Sometimes life wears you down - even the most successful, happy, lucky people experience fatigue with their situations. It can be easy to become bored or stressed out with your regular routine, or perhaps you have found yourself outgrowing certain situations or people that previously served you well.

A lot of people push back against the feeling that they need a fresh start, simply because they are scared. Listening to the urge to start afresh would mean uprooting your life and taking steps in a new direction - in short, it involves going out of your comfort zone.

Despite the fears you might experience at the idea of a fresh start, that doesn’t mean you should ignore the signs when they arrive. In this blog we will delve into three signs that you need a fresh start in your life.

You are becoming easily frustrated or irritated by small things.

It can be easy to get into the habit of negative thinking, and if you have fallen prey to this pattern, that doesn’t automatically mean you need a total life overhaul. However, feeling irritated or easily bogged down by the little things in life can signify that you are feeling hemmed in. If you were happy with how things were going in your current circumstances, you might not feel so easily sidelined by small inconveniences.

As we said, just because you are easily annoyed, it doesn’t mean you need to start researching cross country moving - although you could! It just means you might need to re-evaluate what is happening in your life that might be causing you anxiety or stress, and let that aspect of it go.

You daydream about living another life, away from the people or places you know.

This is a telltale sign that you aren’t happy living in the here and now. Everybody daydreams about living their fantasy life sometimes, and this is normal, even healthy, in moderation. Nevertheless, if you feel yourself drifting off into fantasy land every single day or for intense periods of time, it could be that your mind is telling you something’s not right.

Being more present can be difficult, when the present reality isn’t making you happy. If you are drifting off into daydreams often, you should take a look at your situation, and perhaps admit it’s time for something to change. Turning your dreams into a reality can be tough, but it’s better than staying where you aren’t feeling fulfilled.

You feel like your life isn’t heading anywhere.

Just like the others in this list, feeling like your life isn’t heading anywhere is inevitable sometimes. Life isn’t always exciting all the time - sometimes things are kind of boring, and that's okay.

However, if this feeling sticks around for a while, it could be time for a shift. It might be that your job, relationship, housing situation or mental health needs some attention, and maybe even a big change.
Final Thoughts

Admitting that you need a new start can be difficult, but the moment you accept it, you’ll be starting your journey towards being the best version of yourself!
