Have you ever had this feeling at any particular point of time in your life, when you literally felt directionless. The feeling like what next?? What now?? or which way to go or what option to choose?? I guess yes! you know what, I feel people get this feeling because of two reasons in particular.
No. 1 The availability of too many options, that confuses us to death.
No.2 The non-availability of any good options that also obviously stresses us to death.
So, what is this feeling of directionless?
Okay, let me admit this, it is a feeling and I actually do not have any idea whether there is any work or research done upon it or not. If done, then it is well and good. But, if not done, then I guess we all need to start from the scratch. Basically, the feeling of directionless happens at certain diverging points of your life. Like for instance, when choosing a proper career for yourself after college or let’s say when you are not satisfied with your career and wants to reconsider your options.
Mostly it happens with the youth, after college. Because till college it’s a totally different life, but after college, the sudden load of all the responsibilities to earn your money and giving up on the carefree life could often impact the youth in a wrong manner. Nowadays, we have lots of options, when it comes to choosing a particular career choice, so naturally it is quite obvious to feel overwhelmed by all the choices that could either confuse us or stress us.
Many of the young lot who started out early, may not be quite happy and satisfied with their careers and might even be thinking of reconsidering their decisions and starting out on a new venture, this may be twice as difficult for them also.
No matter how sorted you are, there will be a point of time when you are bound to feel like “Enough I could not do this, let me give up.” There will be points when you will frustrated and depressed and at times even you will feel angered on yourself. You know what humans are by nature not so brave hearted, there is a feeling within each one of us, a voice basically that comes from within us, that will prompt us to give up, it will demotivated us and even urge us to give up. It will provide visions of numerous hardships in front of us. But, don’t get fooled, do not let the fear speak to you and dominate your spirits. If you feel for something, go for it. just don’t let that inner voice reign your mind and soul and make you directionless.
Directionless is basically a feeling where you feel like you are lost in the middle of no where. it happens when you are not sorted enough. it is feeling like you are losing focus of your aim/goal. You know all of us do have certain goals or aims. But, the problem is that we sometimes could not find out the right route to reach it. Every time it is not necessary that you will find well polished red carpet spread for you. sometimes you have to make way through carpet of weeds and thorns too. Smart people do not remain directionless for a long time, they might feel lost initially, but they will soon learn about the route and embark on their journey.
It’s okay to feel lost once in a while, but if it is frequent or if it has become a habit, then I will show you how to get rid of this feeling of directionless from your life totally and be more happy, successful and optimistic with your life.
# 1. Sort out your priorities. It is very important. The main benefit from sorting your priorities is that it sorts your life in return. It sorts your mind. For instance, how do you feel when your house is cluttered everywhere? Do you feel organised? Definitely NO. In the same manner, if you do not remove the excess clutter from your mind, by sorting your priorities, then how come will you feel organised? And tell me, if you do not feel organised, will your life feel organised? Think for yourself.
# 2. After sorting out your priorities, make a to do list to achieve your goal/aim, whatever you have envisioned basically. Making a to-do list is important because it lets you stay on track. In such a manner you will be saved from taking any wrong step or making any wrong move.
# 3. Make a routine, a daily routine for yourself and try to stick to it as much as possible. It helps you to put a standard level of effort day in and day out so that your consistency and motivation do not drop at any point of time. And even if it drops, you will not have much time to fuss about and think about it. the reason is you will be busy putting all your efforts and energy towards accomplishing your goal or attaining your target.
#4. Workout and exercise daily. You might think that why I have included exercise in this list. But the reason is that exercise actually works as an anti-depressant plus it give you a healthy body. So a benefit with an added benefit.
# 5. Make meditation a part of your life. See meditation is an escape in today’s fast paced, stressful life. We regularly clean our phones of any junk files that is accumulated, but what about our mind. Day in and day out we take in a lot of junk files in the form of depression, stress, worries, fears and doubts. Just think, what will happen, if you do not clean it in time. They will eat you up from the inside, in simple words they will feed up on all your positive energy and optimism. Are you scared? So how do you clean these unnecessary junk from your mind? Simple, in one word MEDITATE. Make it a daily habit. Try to meditate every morning, after waking up and before going to bed.
# 6. Try to be in close sync with nature. If you do not have any access to proper nature or if you live in city, where all you could find are towering buildings, then create your own nature zone at your place. It’s simple you could just start with flowering plants or leafs in beautiful pots. They will both add beauty to your interiors and add the necessary green peace to your life.
# 7. Read aloud your own affirmations every day as soon as you wake up or carry it with you wherever you go. As soon as you feel low, flip the pages and read it to yourself. If you do not have any idea what affirmations are, then check it out here.
# 8. Eat healthy, this is probably important, but we tend to ignore it. So, I guess probably it’s time we give healthy eating its due credit, because you are what you eat.
# 9. Be happy. Try to surround yourself with people who only lifts you higher. It’s always a good idea to be alone, then to lonely in the midst of those people, who demotivates you.
# 10. Continuous work can sometimes bring monotony to your life. No matter how much you love your work, but that’s not everything. Take out time to enjoy the little joys of life. Take a break in a while and head for some vacations with your loved ones. They will cherish and you will enjoy too.
