How to Start a New Life in 6 Steps
Begin Your Transformation
At some point in your journey on this earth, you may decide to make a major life change and start a new life. Perhaps you’re ending a long-term relationship, moving to a completely new city (or country!), embarking on a healthy lifestyle or switching careers. Whatever your new life looks like to you, you’re sure to feel various emotions during this revolutionary time, as well as experience some growing pains. Starting a new life can feel like a daunting task, and it is, but it doesn’t have to feel impossible.
Do you need to talk through this next stage in your life? Our life path psychics are waiting to take your call!
Make Change More Manageable
There are certain steps you can take to make this period of growth more manageable—and to ensure that you’ll come out the other side thriving. Here’s a six-step plan to start a new life. It will help you weather changes with courage and self-awareness, and it’s guaranteed to make you feel empowered too.
1. Envision the Life You Want
This period of change is a great time to do some soul-searching regarding how you want your new life to look and feel. Ask yourself:
- Why is my current life unfulfilling?
- What are my new priorities?
- What will truly make me happy?
- If I could be or do anything, what would it be?
Use these questions as a jumping-off point to dream up your new life and start toward it on the right foot as well.
2. Start a Journal
Now is the ideal time to put pen to paper (or start a Word document on your computer) so you can devote some time to jotting down your feelings about starting a new life. Write down your goals, needs, fears, and expectations. And don’t worry about writing in complete sentences or even writing at all—you may be inspired to draw pictures. You may also want to include some inspirational quotes. The important thing is that you’re creating a record of your journey that will help you stay on track so you can get to where you want to be.
3. Focus on Self-Care
During this time, it’s imperative that you put your attention where it belongs—on you! The stress of wanting to start a new life can be difficult to manage, so having a strong self-care routine is critical for transitioning with ease. Be sure that you’re getting ample sleep, that you’re exercising and eating right, and that you’re devoting your time to positive endeavors that will help you along. This is not the time to waste your energy by being around people who try to dissuade you from your goals, or to let taking care of yourself fall by the wayside.
4. Take the First Step Toward Your New Future
Whatever it is that you’re embarking on or moving toward, it can’t happen until you decide to take that very first step. If you’re ending a relationship, get rid of the items your ex gifted you. Remove photos of you two from around your home too. If you’re seeking a new career path, revisit your resume. If you’ve decided to make a significant lifestyle change, clean out your pantry and also donate or trash foods that will hinder you from meeting your goal. Starting a new life starts with one simple step—then continues as you take another, then another, and then another.
5. Stay on Track by Asking for Help
Enlist a friend or family member to be your accountability partner as you start a new life. This person can be a sounding board for you as you make this transition. They can even encourage you to remain on this new path when you get discouraged. Having a cheerleader will help you feel less alone and make you more likely to keep going—even when it’s hard.
6. Look Back on Your Progress
Don’t forget to look back from time to time to see how far you’ve come. Each month, read a few old journal entries or scroll through photos of your past life to remind yourself who you were then and who you’re becoming. You might even consider meditating on what your life would be like right now if you didn’t make a change. Seeing this tangible transformation over time will certainly continue to inspire you as you do the work to start a new life.
