It’s a good habit to check in with yourself every once and a while; being in tune with your wants, needs, and ambitions will help you become a happy and fulfilled person. Here is a list I gathered from my favorite book, Hip Tranquil Chick by Kimberly Wilson – follow along and put your own rating in each of the categories.
Areas of My Life
• Home-life (9)
• Career (8)
• Self-care (7)
• Health (7)
• Relationships[& Socialization] (6)
• Creativity (5)
• Finances (3)
• Spirituality (3)
- Rate each category 0-10 based on your satisfaction. 0 means not satisfied at all, and 10 means you are completely satisfied.
- Next, take the bottom three categories and make a list of things you can do to improve these categories.
Creativity: Choose to write, draw, decorate, or choreograph daily
Finances: Get another job (in progress), and spend less than I make
Spirituality: Become more involved in my college’s campus ministry (in the works!)
*Once you are finished filling out your needs and goals, reflect on them.
-Are these goals realistic?
-How can I make my goals become a reality?
Try doing this at least once per month. Once you finish a goal, start a new one!
Best of luck,
