Here's a Method that's Helped Me Find Direction in My Twenties


If you don't like your life now, how do you want it to be?

This blog post is in response to Natalie’s 10 Day Freedom Plan Blog Challenge Day 3

It can be so hard deciding which career to choose. A great first step is to get a clear idea of what you want your life to be like. From this you can create goals and give yourself something to work towards.

A great way of getting clear about how you want your life is to decide what your Perfect Day would be like.

Knowing exactly how you want to spend your days will give you a great sense of the direction you want to go in. It'll break your big dreams down and make them seem more achievable.

In Natalie Sisson's 10 day Freedom Plan blog challenge she explains how to create your Perfect Day. I really recommend taking the challenge but for now here are 3 tips for creating your Perfect Day:

1. Dream big

2. Write in the first person and present tense

3. Include all 5 senses so you can really visualise living it. 

For some inspiration, here's mine:

"I wake up feeling rested after a great night's sleep. I happily get out of bed, make myself a cup of warming tea and snuggle back into bed to read my book for a while.

After a while, I get up and make myself some breakfast before going for a walk in peaceful nature (with my dog of course). When I get back home, I sit at my desk, admire the view and work for 4 hours or so.

After a healthy lunch outdoors I go out either to take a fun class, meet friends or to do something else active outdoors.

I get home in the evening, have a yummy dinner and chill out watching a TV series with Jason."
