Long term vision setting is where you define your aspirations, it’s about picturing where you want to be in 10 years or 20 years. Essentially it helps you define what’s going to matter to you in the long term.
Reflection is about taking the time to evolve and grow. It’s a tool to reflect on the events of the day and unpack the good the bad and pull out any learnings that might otherwise go un-noticed.
Goal setting is an opportunity for you to map out the things you want to achieve. Each goal is broken down into milestones and mid-steps to help map out an actionable plan.
Doing it all is possible, but it’s also overwhelming. There is a need to understand what is important to us individually so we can prioritize accordingly. This will help to reduce stress and increase happiness.
On average, Millennials and Gen Xers report higher levels of stress than Boomers and Matures (6.0, 5.8, 4.3 and 3.5 on a 10-point scale, respectively) and have done so since 2012.
Millennials are faced with a consent stream of simulated perfection and it’s hard not to feel a sense of FOMO. Comparing themselves to others is only a click away.
This 'give me more' and 'I want that' attitude can be detrimental to us both physically and mentally. In fact, recent studies have shown that FOMO is linked to feelings of dissatisfaction. "The problem with FOMO is the individuals it impacts are looking outward instead of inward," McLaughlin said. "When you're so tuned in to the 'other,' or the 'better' (in your mind), you lose your authentic sense of self. This constant fear of missing out means you are not participating as a real person in your own world."
What am I doing with my life?
At some point or another everyone takes a moment to pause, look up and question where they are, how they got there, and what they are doing.
Approximately 40% of your happiness is truly up to you.
