Struggling To Bring Your Visions To Reality? It May Be Time For A Life Audit
Take charge of your life, don't let it take charge of you...
If you want to be in charge of your life rather than let it take charge of you, then it may be time for a Life Audit..

If you are a big dreamer but sometimes find bringing visions to reality a bit overwhelming, you will enjoy the process of projecting your thoughts into colourful Post-it notes.
Even more fun will be revisiting your goals (in a year or so) and seeing how magically things have shifted. Having a constant visual reminder to live an awesomely inspired life makes a huge difference - and makes directing your focus and energy much less daunting.
In January 2015 when I was a luxury PR Director, one of my goals was to do an online Nutrition course, something I had been procrastinating over for years. My master excuse - and I am not alone in this one, was, “I don’t have time”. A negative voice that brought self-doubting questions.
Questions like, “why would I do that?”, “how could I be so silly as to think I can follow my passions, dare to dream and become the CEO of my life?” and, “you do not have a plan, you have a safe career, why change?”.
Rationally staying in our comfort zone is always the safest option - it’s the nature of the body and mind to avoid pain. However, a deep urge to help others and a strong feeling that it was time to take the leap of faith. I quit my glamorous job nine months later and moved to the US to do a Healthy Holistic course at the Hippocrates Health Institute, and later studied Naturopath Biomedicine at CNM.
In January 2016, when I was living off my savings and panicking about how I was going to pay the rent on my lovely Chelsea flat, I wrote on my life audit board, “I want to employ and give opportunities to likeminded people who want to help others to live happier and healthier lives”. I could barely afford my bills with the amount of money I was making, but I was not short of ambition and drive!
Again, nine months later, in September 2016 I helped Joshua Clark to co-found METHOD Movement, a Fitness & Wellness Studio - a place to strengthen the body and the mind. Our vision is to offer fun and feasible solutions in an environment of good vibes.
Wherever you are looking to release stress, by sweating it out or in shavasana, we have a class for you. Our mission is to create a community-based movement and spread a message of ‘health beyond appearance, well-being beyond your being.’ I hope my story motivates you too!
Here are some simple steps on how to do a Life Audit:
