28 Jun 7 ways to turn your life around when things seem to be falling apart
No one will be happy all the time.
Happiness is not something we can, or should expect to experience 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
But when happiness does seem distant, or hard to find, there are still things we can do to hold strong and get back to where we want to be…

“How do you turn your life around when everything falls apart?”
First things first.
Before you can accomplish anything in the present you must first eradicate your guilt and shame about the past.
In this question, you asked “How do you turn your life around when everything falls apart”
Not, “How can I transform my life and achieve my dreams”
This question is coming from a place of pain and scarcity and I’ll be honest with you … I get it.
Life can be brutal at times and it can feel like there’s no hope.
But it’s in times like this where you must shift your focus from the sh*t storm happening around you and behind you and instead focus on the rainbow and pot of gold that you’re moving towards.
With that out of the way here is a simple 7 step formula to turn things around when it all goes wrong.
Step 1: Double down on your health and fitness
Whenever life gets crazy, the first thing that takes a hit is our health and fitness.
When we get stressed at work or at home, it’s easy to slack off in the gym, eat more comfort foods, and generally abandon our well being.
If things are falling apart in your life then THE most important thing that you can do to get your life back on track is to:
- Lift heavy weights 4X a week and sprint once a week
- Eat a whole foods diet with only one serving of meat a day
- Sleep 8–9 hours a night
- Prioritize rest, relaxation, and recovery
You won’t be able to find a solution to your problems if you are constantly stressed out, low energy, and lethargic.
High achievement (in any area of life) is a direct result of high levels of energy and enthusiasm.
Before you move onto the next step, I want you to write down three ways you’re going to prioritize your health TODAY and leave your response in the comments below.
You can’t pull yourself out of the rut you’re in without great health. Reclaim your fitness and vitality, and you’ll reclaim your life.
Step 2: Express daily gratitude for what you already have
This response probably pisses you off… And I get it.
When the crap hits the fan the last thing anyone wants to hear is “Be grateful for what you have”.
But it’s true.
The fact that you even have a device where you can ask this question here on Quora shows me that you have something to be grateful for.
If you have a roof over your head, food in your stomach, and breath in your lungs, then you have something to be grateful for … Period.
Starting today, I want you to commit to 30 days of ZERO complaining and daily gratitude. Keep a journal next to your bed and write down five things you’re grateful for every morning and evening.
I promise it will change your life…
