Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes Is It Time To Shake Things Up

There are times in just about everyone’s life where things start to feel a little stale. We all know the feeling. You and your family can all feel yourselves slipping into the same old routine, and none of you are really feeling that joy in life that you used to. The first thing you need to do? DON’T PANIC. This is totally normal!

It doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with your life and it certainly doesn’t mean that it’s time to abandon everything and go live in a cabin in the wood. But making a chance can be a fantastic way to bring your back that spark to your life that might be missing. With that in mind, here are some incredibly simple ways that you and your family can shake things up in your lives.

Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes Is It Time To Shake Things Up - Get Away for Awhile

Get away for a while

Sometimes, the best change that you can get is a change in perspective. Rather than feeling the need to make some kind of enormous, life-altering adjustment, sometimes it’s enough just to get away from your typical routine for a little while. Take a vacation together. Make sure that when you do, you leave your day-to-day life at home. You might even want to consider just taking an old cell phone for emergencies and leaving the smartphone, laptops, and tablets behind.

You’d be amazed at just how refreshing it can be to spend some time with your family without the constant interruptions that we’re all so used to in our modern lives. Getting a bit of space, not to mention some peace and quiet, can make things far easier when you come back. With a fresh perspective, you might well find yourself able to think differently about your life as a whole.

Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes Is It Time To Shake Things Up - Thing Big Think of Moving

Think big

Then again, maybe you and your family do need something more significant in order to get that spark back. Ask yourself, what is it exactly that you’re not getting out of life right now? It could be a lack of fulfillment in your work-life, and if that’s the case, it’s never been easier to switch careers no matter what stage of life you’re in. I might even be your environment.

It’s pretty common to feel like you’ve outgrown your home, not just physically but emotionally. What might have been the ideal place when you were a little younger, or your family was a little smaller, might seem like it’s holding you back now. If that’s the case, why not think about packing up, hiring a moving company, and finding somewhere new for you and your family to put down roots. Here’s a guide to see if it really is time for you to move because you’ve outgrown your house.

Get personal

Of course, there’s always a chance that the changes that you need to make aren’t external at all. It could be that your family is perfectly happy where they are and that your work is perfectly satisfying, and yet you can’t help feeling low a lot of the time.. If you feel like that’s the case, then it’s always worth taking the time to really think about what you want.

What are the changes that you can make in yourself to improve your life? Whether it’s your diet, your lifestyle, your social circle, or anything else at all, there are dozens of small, but significant changes that you can make to your life and yourself which can help you break out of that daze that the everyday routine of life can occasionally put you in.

  1. My children have all grown up but I do have 9 grandchildren who visit, but between those days I try to spend some time alone or with hubby. I think we all need that in our own personal space.

  2. Our kids have left the nest and live far away. Sometimes I just feel left out. Recently on the spur of the moment, my husband and I “left home” and stayed a few days in a small town nearby. We shopped in quaint vintage stores, met new friends and relaxed. Thank you again for sharing.

    • Oh Cheryl that sounds like an absolutely divine outing!!! I wish I could talk hubby into doing something like that!! We have very different tastes when it comes to what we want to do in our spare time or on a getaway lol!

  3. These are some great suggestions. I have been stuck in this low for a while. I really feel I need that vacation to get away from it all for a while. Thank you for sharing this great article

    • I feel the same way Linda! It’s time for a vacation … I’m getting a mini-vacation in two weeks … my daughter is whisking me away from Virginia to head back home to Pennsylvania to spend my 50th birthday with my sister! Spur-of-the-moment-surprise for me that I’m over the moon about. The hubby and the teenagers are staying here and fending for themselves lol!!! It’s a girls-only weekend!

  4. It is winter, and it feels extra long this year. A good vacation would be awesome. Something fun and get us out of the house.

    • I agree – we are feeling the same way … even though we didn’t get a lot of snow and it’s been a little milder than most winters – we didn’t get a *real* vacation last year (it’s been several years) so yeah we’re in the same boat. Definitely need a vacation to get away from everything!

THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO COMMENT. WE APPRECIATE YOU!
