2022 Lessons Learned So Far
We’re only halfway through the year, yet so much has happened. Here’s MOBILESTYLES’ 2022 lessons learned so far.
Just over half the year is over, and it’s been a wild ride. Here are the 2022 lessons learned so far.
Keeping these lessons in mind will help you avoid falling into the same old cycles and propel you into the future.
The past few years have been intense for everyone. The pandemic affected everyone on a global scale, both internally and externally. Although things have slowed down, it can be easy to feel lost in a whirlwind of events or emotions. Grounding yourself and reflecting on what you've experienced so far is essential. Here are our top 2022 lessons learned up until now.
Balance is key
We've all heard cliches on moderation and balance. The funny thing is that these seemingly hollow statements can often ring true. It's incredibly easy to tip the scales of your life in one direction — maybe you've been chasing your career too hard and neglected your personal life. Or it could be that you've had a bit too much fun and lost control of your weight and habits.
Either way, balance and moderation are always lessons to keep in mind. Going overboard on anything can be dangerous, even with healthy activities like exercise. It's important to know when you need to turn up the heat or dial it down.
Roll with the punches
If we've learned anything from the past two years, it's to roll with the punches. Life is going to throw its weight at you, whether you like it or not. You might lose your job, struggle with health, experience a loss, or have to move locations. The past year has only reinforced this lesson.
Sometimes, the situations we face in life can feel like tides in the ocean. It's tempting to try to push back, kick and splash, or gasp for air. However, some situations require you to stand still and allow the tides to wash over you. Accepting conditions as they come and for what they are will provide you with a sense of peace, enabling you to take better control.
Responsibility is a choice
Life is always throwing us curve balls, and you might feel like there are too many factors that are beyond your control. You might have a nagging boss, live in a lousy area, or suffer from health conditions; but taking responsibility for your life and circumstances is always a choice.
If a part of your life isn't where you'd like it to be, you can choose to take responsibility and change it. It's not possible to control the weather or your nagging boss, but you can control how you react and perceive the situation.
Choosing responsibility in a few areas of your life can make a dramatic difference in a short period. You'll be surprised when you actually think about what's in your realm of control. You can take responsibility for your job, health, finances, relationships, and emotions — just to name a few.
You can't go at it alone
The past few years have been more secluded for nearly everyone. City-wide quarantines, working from home, and isolation have made it hard to connect. At first, it was easy to ignore how these circumstances affected us; but now, after two years, it's safe to say we can't tackle life alone.
Humans are social creatures — we need good conversations, intimacy, and to be heard. It's essential to have a strong support network that you can depend on and connect to. We're all learning and accepting that our close bonds and relationships are what's truly important.
We're only halfway through the year, and it's been a doozy. The 2022 lessons learned so far have taught us to maintain balance, roll with the punches, and take responsibility for what we want to change. Most importantly, we're learning that our close ties and relationships mean more than we could've ever imagined.
