One of the easiest ways to do a life audit is to just ask yourself ten questions for each area of your life and then give yourself a score to find out how to rate yourself.
Below I’ve outlined ten questions for the relaxation life area so you can easily assess where you’re currently at – simply give yourself a score out of ten for each question with one being awful and ten being excellent, with no room for improvement.
- Do you schedule in time specifically for relaxing?
- Do you take time to visualize?
- Do you take time to meditate or practice deep breathing?
- Do you feel you have enough vacation time?
- Do you go on restorative vacations abroad or somewhere new?
- Do you spend as much time as you need to relax so that you are in a calm state afterwards?
- How satisfied are you with the quality of how you relax?
- How satisfied are you with how often you relax?
- Would you like to relax more? (Reverse scoring: Yes definitely = 1, Not at all – I’m happy thanks = 10)
- How satisfied are you with how relaxed you are most of the time?
Now add up your total score. Below is the scoring key:
1-10 = 1 mark out of 10 (poor)
11-20 = 2 marks out of 10
21-30 = 3 marks out of 10
31-40 = 4 marks out of 10
41-50 = 5 marks out of 10
51-60 = 6 marks out of 10
61-70 = 7 marks out of 10
71-80 = 8 marks out of 10
81-90 = 9 marks out of 10
91-100 = 10 marks out of 10 (amazing)
