The moment when change is necessary for your life can be challenging to pinpoint. Sometimes we seem to hover on the edge of change, waiting for a reason to push us over the precipice. This is not always the case, though. Sometimes the signs that you need to take a leap of faith instead of waiting to be pushed are right in front of us, we just need help identifying them.

  1. You’re Low on Energy and Bored
    You’re starting and ending your day with barely a drizzle of energy and feel bored by every moment of your day.
  2. You’re Apathetic
    You no longer care about your work, your home, or really anything pertaining to your existence. Note apathy is different from depression.
  3. You’re Jealous
    The lives of others seem intriguing and fun, and you find yourself being jealous of them.

What do you do if you relate to one or more of these signs? Take the necessary steps:

  1. Find What Energizes You
    There has to be some part of your day, even a tiny part, that you look forward to. Something that leaves you feeling invigorated and that you hate to move on from. Once you identify that little piece, take the time to explore how you can make that a more prominent part of your day. Can you spend more time reading or writing, or maybe you really enjoy cooking dinner nightly?
  2. Explore Your Interests
    Similar to finding what energizes you, consider what interests you have had in the past or have now. Go back to the basics of those interests and look for more ways to incorporate them into your life. This may include picking up a forgotten hobby or maybe seeking a career path that allows you to do what you love daily.
  3. Question Your Jealousy
    Jealousy can be an ugly burden to bear, but sometimes you need to question why you are jealous of someone else. Are you jealous of their personal work life? Are there changes you can make that will help you to align your reality with your desires? Questioning why you are insecure and how you can stop being jealous may open new doors of opportunity for you and give you an idea of what direction your changes should go.

If the signs of a needed change are hovering above you, stop wallowing in the discomfort of boredom, apathy, and jealousy. Take the steps necessary to create change and happiness in your life.
