The Wheel of Life planner is a simple tool that can help you improve your life in all areas. It is a visual representation of your life, divided into different sections such as health, relationships, career, and finances. By assessing your satisfaction in each area, you can identify areas where you need to make improvements.


Understanding the Wheel of Life

The wheel of life is a visual tool that represents different areas of your life. The areas of life you choose to include in your Wheel of Life Planner are up to you, but the typical areas often included are as follows:

  • Health and well-being

  • Career

  • Relationships

  • Finances

  • Recreation

  • Environmental issues

  • Learning and education

  • Spirituality

The purpose of the wheel is to assess and improve satisfaction in each area you choose to add. For example, Emily is a single woman who works from home as a virtual assistant. She wants to make improvements in her life as she feels like she is in a rut.

As we can see from the example above, Emily has a few areas that she feels need her immediate attention. These areas are her relationships, recreation, and learning and education. She also feels that a few improvements could be made to her finances and her impact on the environment. For now, Emily wants to focus on the three lowest-scored areas.
