The Positive Effects of Pushing Your Life’s Reset Button

To reset means to set again, to restore, or resume operation. Everyone needs a reset from time to time.




I have had to reset many times throughout my lifetime. I not only had to reset in one area of life, but in all areas– career and finance, health and wellness, and relationships. The reset was necessary after experiencing loss and disruption interpersonally, financially, and after a minor health challenge. This ever-changing world is so unpredictable, and, on occasion, leaves us to face unexpected challenges that require us to RESET in order to move forward.

How do you know if you need a reset?

Has your life become mundane? Are you’re feeling burned out? Do you you no longer enjoy your current career path? Do you feel so bogged down that it seems like nothing is moving forward? Do you desire to continue or further your education? Are you experiencing stress, anxiety or health challenges? Do you feel there is something more to gain out of life’? Then, it’s time for a RESET.

Throughout my life’s journey, choosing to reset put me on the path to living my best life. Each obstacle or challenge I encountered, caused me to re-evaluate my life, make new decisions and implement changes. Resetting begins with a thought and followed by a decision. You must change your way of thinking about a situation in order to reset, implement change, and start something new.

What are the benefits of a reset?

The positive effects of resetting your life are numerous. You begin by visualizing something new and different for your life. Then you take action. They may be baby steps at first; however, implementing change ignites growth and leads to accomplishing new goals. Beginning a new thing can stir up feelings of happiness, excitement, and a greater sense of purpose.

Personally, I have not always enjoyed having to reset, but I have grown tremendously. And, with every season of reset, I have experienced advancement.

Ready, Set, RESET!
