Why You Need to Take Control
Here's a question for you: Can you go a whole day without looking at your cell phone? Better yet, can you go a whole hour? Obviously, if you have a job where you have to put your cellphone to sleep for periods of time, then you probably do go hours without looking. But if you don't have any outside constraints, I bet you check it many times in any given hour. I know I do, and I have recently become aware of just how addictive the whole thing is.
7 Steps to Turn It Around
It's a lament I hear often: "Why do the same things keep happening? Why do I get in the same horrible relationships? Why do I pick the wrong jobs, wrong people, wrong everything? Why does everything always go wrong for me?!"
Sometimes everyone needs a reset. Life gets too crowded, energy pours out in every direction like a bad plumbing leak, problems abound, demands are high, and you are just worn out. This can leave you feeling depleted, overwhelmed, used up, fragmented, out of control, and discontent. These are signs that you have become disconnected from yourself. It's time for a reset.

Sometimes it happens in a one on one situation with a friend or colleague, and sometimes in a bigger arena like at a meeting at work where there is a brainstorming session to help solve a problem, and the suggestions are shut down as fast as they come up.
