Here we are again – Monday. Some people get excited while majority go ‘ugh.’ Perhaps you feel like you’re in the same rut:
Do you ever get bored with your routines? Does this leave you feeling frustrated with them, or wanting to stop and begin anew? Do you often feel as if you are wanting more, which then leads to feeling dissatisfied or even hating what you have?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you probably are dealing with restless syndrome; this form of self-sabotage can deter you and possibly rob you of having a fulfilling life.
Restless Syndrome basically means that one is always looking for excitement, or the ‘next big thing.’ This can include being bored with where you live, unhappy with your relationship or your job; this can sound like “I want a fresh start” or “I just want something more – I’m just not sure what that is.” Restless individuals can ruin a good thing or cheat themselves out of a good job, relationship, or just feeling happy. The reasons are too lengthy to describe here but it is often born out of some type of fear and poor ego-strength; it can be a way of avoiding or facing the very thing feared.
If you suffer from feeling restless, the best ‘therapy’ is to keep doing the thing you feel like running from; take inventory on what you like and what you don’t; after all, you can’t ‘fix’ what you don’t know. Once done, see how you can become more engaged in that activity so you will feel more satisfied. Do this for 30 days; at the end, if you still feel restless or wanting the change, then see what you can do to make a change and then work to go after it; doing so will help you to feel more in control and empowered. (Don’t be surprised if you find you don’t want to make changes after all).
Your Weekly Action Plan
This week, look at areas you may feel dissatisfied with, be they in your personal life or your professional life and follow the steps above; take the short quiz to see how you rank. If after doing the steps you find you are ready for a change, be ready to make those changes and take action, as delaying can add to your level of restlessness.
“If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is a compromise.” Robert Fritz
