Rate the Areas of Your Life Exercise

Materials needed – printed copy of this exercise, pen, marker pen

A wheel of life which allows you to rate the different parts of your life
 

Above is a wheel showing the ten different areas of life. Have a think about each area and how you feel about it right now, and give it a rating between one and ten, where one is really not very good, and ten is the best it could be for you. Write that number in the little circle outside each segment.

If you like, you can split the ‘relationships’ segment down into more specific areas such as ‘significant other’, ‘friends’ and ‘family’.

* Please note, you can find descriptions of each area at the bottom of the page.

When you have rated each segment, we’re going to create a visual representation of your own current ‘wheel of life’. To do that, use your marker pen to draw an arc in each.

Next, connect those arcs along the straight lines.

So now you’ve created your current ‘wheel of life’, imagine if you were to attach two of these wheels to a bicycle and ride through your life on it – how would that feel? A little bumpy, maybe?

That’s perfectly normal, and the great news is that anywhere you have rating a seven or less is an opportunity to bring more fulfillment into your life.

So let’s do that now. Choose which area it is that you would like to focus on – the area where making a change would bring real fulfillment into your life.

Now you’ve chosen the area you want to focus on, let’s explore a little what it’s like right now, and what you want it to be like, then choose an action to commit to that will bring you more fulfillment in this area:
