How To Stop Living Your Life On Autopilot. Sage Advice From A Life Coach

Living life on autopilot can be easy and comfortable, but it can also lead to a feeling of dissatisfaction and a lack of fulfillment. When we operate on autopilot, we go through the motions of our daily routines without much thought or intention, allowing our lives to be controlled by outside factors rather than our own choices. This can leave us feeling stuck, unfulfilled, and unsure of how to break free from this cycle.

As a life coach, I’ve worked with many clients who have found themselves in this situation. In this article, I’ll be sharing some sage advice on how to stop living your life on autopilot and start living with intention and purpose.

Identify Your Values and Priorities

The first step in breaking free from autopilot mode is to identify your values and priorities. When we don’t have a clear understanding of what’s important to us, it’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day tasks and lose sight of our larger goals and aspirations.

Take some time to reflect on what truly matters to you. What are your core values? What do you want to prioritize in your life? Once you have a clear understanding of these things, you can begin to make choices that align with them.

Set Meaningful Goals

Once you have a clear understanding of your values and priorities, it’s time to set meaningful goals. When we have goals that are aligned with our values, we’re more likely to feel motivated and fulfilled as we work towards them.

Make sure your goals are specific, measurable, and achievable. Create a plan for how you’ll achieve each goal and set deadlines for yourself. When you have a clear plan in place, it’s much easier to stay on track and make progress towards your goals.

Practice Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the practice of being present and fully engaged in the current moment. When we’re living on autopilot, we’re often not fully present in our experiences, which can lead to a sense of disconnection and dissatisfaction.

Practice mindfulness by paying attention to your surroundings, your thoughts, and your feelings. Take time to savor enjoyable experiences and appreciate the small moments of joy in your day. By practicing mindfulness, you’ll be able to fully engage in your life and find more meaning and fulfillment in your daily experiences.

Take Action

Breaking free from autopilot mode requires action. It’s not enough to simply identify your values, set goals, and practice mindfulness. You need to take action to make changes in your life.

Start small by making one intentional choice each day that aligns with your values and goals. This could be something as simple as choosing to go for a walk instead of watching TV or making time to call a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while. As you build momentum, you’ll find it easier to make more intentional choices and break free from autopilot mode.

Seek Support

Breaking free from autopilot mode can be challenging, especially if you’ve been stuck in this cycle for a long time. Don’t be afraid to seek support from friends, family, or a professional if you need it.

A life coach can be a valuable resource as you work to identify your values, set goals, and make intentional choices in your life. They can provide guidance, support, and accountability as you work towards living with more intention and purpose.


Living on autopilot can be comfortable and easy, but it can also leave us feeling unfulfilled and disconnected from our lives. By identifying your values and priorities, setting meaningful goals, practicing mindfulness, taking action, and seeking support when needed, you can break free from autopilot mode and start living with intention and purpose.
