Unrest is a lightpost that illuminates bumps on the road to a better life. It keeps us striving to find fresh new ways to improve ourselves. If we never felt this way, we wouldn’t be motivated to push past the status quo.

Feeling a sense of unrest makes most of us feel uneasy because we know something has to change and often don’t know how. This discomfort can be mistaken for a bad thing; a sign that something is wrong. The opposite is true if you can openly evaluate where changes need to be made and follow through on them.

If you are feeling uneasy or discontent with some part of your life, pick one thing you know you could do to improve it and act on it today. Be prepared; it could mean looking for a new job or leaving a relationship that you know will never work.
