Making sense of a new life

The way we see our life is not always the way it is: we might find that there is no point, or believe that we are at a dead end. This section will guide you to make sense of your new life.

In order to make sense of one’s new life, one should first take the time and clarify their goals for the future, reflect on their previous accomplishments and explore the opportunities ahead. 

They should then create a plan on how they want to go about this goal. For example, if someone wants to be more creative in their work, they should ask themselves questions such as what kind of things inspire them and how can they integrate this into their work? 

What are some tactics that could help them be more creative?

Strengths Assessment: The goal of the strength assessment is to identify our individual strengths. To complete this assessment, we should read the list of items so that they become familiar with the process and then rank their importance on a scale from 1-7.

Define Your Goals And Break Them Down Into Steps – Setting Realistic Goals And Deadlines

One of the most important steps in setting realistic goals and deadlines is to define your goals. What are your goals? 

Do they relate to aspects of your physical and mental health, relationships, work, finances, or family?

Setting realistic goals is crucial to achieving them. Goals should be specific, measurable and attainable. 

They should also be relevant to who you are as a person. Specificity in goal-setting ensures that you know what behaviour changes need to take place for successful goal achievement.

For example: losing weight is not a specific goal because it does not tell us what needs to happen for the person (e.g., eating fewer calories). 

Losing weight by eating less would be an attainable goal – a behaviour change that needs to take place for success.
