Recharging Your Life
Here’s a challenge for everyone: Let’s create a list of 100 WAYS TO RE-CHARGE.
I 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:
- 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.
- Mentor a new Canadian. We have so much to share and new Canadians are so receptive.
- Teach others how to do something. Seeing others grow and learn is so invigorating.
- Become a life long learner. Take courses, get a tutor, set a reading plan, join a book club – try new subjects to you.
- Learn to play a musical instrument, including your voice. It puts harmony in your life
- Learn a language. Encourage your children or grandchildren to join you.
- Trace your family history. It enhances your sense of connection to your roots.
- 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.
- Take up a new sport. Get some instruction first, then join a team or create one if it’s an individual sport.
- Trade homes with someone in another city or country. Great way to learn about other cultures and connect.
- Volunteer in pre-school or elementary school. Find you inner child; their energy is infectious.
