31 Day Reset – Day 9 – Life Map

When I saw this exercise, I had no idea of how to create a life map. Although I downloaded the 31 day reset workbook, I though I was supposed to find some special software or go to excel and create a fancy little chart that represented the life map. I am also a few days late on completing this exercise because I have been off this week so I have been spending time with my family. Anyway, let me get to the topic at hand. I took the time to create a map of what my life would look like if I was living my ideal life, compared to how things are actually going in my life based on seven areas.Those seven areas that I did a life assessment on are: Lifestyle, Work, Education, Finance, Health, Family and Relationships.

– once every three months my daughter and I enjoy a spa weekend at a local day spa
