Recharging Your Life

Here’s a challenge for everyone:  Let’s create a list of 100 WAYS TO RE-CHARGE.

CrandellI found 57 ways to re-invent yourself in Susan Crandell’s  book, Thinking About Tomorrow – Re-inventing Yourself in Midlife . and it got me to thinking about the many ways we recharge ourselves.  We don’t have to re-invent ourselves to get a new lease on life and work.

 

What can you add?  Here’s my list:

  1. Explore/study/read about intuitives. You may think it’s hokey, but It helps to open our minds to new ways of thinking about our world – medical, spiritual, indigo children.
  2. Mentor a new Canadian. We have so much to share and new Canadians are so receptive.
  3. Teach others how to do something. Seeing others grow and learn is so invigorating.
  4. Become a  life long learner.  Take courses, get a tutor, set a reading plan, join a book club – try new subjects to you.
  5. Learn to play a musical instrument, including your voice.  It puts harmony in your life
  6. Learn a language.  Encourage your children or grandchildren to join you.
  7. Trace your family history.  It enhances your sense of connection to your roots.
  8. Join or start a community choir. We all crave community these days, and this can be such a healing experience.  To learn more about the Gettin Higher Choir in Victoria.
  9. Take up a new sport. Get some instruction first, then join a team or create one if it’s an individual sport.
  10. Trade homes with someone in another city or country. Great way to learn about other cultures and connect.
  11. Volunteer in pre-school or elementary school. Find you inner child;  their energy is infectious.
