It’s important to have your priorities straight so you’re living a life of purpose and fulfillment that feels good for you.
This way, you know what is important to you and you’re more in line with your intentions and what you really want out of life.
This means setting aside an afternoon or a block of time where you shut off your phone, put pen to paper and tell yourself that, even though you have a million things going on, this is a priority.
Analyze your life and figure out what kind of changes you need to make. If you feel like you have no time to do this, then honestly, that's even more of a reason for you to reflect.
You have to check those priorities with reality. Keep track of how much time you truly spend on things each week, for at least a week or maybe two. Finally, compare the reality of your time with your ideal priorities.
Make appropriate changes so your reality matches what really matters most to you.
When we feel overwhelmed it can be challenging to figure out what our priorities are because everything can feel equally as important. A great tip to keep your priorities straight is to make a list of everything weighing on your mind. Once you see it in front of you, it already starts to feel more manageable. From there, rate each item on a scale from one to ten on its importance. By doing this you will be able to determine which priorities should come first.
