You can start by making some changes to your daily routine. Completely reinventing yourself from top to bottom is a little overwhelming, and might cause more confusion. A simpler way to switch things up is to start with either your morning or nighttime routine. Find a new activity or exercise, wake up earlier, add using a journal or planner to your routine, meditate, start a new routine with your family. Anything that is different and is good for you and helps you grow is going to be beneficial in your quest to reinvent yourself.
Switch Up Your Tasks
You can also look at your goals and to-do lists and start changing your tasks. You might even find that the goals you used to be so focused on, are no longer something you are interested in. You should never be afraid to make changes! Maybe you don’t want to run an online business anymore, but have your sights on starting a brick-and-mortar store. Or your passions have transformed from art to writing. Think about what you LOVE to do, especially when you aren’t getting paid for it, and let that inspire you to make positive changes.
Experiment with Something New
Try something brand new! Even if you are not sure it will work or that you will enjoy doing, just try it out. It is more about the experience than the end result. Talk to someone new, try a new activity, learn a new craft, go about your work meeting in a different way, take a different approach with your next project. Through this process, you learn more about yourself and often allow yourself to find a willingness to grow and change and improve.
Surround Yourself with Inspiring People
Want to feel more inspired? Find inspiring people! They are all around you, even in places you didn’t think to look. Putting yourself out there and talking to more people will help you find the people who really inspire you to reinvent yourself and your life. In this socially distanced time, connect with people in the ways that you can, even if it is digitally. Sometimes just a few minutes with an inspirational positive person, can add a spark to your life.
