The Tell-Tale Signs You Need a Change

Updated: Oct 12, 2022

The tell-tale signs you need a change? They're hiding in plain sight!

If you want to live your best life, it’s imperative you recognize when a change is needed. If it feels like an uphill struggle to make the changes you desire in your life, it could be that you’re not convinced a change is needed. If you procrastinate instead of putting change into action, then perhaps it’s something you secretly dread, rather than look forward to.

Yet, it could be that you haven't really thought about it and haven't realized that it's time to create a huge plot twist in your life.

So, how exactly can you recognize that change is needed in your life? Below, you’ll discover some of the common signs to look out for.

You feel lost or stuck in life

Do you feel like both feet are stuck in the mire and you’ve lost your purpose? This is a sure sign that you need to change it up. Everyone has a purpose, but it isn’t always easy to identify it. Also, your purpose can change as you get older and go through life’s experiences. So, if you feel like your life isn’t your own anymore, it’s time to stop and reassess.

Your mood is consistently flat

Another sign change is needed is if you find your mood is constantly flat. Like you don’t really enjoy anything anymore, it’s just all seems ‘meh’ all the time. Simply feeling constantly flat is another indicator your life isn’t satisfying.

Think about the things that used to make you get your groove on. It could be that you once enjoyed your career. If you now don’t like your job, it’s a sign you need to make a change to get back to feeling that initial excitement. Look back into the past, as your hindsight will give clues as to what needs the heave-ho to make room for the woo-hoo! But remember to look forward with kind-sight and be kind to yourself as you reorientate yourself to your own north star.

You suffer with poor self esteem

Low self-esteem can develop for a lot of different reasons. However, it tends to be more prevalent in those who don’t take care of themselves. If you lack self-care, you may criticize yourself more or feel like you aren’t worth much.

Over time, poor self-esteem can lead you to feel like you don’t deserve good things in life. This in turn can cause you to give up trying to be happy. If you suffer with poor self-esteem, it is a huge sign you need a mahoosive change.

You have very little energy

Having little energy throughout the day could be a sign of poor sleep. But it can also relate to a deeper issue if you are constantly tired. It may mean that you have lost your passion and interest in life. When you spend a lot of time doing things that don’t inspire you, it can zap your energy quickly. Likewise, spending time with those energy vampires is simply so draining.

So, if you wake up feeling tired and drained consistently, perhaps you need more self-care in your life. Through taking care of yourself, you’ll begin to feel energized and ready to take on anything. It’s important to remember that self-care includes getting professional help when you need it, whether it’s the doctor, dentist, optician, fitness instructor, beautician or your hairdresser, assess what you need and make that appointment.

Put yourself first. As they say, you can't pour from an empty cup. It's not selfish, it's selfless to give others your best self. But it's also important to recognize when you need to put up firm boundaries and not allow others to take up your mental and emotional bandwidth and leave you with nothing!

As you can see, there are a lot of signs that could point to the fact you need a change. Self-care can really help to improve self-esteem, give you a sense of purpose and help to make you feel happier and more energized.

So, if you want to make a change, recognize where your current issues lie and use self-care to eliminate them.

It’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and to make your happiness a priority. It’s necessary.”
– Mandy Hale
