There is no hiding the fact that life can be tough! There are certain times in life where your circumstances may have put you in a rut. It’s okay to admit that sometimes we need a little boost to help us get out. The good news is there are many things we can do to begin to make a change for the better. You have all of the power inside you to do a complete 360 if you are willing to make some crucial changes. Here are 20 simple ways to turn your life around.
1.) Get your attitude in check to turn your life around.
The truth is it is more about what you DO about what’s happening to you that was has actually happened to you. You see when you need to make some changes in your life you must first understand that it starts with you. You are in complete control when it comes to how you react to a situation. So if you find yourself whining, and complaining it’s time to take the focus off the problem, and on to the solution. This will make all of the difference.
2.) Turn off the t.v.
Now listen there is nothing wrong with chilling out and watching a Netflix movie every now and then. However, it is important to limit how much t.v. you watch and not make it a habit. T.V. can take up too much valuable time you need to stay focused and be more productive. So ditch the remote, and start working on something your future self will thank you for.
3.) Pick up a book.
Reading can give you a completely different point of view and is a refreshing activity. It is also stimulating and can give you ideas and creativity to find solutions to the problems your facing. It doesn’t have to be a daunting task. Just begin making it a habit to read 20 mins a day. You will be happy to see how it will turn your life around.
4.) Time to mind your money Hunny!
It is super important that you set a budget and a bill schedule for yourself. This takes all of those thoughts out of your head and gives you room to think about other important tasks. It also takes the stress out of worrying about having enough to cover everything…which leads to my next point.
5.) Start saving.
The wrong way to save is to pay yourself last. You work hard! Pay yourself a set amount first, and then budget for all of your other bills afterward. This will ensure you don’t get left hanging at the end of the month.
6.) Do a friend audit.
Yep! Its time to prune that friend list. If you have people in your circle who are not adding value or dragging you in the wrong direction it’s time to let them go. Now you can still be friendly and cordial but don’t give them too much of your time. When you are choosy about who you give time to in your life you will turn your life around in an instant!
7.) Live with intention.
Nobody just stumbles upon success. Unfortunately when people hear the word “goal” it’s like blah blah blah. I like to refer it to as “living with intention.” If you truly want to turn your life around it is imperative that you have a reason behind what you do every day. However, it must be more than to pay the bills ladies. Are the tasks you complete daily moving you forward to one day achieve the things you want to achieve? If not its time to do some thinking. The Level up Lady FREE resource library can show you exactly how to set daily intentions. Check it out HERE!
8.) Re-fuel your passion.
Got something that you LOVE to do, but maybe it has been put on the back burner? Re-fuel a passion that you have and see how much joy it sparks in your life. Try to make a commitment to do it regularly to keep your spirits high.
9.) Listen to inspirational and motivational content.
This one I do almost too much! I consistently have my AirPods in with some sort of valuable message. Whether it be spiritual, motivational, inspirational, empowerment whatever you need to get your juices flowing. You know what they say – “good stuff in, good stuff out.”
10.) Spend time solo.
You need time alone in order to listen to the real you! You will be far more productive when you are in tune with your spirit. It will guide you and help you make the right decisions about your next move. If you don’t like where you are now then you have to find out what exactly needs to change.

11.) Be a blessing to others.
There is no doubt that helping others is more joyful for the one being a blessing than the one receiving. When we help others is automatically gives us a feeling of value and contribution. There are many ways you can help others like volunteering or just being a companion to someone who needs you.
12.) Stop working a job that you hate or that is stressing you out.
Now listen there is always going to be some sort of stress in life. It doesn’t always have to take you over, but if it is sacrificing your health its time to think twice.
Not only should you can a job that wrecks your nerves you should also ditch one you hate! Now if you must work this job until you find something else that is completely understandable but make a plan. It’s bad for your soul to get up every day to go somewhere you cannot stand. A job does not always have to be amazing, but it needs to be halfway enjoyable to be worth it.
13.) Throw worry to the wayside.
Let it go! There is absolutely no sense in stressing about things you cannot control. Now if it is in your power to change it you should do it. However, if not release it to the universe and allow faith to take over.
14.) Get moving!
Walking, biking, running, whatever you need to do to get you moving. Exercise releases endorphins that make you feel amazing! Even though the thought of it can seem daunting at first, start small. You don’t have to be extreme just consistent and watch it turn your life around.
15.) Always be a learner.
Never stop learning. There is always something new to learn more about in life. One of the ways we can put ourselves in a rut is by staying stagnant, and not focusing on personal growth. So commit to being a learner every day.
16.) Take a stay-cation.
A new environment can create great new energy that will help you turn your life around. Take one day at a hotel near you, and just act like a tourist. Enjoy the different scenery, new people, and spend some time thinking about your next move.
17.) New mindset new life.
Most people truly do not understand the power of the mind. It creates everything we do. There is truth to the statement that “thoughts become things.” Every day we create our destiny by what we allow our minds to tell us. You are in control, and you must control your mind in order to control your life!
18.) Meet new people who add value.
You are influenced heavily by the people you choose to be around. If you have audited your friend’s list, and aren’t left with many to choose from its time for a new approach. One of the best ways to meet new people is to get serious about what you want to do in life and find people already doing it. Yes, you will surround yourself with people who know a lot more than you, but that is the point. Don’t allow insecurities keep you from valuable knowledge. Remember everyone who is an expert was also a beginner.
19.) Invest in YOU!
It Kills me to see a woman buy an awesome Kate Spade bad but will NOT put money into herself. Ladies, when you invest in you, you always win! Helping yourself gain the skills needed to become the best version of yourself, is never going to be a bad thing. So don’t be afraid! take the class, buy the course you are worth it!
20.) Just do it.
I have given you all the steps, now it’s time for you to execute. You can do it! I believe in you!
So Many Blessings,
